Q: What is the best way to schedule an appointment with your office?

A: Yes, we always welcome new patients.
Q: Do you do x-rays in your office?
A: Yes, we have a radiology technician and x-ray suite on-site for your convenience. Dr. Frye reviews the films immediately after they are done and takes time to show you the films and explain any findings. Advanced imaging is done at our local medical center facilities.
Q: What if my child needs a cast for a broken bone? Can this be done in the office?
A: Yes, Dr. Frye applies and removes each cast herself. You can trust that an experienced clinician is managing your child's fracture.
Q: Do you have waterproof casts?
A: We are very proud to offer the EXOS waterproof bracing system. It is a removable, customized, waterproof type of bracing for treatment of broken bones and other bone/joint injury. The Exos braces are molded directly to each patient for a customized, best possible fit. Families love the "no cast saw required" removal and the convenience of being able to continue water activities (when appropriate, based on individual injury). For more information, please check out the DonJoy website.
Q: Can Dr. Frye talk with my child's coach about returning them to play?
A: Yes, a school/sports note with return to play recommendations can be written at your visit. If the coach/athletic trainer would like to speak with Dr. Frye directly, she is happy to do so in order to make sure everyone is on the same page and your child returns to activity or sport safely.
Q: Does Dr. Frye do clearance exams after concussion?
A: Yes, she will do a comprehensive visit including history and physical exam to determine that an athlete is ready to return to play. We have the official MHSAA clearance forms in our office and will complete these for high school athletes when clearance is given.
Q: What insurances do you accept?
A: We are extremely proud to accept a wide variety of insurance carriers. Please call the office prior to your appointment to confirm your insurance information.
