Professional statement

Dr. Frey is originally from New Jersey. She attended medical school at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey School of Osteopathic Medicine. After receiving her degree, Dr. Frey was the Chief Resident at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Morningside and Mount Sinai West in New York City. She is board-certified with additional training in Suboxone treatment for addiction, and also in E.C.T. from Columbia University. Dr. Frey has been a faculty member at Jefferson College of Medicine and has been a supervising physician at the not-for-profit Family Guidance Center of Warren County, New Jersey.

Dr. Frey has practiced psychiatry since she finished her residency in 2016. She strives to provide high-quality medication management while also developing strong relationships with her patients. Dr. Frey believes that when patients feel comfortable with their health-care providers, they are more likely to comply with treatment and take an active role in their mental health. She likes to get to know her patients and teach them therapeutic techniques to help their medication work more effectively.

Dr. Frey has been practicing telemedicine for the last six months and appreciates the flexibility it provides her patients. She is committed to providing convenient, high-quality medication management through Skypiatrist’s secure, HIPAA compliant video chat. She has extensive experience treating personality disorders and addiction.

In her spare time, Dr. Frey practices yoga and takes interior design classes at Parsons School of Design.
