Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Frey ""Replacing pain with life". There are pain clinics around here that overbill patients for pain services. They look to write prescriptions so that you will be dependent on them and then they can bill you for injections - be careful of their billing practices. See how long they sit with you to discuss other options besides drugs, pain pumps and injections. See if they have email. See if they really care about you. Follow your heart! God Bless! askthedoc@pacificpain.net"

Dr Frey is very arrogant and does not listen or care about his patients. He can be downright cruel sometimes and is so scared of the DEA that he makes everyone out to be a drug seeker. He is extremely unhelpful and unprofessional. I don't recommend him if you're suffering from chronic pain and need...more
