    Dr. Frost is definitely one of my favorite doctors. He is very knowledgeable and nice. I am very lucky to have found him. I have never waited for more than 10 or 15 minutes and the people working for him are very sweet. I would recommend him to anyone.

    On January 20, 2016, I had to undergo melanoma surgery at Dr. Frost clinic in Union, NJ. I was quite scared that such ugly thing happened to me. However, Dr. Frost calmed me down with his very positive and optimistic attitude. He described in details what is necessary and what outcome of this procedure can be. I knew there is no other choice and decided to go ahead with surgery. He did skin grafting job very gently and now the remaining scar is healing perfectly well. I realize, of course

    I first met Dr. Frost in the Emergency Room. He performed emergency surgery on me for a ruptured spleen. He was very compassionate and extremely competent. I believe he saved my life by acting quickly. Thank you.
