I cannot thank Dr. Frenkel and his staff enough. He performed an extremely complicated surgery; yet I was back on my feet within a few weeks! Thank you Dr. Frenkel.

Dr. Frenkel was fantastic. He took time to answer all of my questions, and he listened to me. I have not had a surgical procedure in 37 years, and my anxiety was extreme. He took the extra time needed to put me at ease. I really appreciate him and his staff.
