Dr. Frey is truly sincere regarding the health of his patients. I could not ask for a more sincerely concerned, caring, professional primary care physician than Dr. James Frey. I truly consider him a friend as well as my doctor. Many people do not look forward to going to see their doctor. I look forward to my visits with Dr. Frey.

from Tom March 31, 2017 for James H. Frey, MD

Hum. Where to start. I've been A patient of Dr. Frey for well over 20 years. I was with him before he went to MDVIP. When he changed to this national group I thought I would give him one year. Well 10+ years later I wouldn't change a thing. He takes genuine interest not only in your health in your personal life also. I can't say I always look forward to the annual… See more

Last year, in the early spring I broke a fall by grabbing a table on the way down with my right hand injuring my shoulder. After a couple of weeks of therapy exercise on my on and ultrasound by my chiropractor friend, I texted Dr. Frey, telling him what had happened and the treatment I had tried and asked about an MRI. He agreed set it up at a location convenient to me right away. A few days… See more

Dr Frey became my doctor in 1988. Through the years he has always been there for me when I need him. He has seen how my body has changed and is good about talking with specialist that I may need to see so they understand my back ground. He is easy to talk to and I feel he tries to understand how I feel. It is a comfort for me to have him to intervene for me if I have to go in the hospital so I… See more

from Judy March 29, 2017 for James H. Frey, MD

Dr. Frey is very much a friend that I have all the confidence in as my primary doctor. He always has time for me if I have to call him after hours and is very unrushed when I see him in the office. I never have had to wait very long when I have an appointment. I appreciate this very much and his staff is just as friendly and ready to help. I tell all my friends how nice it is to have a… See more

from Phillip March 24, 2017 for James H. Frey, MD

My wife sees a number of specialists for several uniquely different issues. We needed a medical professional who could take the lead and coordinate the care and information from these multiple sources and combine it with a direct approach to her personally. Dr. Frey and his office have succeeded in doing this while also providing direct medical care for her. The overwhelming endorsement is… See more

from Angela in AL February 20, 2014 for James H. Frey, MD

Dr. James H. Frey of Birmingham has been my doctor since 2005; since before MDVIP ever came into our lives. My gynecologist had trained under Dr. Freys father, so I knew what kind of mindset had fostered his desire to practice medicine.
I am a trial lawyer and, as I began my relationship with Dr. Frey, I already understood all the arguments about tort reform and managed care. I knew… See more

from Chuck in AL February 10, 2014 for James H. Frey, MD

I have been using Dr. Frey for just over 6 months. I like him a lot. A doctor also needs good support from his employees. Ashley and Brittney are super. They are always ready to take questions from me and get back to me.

from Geraldine in AL February 8, 2014 for James H. Frey, MD

I am very pleased with my relationship with Dr. Frey and his staff. They are always available when I need them. Dr. Frey always puts my well-being first. I have had some issues with my health and he makes sure that all are addressed.
I always speak highly of him to others.

from David in AL February 6, 2014 for James H. Frey, MD

Dr. Frey has always been very responsive to our needs and questions. We have emailed him late at night with health concerns hoping to get a response the next day but instead within minutes we have received a response. I could not be more pleased with his assistance both after and during office hours.

With his assistance, I have lost 20 pounds since our last visit, have started… See more
