      Tried to make an appointment for my painful hand but the office personnel were not very friendly or accommodating so I got another appt with another orthopedic specialist. There is no excuse for rude office personnel!!

      Dr. Frankel is the most awesome hand and wrist doctor in Arizona. He treated my daughter"s broken wrist. I was very impressed by his caring attitude and it seemed that surgery was his last resort, he was very conservative and into trying to heal the bone. He fixed her broken wrist in 3 months and now it's perfect. I would highly recommend Dr. Frankel.

      Wasn't a big fan, seemed eager to get you into more appointments and into surgery, and to up charge you for anything possible. I've had plenty of surgeries before and got great vibes off all my doctors, wasn't feeing him, but I needed to get my wrist taken care of ASAP. He doesn't understand or realize how people manage pain, so if you don't handle pain well, do NOT go to him. Ive never had a surgeon allow me to stay in pain or anxiety like him

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
