    Dr. Frankhauser at UTMB took care of my father during a vascular emergency. He was excellent, caring, professional and reassuring. We felt in great hands under his care. His team of residents and nurses took great care of my father and our family. I hope my father doesnt need anymore surgery but if he does Dr. Frankhauser will be the doctor we turn to.
