About Dr. Paul E Frye MD
Dr. Paul E Frye has the following 2 specialties
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Iâm surprised to see the negative reviews on here about Dr. Frye because heâs a good psychiatrist. I was an employee of a psychiatric clinic a few years ago and interacted with many psychiatrists which made me picky when choosing one for myself. The only thing I can think of is that some people may have mistaken his analytical approach for unfriendliness. He has always been very nice to me and has valued my opinion when it comes to treatment. He is very different from the first psychiatrist I saw who barely asked me any questions and would prescribe additional medications on what seemed like a whim that I wouldnât even get filled(a month worth of sleeping pills when I had a week where I couldnât sleep because my dog died, etc). I prefer Dr. Fryeâs methodical approach because there arenât physical tests for most psychiatric diagnoses so Iâm relying on his analysis of me and my symptoms. He may not ask me about what I did over the weekend, but his genuine concern for my mental health vastly makes up for that.

I posted this on another review site, but wanted to get this here to get the word out. I see a lot of negative reviews on him, but I have my experiences to be mainly positive (really -- I have anxiety over any type of doctor appointment). I've been a patient of Dr. Frye's for over four years and I've never really had a problem with him. He is always straight and down-to-business. I am there mainly for medication management, so my appointments are never long. He asks me how I'm doing and if I'm having any problems with my medication... I see a lot of people complain that he is not very personable, but I am fine with that -- I am there to see my doctor, not a social visit. It took some time to find the right medication for me, and that is not without some real mental breakdowns. It would be really frustrating, at times. If something didn't work out, then we would try a different medication. I must admit, it makes me feel like a medical guinea pig, but with psychiatric medication, it is tough to tell how it will affect the individual (YMMV). I've always found the staff to be really pleasant. Aside from a time when I had to wait over ten minutes, my wait time is usually around five minutes. The offices and waiting rooms are clean. It took me a long time to find a psych doc that I could stick with -- and I have been through many doctors. I will most likely stay with Dr. Frye as long as I can.
