The doctor is top notch! The best from the office to the operating room to the bed side you could not ask for better care and a greta down to earth person too!!!
Garnet Valley, PA |
I had a parathyroidectomy performed by Dr. Fraker. During my initial consultation, I immediately recognized how fortunate I was to have access to such an experienced, highly skilled and “world renowned” surgeon. I felt “safe” under his care and confident that I would have a positive outcome. He is very focused, has great bedside manner and is respectful. My recovery was uneventful. The level of care at the Perelman Surg Ctr by the anesthesiologist, surgeon and nurses exceeded my expectations.

Ignore his bed side manner, he is an extremely talented, skilled and a 'think tank' type guy. You can tell by the way he talks that he doesn't have the answer, but he has the very last single detail of that answer and simply can't get it out fast enough. His job is opening you up and fixing something and honestly, there isn't a single picture my wife found on the internet that looked better than hers. He took extra special time and care marking all the areas and natural creases, the incision is

Dr. Fraker is an outstanding surgeon. I had no problems following y surgery. Thyroid removal was skillfully done and healing was exactly as he described. No visible scar.
