“I had the pleasure of hiring and supervising Frieda for several months during the Fall of 2019, when our leading healthcare / pharmaceutical advertising and marketing company was in need of a freelance SVP, Medical Director with expertise in the cardiology arena. Frieda joined my Medical and Scientific Affairs team as a remote freelance Medical Director and immediately hit the ground running. She expertly provided scientific guidance, reviewed scientific copy for accuracy and offered strategic direction to several important cardiology brands and the copy / account professionals that work on these brands day-to-day. These brand teams functioned in a very fast-paced environment and Frieda effortlessly adapted to the teams’ pace. Not only was Frieda flexible and adaptable, she also adjusted to the ebbs and flow in the work with ease.

Frieda was an incredibly valuable resource for our teams. Her brand teams and I very much enjoyed working with Frieda, noting that she possessed an admirable work ethic, a can-do attitude, and keen scientific expertise. The teams with which she shared her scientific prowess were very appreciative and complaint-free.

I would absolutely hire Frieda again! She is a smart, dependable, strategic, flexible healthcare professional with great ethics and a positive attitude. Along with her scientific prowess, these attributes make her a terrific addition to any team in the medical communications space.”

“Frieda was a 2019-2020 Doximity Op-Med fellow. All the fellows come from medical backgrounds, and most are physicians. All are accepted based on their writing merit. Frieda was the sole pharmacist accepted into the program this year, and from the beginning, she made it a point to represent her profession by writing thought-provoking pieces that would engage our readers.

During our year of partnership, I have watched her grow and tweak her strategy by crafting content that would grab our readers’ attention. She initially pitched me a year’s worth of topics but quickly began reevaluating her topics and delivery style to adapt to our audience’s interests, ensuring that she had a mix of pieces that were timely and evergreen.

For example, her first post only had a few hundred views, but with each article she wrote, I could see a progression in her efforts to capture the attention of our readers by crafting thought-provoking topics. Her most-read article, ‘Why are Pharmacists Considered Monolithic Healthcare Professionals?” was immensely popular, earning nearly 12,000 views, nearly 5 times the average for a Fellow’s piece.

If you’re looking for a writer who is passionate about creating content that informs and engages, I highly recommend you consider Frieda as a chief contender to help you meet your needs.

Editorial Manager at Doximity”

“Competence, professionalism and seriousness about her work were the takeaways from my first meeting with Frieda. She was one of the standouts among the freelancers at a writers’ conference I attended about a year ago, and I made a note to get back to her when I needed good writing on a tough science topic. That opportunity came up recently on an assignment for a university’s alumni magazine. She conducted thorough research in a highly technical area and was somehow able to make the complex science concepts accessible and engaging for a broad readership, including many people who do not have technical backgrounds. I will definitely work with Frieda again and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a writer who can deliver the goods.”

— Eric Addison
CEO of Addison Editorial Services

“Frieda worked extensively with me and two of our senior editors, meticulously updating the drug charts for four 90-page books: Back Pain and Osteoporosis, Lung Disorders, Memory, and Prostate Disorders. The books are purchased by thousands of readers across the U.S. for help in managing chronic conditions. Our editorial staff was greatly impressed with her thoroughness. We hired her again for the 2018 books, this time working on drug charts for diabetes, coronary heart disease, and eye diseases, among others.”

— Sue Byrne, Remedy Health Media/Scientific American

“Frieda Wiley is an outstanding writer/ definitely good at what she does. Frieda developed the slide deck and script for our entire online pharmacology course for advanced nurse practitioner students. Although a challenging subject that covers a lot of material, not only did Frieda quickly identify the most important content to include the slide deck, but she also updated relevant information and supplied us with additional resources to enhance our students’ learning. Our team found Frieda to be professional, reliable, and easy to work with. I highly recommend Frieda and would definitely work with her again.”

— Rita Sedani Pesartic, EdD, Post-Secondary Educator and e-Learning Specialist at West Coast University

“I loved your article in American History, Feb 2017. I wrote a letter to the editor complimenting your article. I think no one in America is aware of the women you featured in your article. I mean, who knew? This info should be shared in some way with every teacher in America — and every family.”

— Subscriber to American History (History Network)

“I’ve worked with Frieda Wiley for the past year, as a writer for the health/advocacy website MedShadow.org. From the start, she ‘got’ the kind of stories we are looking for, and has consistently delivered well-researched, cogently written content, the kind that makes an editor’s work much, much easier. I know I can count on Frieda for great ideas that fit our mission, as well as for her professional, collaborative manner and adherence to deadlines.”

— Denise Schipani, Features Editor, MedShadow.org

“Working with Frieda has been an absolute breeze! Her work ethic, professionalism, and experience are unmatched by any other writer. Frieda is easy to work with and her professional suggestions are always on point. If you are looking for a medical writer and aspire to a seamless experience, I highly recommend Frieda Wiley.”

— Corinne Malanca, United Patients Group

“Not only does Frieda have complex understanding through her academic and professional training, but she is also able to explain medical topics to both patients and the general public in a clear, concise manner, providing our readers with articles that are both interesting and important for their self-care.”
