Dr Frim is amazing!!! 2 years and 8 Drs later we found the right Dr. Wait time can be long but very worth it! My son had Chari surgery after multiple Drs said he didn't need it and I'm happy to say my son has been headache free for almost a full year! Dr Frim is kind,he takes his time and only...more

This so called surgeon and his minions at Mass General Hospital ruined my back with their so called laminectomy. I do not recommend this guy to my worst enemy. Thank goodness later I found real surgeons to fix his horrible work on my lower back. He's just a hack!!
