Dr. Frankhouse did 2 surgeries on a family member after most of the colon had been removed due to cancer at 46. Listen to your body people - it talks to you all the time. Due to Dr. Frankhouse's expertise the family member leads a normal, very active life. Dr. Frankhouse's expertise is surpassed by none and his kindness matches. We are thankful for Dr. Frankhouse.

I put my life and health in Dr. Frankhouse's experience and expertise. It was trust well placed. I highly recommend him to anyone with colorectal issues requiring surgery. Additionally, he is patient oriented and I felt very comfortable discussing my health issues with him.

This man literally saved my life. I went into the hospital with a very rare condition, was taken seriously (after a few shenanigans with the ER team), but Dr Frankhouse was honest, upfront, conservative and thorough in treating my condition. I felt that he genuinely cared about my survival and positive outcomes. Also - he's so very friendly it made it not as bad as it could have been!

Fabulous doctor. I was totally stressed with my situation and had been given some ( not helpful ) advice for several years prior to seeing Dr Frankhouse. He did my surgery April 2015. I am now normal I am so thankful. I would recommend him to anyone with out hesitation.
