    Dr. Frisella is extremely knowledgeable, capable, proficient and effective. He made my surgery a priority and from that point on kept us very informed and answered all our questions (I'm an engineer so I have a lot of questions). He was consistently open, honest and positive through the entire year-long recovery process. I have resumed all my activities with no limitations.

    dr. frisella was rushed, appeared put-off, and was unwilling to investigate anything once it was determined there was no need for surgery. his lack of interest was evident 10 seconds into the 2 minutes he spent with me.
