Thyroid Health is our Passion

Many patients suffer for years with symptoms of an underactive thyroid but have been told that "everything is normal". There is no one perfect way, no one symptom nor test result, that will properly diagnose low thyroid function or hypothyroidism. The key is to look at the whole picture – your symptoms and your blood tests – and then decide.

Most doctors just check something called thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and sometimes your free T4 level, which doesn’t give a full picture of the thyroid. In fact, even the interpretation of this test is incorrect most of the time.

The key is the right testing to confirm that a sluggish thyroid is contributing to a stalled metabolism and other problems. Once you know this for sure there are many ways to help correct thyroid problems.


Whether you have a simple cold and need reassurance, need to have a second opinion about your health, want a health check, or need a private referral, we are happy to help you.

Our times are flexible and appointments are often available on evenings and Saturdays. 

We invite all new patients to attend a Registration Health Check.
This includes a blood pressure assessment, height, weight, body composition analysis, and lung function testing. ​

You can always bring a chaperone with you.

Unfortunately we can not provide A&E, maternity, minor surgery or detox services. 
We do not stock or prescribe controlled drugs. 
Please contact your NHS practice for further advice, or call 111.


Functional Medicine takes a new approach. We want to find out WHY you are feeling unwell and whether there are any triggers we can remove to help you get better.

Whether you have been suffering from asthma, eczema, IBS, chronic joint pains, headaches, or fatigue​, functional medicine has a different toolkit to investigate further.

We can look deeper​, using extensive laboratory tests which are often not available in the NHS. Some tests travel to Germany or the US to specialist laboratories.

Introduction to CountryHealth by Dr Oliver Frey, MD MRCGP

 

Private GP Practice with Focus on Functional Medicine

Our patients usually get in touch when they need help that the NHS cannot provide. We can advise you on symptoms, organise specialist tests that are often not available on the NHS and can also refer you privately to specialists. We want to find the root cause of your problems, not just cover the symptoms with medication. Our affiliate practitioners complement our services to provide a multidisciplinary approach to your health challenges.

What patients say about Dr Frey

Read what previous and current patients said about Dr Frey. For confidentiality reasons, names have been changed.

  • I went to see Dr. Frey with several undiagnosed problems, these were primarily issues regarding my digestion and fatigue. Following Dr Frey's advice, I eliminated gluten and dairy products from my diet and I noticed an improvement in my overall health. I was really pleased with the service I received as it was caring, detailed and had a refreshing outlook on health compared to other doctors I had previously seen.

  • I am so glad I came. Thank you so much for listening to me and for being willing to help me on my health journey :-) I so appreciated your wisdom.

  • Since starting the elimination diet and now cutting out any remaining foods on the 'do not eat' list I've noticed that my body is rapidly changing shape. ... I never knew it'd be so easy to get such rapid results.

  • Having someone medically trained to work with and point me in the right direction has been a huge relief as finally I feel that the cause of my health issues are being looked at not just the symptoms being medicated.

  • "Great service; superb. It is important to note that IgE tests for allergies - this test, IgG, is more for intolerances. I used it as I believed it could be a useful pointer for experimenting with possibly beneficial dietary changes. I have now stopped eating dairy and some other foods, and am definitely feeling more healthy and alive. Many thanks!"

  • Thank you for seeing me yesterday afternoon. I found it very insightful and your observations have confirmed something I had been wondering about for some time.

  • Thanks for my excellent care, appreciate it very much!

  • You are one of the nicest doctors I ever met, it is your human skills!

  • You are a lifesaver! Thanks for listening.

  • This was the first proper consultation I have ever had!
