Dr. Frey is amazing and I am thankful for her care.


The provider was very willing to explain everything she said so I could understand


Dr. Frey is amazing! She truly cares about her patients and it shows, she takes time to listen and find best method very glad to have found her office.


My appointment was supposed to be for a full work up, a full work up is not what I got. I left my appointment with more questions than when I went in. Doctor suggested multiple treatments within 15 minutes or so but the appointment felt so rushed I was not able to discuss treatments with her fully as well as the reasons why I felt the treatments I was currently on weren't working. I had waited almost 10 MONTHS for this appointment while dealing with scary symptoms. I Informed the doctor of a new diagnosis but she didn't look at my issues from that new diagnosis only my old one so I still have all the same issues that I've been battling for over a year now.


Doctor Frey has been great with my care from the very first visit. Doctor Frey listens to my concerns and explains things in a way I can understand. Outstanding Physician.


Dr. Frye was amazing! I would certainly recommend her to others who are in search of a neurologist. I'm looking forward to seeing her again at my next appointment. She did a good job at explaining what happened to me and further explaining to me how we can further figure out options for my care.






Always attentive and very thorough.


I have already mentioned this center to other people.


Excellent... I have already refered others.


Dr Fry is an angel. God bless you


Dr. Frey is my favorite doctor. She is listens, explains things well and is caring. She sets the bar high for my other providers.


I am now a fan of this organization and will seek all care through them now.




I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Frey, I have been a patient of hers for a long time now, and she has helped me so much!!


One of the best doctors I've had. Not only thorough in explanations, but also in asking me for details of my experience with my seizure issues. And most important, actually listening and answering to any and all of my questions, and providing actual thoughtful answers


Always professional and great communication! One Dr visit I don't mind going to


Dr Frey is always very good about taking time to listen to my concerns and how I am feeling as to what meds work and don't work


Dr Frey is awesome!!!




Dr. Fry was simply wonderful. She actually listened and explained things to her doctors have been unable to explain. I have been dealing with chronic pain and other health issues for over a decade, so it was nice to have some answers.


Dr. Frey was fantastic. She listened to me & made sure to explain everything to me. She also asked my opinion in regards to my treatment.


Dr. Frey is the most amazing kind hearted doctor. I would never ask for a better one


No complaints


They all love there job, it show's.


Dr Frey listens and explains very well.


DR. Frey is the best. Very professional and very knowledgeable. It is very obvious she cares for her patients. I have seen other Neurologists in so called Big Cities and usually feel like I am just another patient being pushed through and not being heard. Some have barely glanced up from the clipboard they have in their hands during my visit, but not DR. Frey. DR. Frey takes the time to ask you questions and ask you If you have any questions. So happy to be under her care.


Dr. Frey has been amazing at treating my issues. She listens to my concerns and tries to find a way to address them. I never feel like anything I say is being ignored or dismissed. I don't know where I would be now without her excellent care and support.


Dr. Frey is an excellent dr who is very caring


Dr. Frey always addressing issues. Follows through. Response is great. Over all wonderful.


I love Dr. Frey. I've had numerous other neurologists and she outshines them all!


Dr Frey and the assistant were very professional and I felt confident the care I received was very good. I was referred to MHC Institute for Neuroscience for an EMG, so Dr Frey is not my primary neurologist. The doctor and her staff were very professional and did a good and thorough job, but seemed hesitant to give advice or recommendations because they were not the primary physicians for my case. That makes sense and I am satisfied with the service s I received


She explained talked to us. Was very good. Had him walk to see if he was moving his legs good. Very kind & caring.


Dr. Margaret Frey is the best of the best! I've recommended her to anyone who needs a neurologist. From her friendliness to her concern for your best interest, she is AMAZING!


I have recommended your practice to several friends & family.


Dr Frey listened closely to my concerns and was able to provide solutions to issues.

*Dr. Frey was great, is great.

Dr. Frey suggested exercises for my neck. She had her staff mail them to me!


Very impressed how concerned Dr Frey was, straight to the point.




When I met with Dr. Frye, I made sure she understood everything that was happening to me and all of my medical concerns so I wouldn't have to make another appointment so soon or other phone calls because I don't like dealing with the office.


she seemed more concerned about my condition


all good


Dr. Frey was very compassionate & considerate for my significant other's concerns. Dr. Frey is the first dr. to provide appreciate education to maximize my understanding of my Dx.

Dr. Frey is phenomenal. She was the 3rd neurologist I've seen and I am so glad that I was lead to her.


All my experiences have been very good. I drive 1 hour to get there. If I wasn't happy I wouldn't.


Very good


Dr. Frey is an excellent physician. We appreciate the time she takes to help us understand what my mother is dealing with. She also helps us to make good decisions for her care since her mind is not good. She also addressed my mother with respect and compassion.


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.

She has completed a fellowship in clinical neurophysiology and serves as the Medical Director of the MDA/ALS Care Center in Owosso.

Memorial Healthcare’s Institute for Neuroscience is world-renowned in the neurology field. 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
