I was sent to Dr. Frimpong in July by my PCP. He was not able to see me until August 27 and wanted me to have a test. One of the places that does the test requires a credit card kept by them on file with consent to charge the card after the test with no information on how much until they decide to charge the card. Having been a victim of identity theft from another health care office I was told there was another place that does the testing and they would be called for this by Dr. Frimpong's nurse. Approx. 2 weeks later I was called with an appointment scheduled at the place that requires the card be kept on file and when I asked if they had called the other place that does the testing I was told no. I informed the scheduler of the problem and that the nurse advised the other other place would be called the scheduler advise she would call the other place. That was 3 weeks ago and none of my calls to the scheduler have been returned.

Everything went really well. My only comment is that more educational information in writing at the consultation. There are many questions about the surgery and recovery that would have been helpful to review. Specifically the length of recovery, use of neck brace, etc.

Dr. Frimpong spent a lot of time with me explaining my problem, showing me the problem on my MRI and explaining what was to be done to correct the problem. He has always been concerned about how I'm doing and never rushes during my appointment. Have enjoyed meeting him and working with him.
