Dr. Frey is a wonderful and very compassionate person


I would recommend Dr. Frey to everyone I know! She is the best doctor I have ever seen.


Dr. Frey was the best with everything I needed. and I really appreciate the fact that she really listened to all of my concerns and explained everything I needed


Dr. Frey and her team are stellar. They are a definite asset to Memorial Healthcare.


Dr. Frey takes the time to look the patient in the eye and have a real appointment instead of looking at a computer. She is fully engaged in the conversation and listens. Whether I agree or disagree, I appreciate her effort to communicate. She is not condescending and that is very important to me.




every aspect of my experience with Dr. Frey was absolutely excellent


My only problem with this office is scheduling and prescription call ins. When she prescribes you something it takes days before it is sent in and if you have a question for her it takes just as long if not longer to hear back. Scheduling is also far out.


I didn't appreciate the doctor asking so many questions about my accident prior when I was there for my routine check up and when I asked her about it she told me that she has been in enough medical insurance lawsuit claims I let her know several times I was not there for that I was here today for my routine check up that was made a year ago. Also didn't appreciate her telling me that a deer accident doesn't usually do that much damage.

Since 2015, Memorial Healthcare has been the first, or one of the first, hospitals in the State of Michigan to administer drug therapy treatments for its patients including Lemtrada (for MS), Ocrevus (for MS), Radicava (ALS), and Spinraza (for Spinal Muscular Atrophy). In addition, Memorial Healthcare is one of just three MDA care clinics in the State of Michigan.

About Spinraza

  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Spinraza in December 2016, the first drug approved to treat children and adults with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a rare and often fatal genetic disease affecting muscle strength and movement.
  • Memorial Healthcare is one of five hospitals in the State of Michigan administrating Spinraza to adults, aged 15 years and older with the goal of treatment being able to stabilize the disease process
  • Spinraza is administered in partnership with interventional radiologists on an outpatient basis on the main campus of Memorial Healthcare
  • After its initial dose, Spinraza is given at 14-day intervals; with the 4th dose administered 30 days after the 3rd Maintenance doses are administered once every 4 months thereafter
  • Dr. Frey treated her first patient with Spinraza in December 2017. Early results have shown:
    • After just one treatment, a 23 year old patient has seen some improvement in muscle movement including being able to lift a glass and plate and roll from her back to her side
    • A patient in his 60’s, is now able to push an elevator button, something he hasn’t been able to do in quite some time
