Dr. Frieda L Millhouse-Jones has the following 1 specialty
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Millhouse-Jones is a good doctor. I have thoroughly enjoyed being her patient and believe she cares. The problem is that the staff around her leaves much to be desired so after about four years, I am just not putting up with it anymore. Let's face it - you spend more time dealing with the team around most doctors than the doctor herself, so if her team is bad, at some point, you just have to make a decision. I made mine today. From appointment scheduling to diagnostic testing to billing, they are the most inept, uncaring group of 'medical' professionals I've ever seen. The staff wastes an awful lot of time talking to each other instead of caring for patients, and they are so arrogant they don't hide it (ie taking personal phone calls while you stand waiting; finishing their personal gossip sessions even though they see you approaching to ask a question, etc). I've also had more than one incident in which I had to call repeatedly just to get someone to follow through and schedule an appointment. One word to the wise is that you must follow up with their billing team following appointments. Each year I've been there they have repeatedly held onto refunds I should have received, ranging from $153 to nearly $400. The latest one I just learned about today, and the clerk said once again that they 'forgot' to send it to me 13 months ago after they received my insurance company's payment. No apology. No expediting. No prior communication. In fact, I had to initiate the call and just asked them to check as another patient with good insurance had warned me of this standard practice when I first started going to Laureate. If Dr. Millhouse-Jones ever changes the team with which she's associated, I'd be amongst the first to follow her, but for now, I will just have to find another good doctor who has a staff that is capable and caring as well.
Dr. Millhouse-Jones was good. I really liked her because she was down-to-earth, knowledgeable and seemed to care about me as a patient. I would like to see her grow more in terms of taking time to discuss alternative treatment plans, BUT my major issue is the office practices. It took me several phone calls to secure an appointment, and their follow up leaves much to be desired. The staff seems to spend more time talking to each other than taking care of patients. Everything from scheduling to billing to check-in/processing to follow up - this is one of the worst office experiences I've ever had.
