Testimonials from patients of Dr. Frey

from Terry in AL March 19, 2020 for James H. Frey, MD

You are strictly THE BEST! I am a fairly new patient that has had some very challenging health issues for Dr. Frey to navigate through. He has cared for me better than any physician I have ever had for a PCP. Being a Registered Nurse and having worked with quite a few physicians, Dr. Frey is the easiest to talk with and has the best bedside manner than any doctor that I have ever personally… See more

from Teresa in AL March 13, 2020 for James H. Frey, MD

I had been to several doctors and was told conflicting things by each doctor. My friend Kept insisting Dr. Frey would get to the bottom of the issues|concerns for me! She was So kind to encourage me to see him, as she was 110% correct about him as an Internal Medicine Doctor. He spends so much time with my chart and I feel like he “listens” to make the best diagnosis and treatment For me !!!… See more

from Judy in AL March 12, 2020 for James H. Frey, MD

I was a patient of Dr. Frey before he joined MDVIP and I thought I would be satisfied with another doctor. but I tried 2 others and just was not pleased with the attention I received from them. That is when I made the decision to go back to Dr. Frey and I have been thoroughly pleased. Any time I have a need I am able to talk to him directly, even it's after hours. I try not to abuse… See more

I started seeing Dr Frey as my regular physician over 25 years ago when he was treating my mother for her MANY health issues. I found him to be a very thorough physician who was very easy to talk to -- and he listens! My family is the type to have those weird symptoms that don't necessarily point to anything specific. And I'm no different.

With life changes and job changes… See more

from Sherry in AL March 10, 2020 for James H. Frey, MD

I honestly don’t know what I would do without Dr. Frey and his amazing team. It is life changing when you know that your Doctor knows you and watches over your health. I have been a patient of Dr Frey’s from day one of him joining MdVIP. The comprehensive physical is unlike anything you would ever find at a regular practice. Year over year he compares my physical details. He takes lots of time… See more

I've been going to Dr. Frey for gosh, almost 30 years now (wow) and I have NEVER had a complaint about him. He's always been caring, knowledgeable, compassionate, and informed about anything pertaining to my healthcare. Around 10 years ago I began having female problems. Since he isn't an OB/GYN and I didn't have one (I hadn't needed one since I'd previously had… See more
