I don't like to be dramatic but this lack of follow up through phone calls after surgery here was ridiculous. NO phone calls were made even though I was in great pain. Surgery was a debacle. Horrible surgery, horrible follow up and terrible life due to lack of medical skills. You should be ashamed of yourself.

With great confidence I would NEVER recommend Dr. Fronza - he is NOT a superb surgeon. He is extremely dumb. He has no medical assistant who can help answer questions after surgery nor does he follow up with a phone call to see how you are doing. I live in a lifetime of pain because of his bad surgery.

Dr. Fronza is simply the Best!! I had suffered with severe stomach pains for years that required hospitalization. I had also been misdiagnosed until I was seen by Dr. Fronza who made the correct diagnosis of MALS. After years on being unable to eat without pain his diagnosis along with surgery has changed my life!! Thank you Dr. Jeffrey Fronza for your kindness and expertise. You are Simply The Best!!!

With great confidence I highly recommend Dr. Fronza - superb surgeon. We met only once several months prior to an urgent request for help. His response was immediate for someone who required hiatal hernia surgery - most impressive. He is extremely knowledgeable, thoroughly explains & is very professional with a genuine caring manner. He & entire team were present during hospital stay & provided excellent care/followup. He goes above & beyond & remains accessible - so rare. I am forever grateful.

Dr. Fronza is very easy to talk with and always upbeat. With a complex medical history, I need a surgeon that was innovative and willing to collaborate with the rest of my medical team. Dr Fronza went above and beyond! I cannot thank him enough for improving a situation that I had been told was hopeless!

Dr. Fronza performed my Cholecystectomy one year ago, and I've never felt better. His bedside manner was incredible. He eased my fears and never doubted that I was in pain. He communicated with me every step of the way, even when I had small, panicked questions. He values family and explained my entire procedure to my husband. He accurately described what recovery would be like and continues to answer questions I have. He is an excellent listener and explains the procedure with patience & care.

Dr. Fronza went above and beyond ensuring I was well-informed, comfortable with my surgery, and truly made me feel at ease and confident in my procedure and outcome. My recovery process was seamless and Dr. Fronza was extremely responsive and present when and if I reached out to him with questions. I am so very thankful for his professionalism and talent as a surgeon, my overall quality of life has improved as a result of Dr. Fronza's great work.

Dr. Fronza was terrific, not only with my appendectomy and care afterwards, but also in his interactions with my wife and daughter. He personally called my wife to let her know how I came through the surgery since it was performed in the middle of the night. He is extremely professional, and yet very down-to-earth as evidenced by introducing himself simply as "Jeff" to both my wife and daughter. A terrific person also with a good sense of humor!

I could not have asked for a more generous surgeon and doctor. Dr. Fronza has an outstanding "bedside manner" and really helps put you at ease. On my initial visit he helped both me and my wife understand how he would perform my procedure (gall bladder removal) and what he recovery would look like. Even in this serious conversation he was able to bring in a little levity to help lighten the mood. Follow up was outstanding as well and he really is a patient's advocate. Procedure was a success!

I had a very successful Sleeve Gastrectomy with Dr. Fronza 10 weeks ago. The procedure was very successful, beyond my highest expectations. The surgery itself went very smoothly, and the recovery was quick. Dr. Fronza is very responsive to my communications and highly informative. Every interaction with him is a positive one. I also have a high opinion of the other professionals who work with him. I already have recommended him to friends and will continue to do so.

i was introduced to Dr. Fronza due to a diagnosis gallstones. he confirmed the read and operated to remove my gallbladder thru a minimally invasive procedure. he was delayed by the operation before mine but stopped to confirm the operation and allay any concerns i might have due to the late hour and the operation in general. his bedside manner is outstanding. between my operation and final release i encountered another illness and found his concern to be as profound about it.

Dr Fronza was very thorough and considerate in explaining all the ins and outs of the surgery and process. He was very helpful with coordinating between other healthcare professionals to get me pointed in the directions I needed to complete the process. The procedure went well and there were no complications. I was very glad to have chosen him for this transformation into a healthier me. He proved to be a knowledgeable and experienced resource for this surgery,

I had a gastric sleeve done w/ Dr. Fronza and the whole process was the best year to date for me. From the initial consult, to the surgery and all the follow ups, Dr. Fronza and Cindy have been amazing. Over a year later, I needed to have emergency removal of my gallbladder; I was at another hospital and was concerned about their service. I called Dr. Fronza who immediately put in a request to have me transferred, called repeatedly to check on me and made after hours calls until I was moved.
