Verified patient. Long outstanding care after my surgery. He is very straight forward and direct. Speaks with integrity, helps me be proactive in my own care. Also resourceful with education towards my recovery. Highly recommend him.

He is the most experienced Dr at giving Xiaflex injections for Dupuytren's and is very good. He's been doing it since the beginning of the FDA studies, way before the drug was ever approved for other Drs to inject. I've had great experiences working with him.

Please see another surgeon for your needs. He made my condition on my right hand worse.

He has NO bedside manners at all. I would never go back to this doctor ever. He was giving me an injection in my hand and I kinda moved and he told me to set my butt down, which I never stood up!! I hope he leaves the OKC area!! We have much better doctors to choose from than him!!

I called the nurses station to express my concerns I had about some symptoms I was having after wrist surgery. She called Dr. Frazier and he thought he called her back but instead called me the patient...he was completely disrespectful, cursed at me/about me, disregarded any medical concerns I had...more
