    Smart, kind, patient, would never consider going to anyone else if ever needed what he's done for my husband is just beyond amazing. The staff at his office are a wonderful caring group.

    Dr. Fragomen has exceeded all expectations with respect to the care of our granddaughter, Eleanor. He saw her on short notice for the first appointment, scheduled her surgery shortly thereafter, and has been a warm, positive, unhurried presence at all appointments.

    Dr. Fragomen gave me my life back. I suffered thru 2 failed surgeries w/ another surgeon - thought hope was lost. I could no longer care for my small children. Now, 3 months post-op, & I am happy, hopeful, and pain free. Dr. Fragomen is the most personable understanding surgeon I've had, and he certainly explains things in ways I could understand. The office staff, nurse, and supportive surgeons treated me wonderfully. I love that he sees patients in uniondale office as well.

    Great. He saved my leg from amputation!
    in Albany, NY |
    I spent 2 years walking on a broken leg, never healed started bowing causing significant pain. No doc. would touch my leg due to the type of accident/injury and potential infection. We made an appointment and on my 55th birthday we heard the words Of course we can fix the issue and you should recover 100%. He was clear, concise, straightforward, compassionate and After 6 grueling months I am back, Active and happy. My family and I are thankful for the Doc. his office staff - EXCELLENT!!!!
