I saw Dr. Frim for treatment of congenital hydrocephalus that was diagnosed as an adult. He is a caring and intelligent doctor. Great bedside manner! He will spend as long as it takes to answer your questions and concerns. That being said, you will have to wait. His willingness to spend as much time as necessary with patients makes him run late. Every time I have seen him, he is running at least an hour or more behind schedule. I am more than willing to wait for a doctor of his expertise and compassion. He was my second and last opinion on my condition. He performed a successful surgery and I now see him regularly for follow up appointments.
This doctor gets mixed reviews and it is understandable - he seems very good at covering up what he doesn't know. I asked around about his reputation and soon found out that many people across the country (neurosurgeons and pediatric neurosurgeons) consider him to be a quack. When I saw him, I got that sense as well and quickly left.
