$1,500.00 Out of Pocket Will Pop Your Eyes Out of Socket

MD VIP is boutique medicine for very affluent people. Years ago, you had to pay $1,500.00 out of pocket to join MD VIP as a patient. Some doctors love MD VIP because they're on the golf course much more than they're taking time with you as a patient. For doctors who want to semi-retire, it's a great answer. If you're a patient, forget about it. Even when you really need medication, you're not going to get it prescribed if Doc is closing the office early for a round of golf. He even reminds you that you're paying for his luxurious office. So sad how so many lose their way.

DR FREY IS BEST DOCTOR IN BIRMINGHAM

I love going to the new MDVIP. You never have to wait and everything is on a personal level. Dr. Frey remembers everything you have ever told him and you are able to talk to him like your best friend. There is no intimidation between Doctor and patient. The office is peaceful and your blood pressure doesn't jump sky high just from waiting in the waiting room or dealing with the wrong people at the check in window. Just love it.
