Dr. Frey is very attentive and shows concern and well being for his patients. The MDVIP program is wonderful and if all doctors in the program are like Fr. Frey than there shouldn't be any complaints from their patients.

Happy Doctor's Day, see you soon.

from Rebecca in AL March 22, 2018 for James H. Frey, MD

Friendship happens in a special moment when someone takes the time to reach out and comfort others by showing compassion, trust, and hope that no one else can make happen. I want to thank you for giving me your friendship. It has always been a treasure. Thank you for helping me be the best me I can be. My life is so much better with you as my friend and my doctor.

I was a patient of Dr. Freys before he joined MDVIP. He is the same caring, kind, loving, intelligent doctor and man he was prior to becoming a MDVIP doc.

He is concerned about every… See more

My husband David and I have been patients of Dr.Frey and his staff for a number of years. This came about as a result of a serious health issue and lack of assistance from our Dr. at that time. We made it threw this bad experience and committed ourselves to finding a Dr. and staff that we felt confident would be interested in our health and would be there for us when we needed them.We talked… See more

from Kay in AL March 5, 2018 for James H. Frey, MD

Dr Frey listens to my concern and issues like no other doctor I've ever seen. He is compassionate and caring but more important he is knowledgeable. He explains the choices he is making in my medications and my plan of care so that I can understand and more fully participate in my care.
