When I see *Dr. Freilich he is completely focused on me & my needs, never rushed and listens. His explanation are easy to understand and his manner reassuring -
Aug 4, 2019
Dr. Freilich was extremely patient with me and answered my questions and concerns. I feel as if he did not rush me to move on to his next patient. All of his staff that I encountered were very helpful and very pleasant too.

Jun 20, 2019
Dr. Freilich explained things thoroughly and without judgement. The risks of continuing with my current status were explained.
Jun 20, 2019
Very excellent experience. Was on a wait list, and I was able to be seen 3 weeks before original appointment had been scheduled.
Jun 20, 2019
I have a great respect for Dr. F. and his abilities as a Gastroenterologist. He is an excellent clinician and professional.
Jun 20, 2019
Again, an excellent experience in all areas.
Jun 20, 2019
All involved were pleasant and seemed most efficient.
Jun 20, 2019
My experience was relatively good since the doctor explained we can go step by step and did not seem to offer a rush to judgment. I felt comfortable with him although as probably expected, a little uneasy that I couldn't get an immediate answer to my problem.
Jun 18, 2019
This was the most successful GI visit I have ever had.
Jun 17, 2019
*Dr. Freilich seems very knowledgeable. He explains things well and he follows up by keeping me informed of the results of any tests done. He is the only dr. I have that does that on a current basis.
Jun 2, 2019
Dr. & staff are very thorough.
May 29, 2019
Dr. F was thorough. He was helpful in his suggestions, making my anxiety levels drop. He was not rushed and took time to talk with my prior health issues. Nice doc!
May 15, 2019

Only dealt with the Doctor
Apr 18, 2019
This is a well run office overall but the providers scheduled hours are impossible. If you work a job its so hard to see him, as he never has a day he works late or really early and is off on Fridays.
Apr 18, 2019
The doctor was amazing but I do not felt he cared for my issue however he was informative and very in depth with the information.
Apr 16, 2019
It's always a pleasure visiting this office.
Apr 16, 2019

Everyone was very nice, cordial and most importantly hard working, humbled peeps
Apr 15, 2019
Doctor Froelich is a very good old time Physcian who does not rush you, speaks my language . He reminds me of of now extinct mentor of medicine to anyone who needs to learn from a residency of many years pass! I am of the opinion that he choose medicine as a career choice of giving vs receiving ! We are only residents of SC for less than three years and it would appear, at least in my humble opinion that choices of quality health care are index under "slim pickings" .
Mar 27, 2019
Doctor was very professional and thorough. I felt that he took the time I needed to solve my medical problems. Staff was extremely friendly and efficient to get me in and out. excellent experience all around! Thank you Dr. Frelich
Mar 24, 2019
Dr. Friedlich is superb. He listens carefully and completely understands my issues. I have been to several gastroenterologists in the area.He is by far the best.
Mar 24, 2019
The only problem I have is that he is so busy that it is difficult to get an appointment.
Mar 19, 2019
Did not have a "bad" experience. But, waiting 20+ minutes in the exam room before seeing the doctor did not make for a "good" experience either.
Mar 12, 2019
I called because I was experiencing an illness I needed to be seen for within a few days. I was told the first opening was more than a month out. I was told I would be put on a list if anyone cancelled but I never received a call. I ended up going to the emergency room for treatment. After that I called the office again and practically begged to be seen. I was again put on a waiting list, but this time I got an appointment for 2 days later. The doctor was very kind and helpful.
Mar 12, 2019
This doctor is very busy and it is difficult to get in if you need care.
Mar 12, 2019
I saw the doctor a little over an hour from my appointment time.
