Dr. Frissora is a serious, conscientious, and skilled surgeon. I never felt rushed or demeaned by him or his team. His work proved successful, my follow-ups were thorough without long waiting times. He was always available for questions throughout my rehab. I trust him.

No denying that he is a decent skilled surgeon, sadly extremely poor bedside manner, so much so, I refused to do follow up care with this horrible man. I had the misfortune of encountering this man in the ER under the worst of circumstances, he went out of his way to aggravate and upset myself & family member, making blood pressure and nerves worse right before going under anesthesia. Post-Op I found him to be cold, callous and extremely berating and insulting. Hosp. admin. sent me a survey.
