Patient Comments (3)
This is a FIVE star establishment! Everyone works together as a team. From fast, friendly check-in, to less than a 10 minute wait, to making sure I am completely comfortable during my exam, Ending in Dr. Frenkel’s consultation, he kindly answered all my questions and clearly explained the test results and the surgical procedure. Dr. Frenkel and his staff helped me in this difficult and scary time. I cannot say enough to properly compliment Dr. Frenkel J

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.
