I am a Registered Nurse who was injured on the job --- my lower back. I was referred by Work Comp to see Dr. George Frey, and although he seemed pleasant enough at first meeting, you could tell he was always watching the clock to move on to his next patient which I should have taken as a major hint not to use him for upcoming surgery. But unfortunately, I let him do my spinal fusion which according to the many tests and the disc-o-gram in particular showed 3 levels to be involved; L3-4 through S1--Dr. Frey decided to do only L3-4. After the surgery, my pain never went away and I kept going to his office which I always dreaded because the wait time was always at least an hour or more and then only to be pushed off onto his PA when I had specifically requested an appointment with Dr. Frey. On one of my later appointments, I was placed in a patient room with a PA that kept running back and forth from my room to Dr. Frey who was obviously too busy to leave his in house staff meeting to see me, his patient--I was in that office for that appointment for over 2 hours and never did get to see Dr. Frey--I was so humiliated and angry that he cared so little--NO SERVICE AFTER THE SALE is a very appropriate term I thought of--he made his money off me so did not want to be bothered any longer. I then made another appointment that I had to wait over and hour-and-a half which I had to cancel because I had to pick up my daughter from school---this Doctor has no respect for their patients time and never gave an explanation of why Dr. Frey was running late! Here is the whopper and the reason I would not recommend Dr. Frey to do surgery on anyone. As I stated, he only fused level L3-L4, when he should have fused all levels---L3-4, L5-S1. When I finally was able to get an actual appointment with Dr. Frey, I asked why he only fused the one level when the Disc-o-gram clearly showed all levels to be reactive to pain--he pulled out my test results and looked at them as though he had never seen them before and agreed it was indeed reasonable to include those levels as well--great, because he did not take the time needed prior to the first surgery to accurately lay out a proper plan for surgery, I was now going to not only miss more work but have to endure another surgery. At that point I did not trust or feel comfortable with Dr. Frey so upon the recommendation of one of his own office staff, I was recommended to see Dr. Sanjay Jatana who did all the proper tests and read them thoroughly and agreed that all 3 levels should have been done in the first surgery. Upon Dr. Jatana re-opening up my back, he found that the 1 level Dr. Frey had done now had 2 fractures in it from his surgery and had to be repaired by Dr. Jatana--do not only did Dr. Frey not do all the correct levels, but the one level he did do, he damaged even further. If all this was not bad enough, Dr. Frey was not happy that I went for a second opinion with another doctor, so when Work Comp was trying to find doctors to disagree with Dr. Jatana who stated I needed the additional 2 levels fused, Dr. Frey all of a sudden changed his opinion (after fully documenting fusing the additional levels was a reasonable next course of action), he now stated that they did not need to be fused. NOTHING WORSE THAN A SO-CALLED TRUSTWORTHY PHYSICIAN WHO LIES???? DR. FREY, DON'T YOU REMEMBER YOUR HIPPOCRATIC OATH???? THE FIRST THING IS TO DO NO HARM---YOU NOT ONLY DID NOT DO THE CORRECT LEVELS OF MY SPINE BUT YOU FURTHER DAMAGED THE LEVEL YOU DID DO AND THEN LIED ABOUT THE NEED TO DO THE ADDITIONAL LEVELS WHEN YOU PREVIOUSLY STATED IN YOUR OWN ORIGINAL NOTES THAT I WOULD FURTHER BENEFIT FROM HAVING THE ADDITIONAL LEVELS FUSED---SO WHAT IS YOUR EXCUSE FOR THIS CHANGE OF OPINION-WITHOUT ANY OTHER TESTS THAT WERE EVER VIEWED BY YOU MAY I ASK???? IN MY OPINION, YOU ARE NOT ONLY A DISGRACE TO THE MANY FINE PHYSICIANS OUT THERE BUT SHOULD NOT BE PRACTICING MEDICINE AT ALL AND SHOULD HAVE YOUR LICENSE REVOKED! How many other people have you made suffer at your own hands because you were too busy to be bothered to take the time to thoroughly read test results and just do surgery blindly without the correct information and then turn on them as you did me when your ethics where questioned??? I am appalled that this was even allowed to happen and will be writing to the Physicians Licensing board to file a complaint against your license so this does not happen to anyone else! Either practice medicine right and obey and stand up to the Hippocratic Oath you took or get out of your profession and quit doing more harm to people than good
---THERE IS NEVER AN EXCUSE TO LIE AND NEEDLESS TO SAY I AM NOT ONLY ANGRY OVER THIS WHOLE MESSY EXPERIENCE BUT HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE I TRUSTED YOU TO CARE FOR ME AND TAKE THE APPROPRIATE ACTIONS NEEDED REGARDING SURGERY AND YOU DID NOT---YOUR SCORE IS NOT EVEN A 1 WITH ME, IT IS A NEGATIVE 1,0000!!!!!!
