Worst Doctor I Have Ever Seen!!!!

The staff is extremely unprofessional and rude. This doctor does not know what he is doing and does not explain anything to you. He messed up a procedure and left permanent damage that is beyond painful. I wouldn't wish this horrible experience on my worst enemy. He should not be able to practice.

Top Doc!!

Dr. Freint took out the tonsils/adenoids of all 3 of our sons. Not only was he extremely professional and kind, but compassionate and really took the time to make our sons and us feel as though we understood and felt comfortable with what he would be doing. From his wonderful nurse, Bronda, all the way down to the post-op visit, this was a top-notch experience and we highly recommend him to anyone looking for the best you can find in a Pediatric Otolaryngologist!!
