Dr. Fras is friendly and professional. She took a full history and did an exam. She has worked with me to find relief for my pain. As my health changes, she tries to find different procedures. She is an expert in her field and she still is very approachable.

I was so against taking the drug Lyrica, but she basically shoved it down my throat & told me to take it before I was prescribed anything else, I told her my sister killed her self while on it, she responded by saying, not all people react the same to medications, so I had the script filled, I took it for 11 days I couldn't function at all, drive, walk etc. I have a fused spine, no history of addiction & I was treated like my opinion didn't count, I see why she's rated a 2 ??

Been battling with chronic back pain for years when I went into see Dr. Fras. Had a MRI in hand of the many issues concerning my back. After several visits and injections she sent me on my way with a prescription for an antidepressant. I don't know if that makes sense to anybody else but you won't be seeing me over at Duke pain medicine anymore. Thank you Dr. FRAS
