It is great to have an understanding doctor when you are in pain and attentive as well while trying to find your problem by spending time with you. He helped guide us through our problem with concern to find an answer for us. He stayed in contact with us even when we went to other doctors to correct our problem. Thanks, Dr. Frey for your help in making life better.
