Review for Dr. Whitlow

Just like the title says, Dr. Fraiser is fast, friendly, and always on time. When I'm having acute pain, his nurse always tries to squeeze me in and usually can find a time that works. Dr. Fraiser has been very helpful and I've referred him to several friends who need treatment.
