      I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at age 56. It was discovered by my primary MD at my physical. The primary MD prescribed a number of medications. I was allergic to all of them. I knew I needed a specialist. Enter Dr. Frachetti a calm experienced professional who knew right away what medications would work. Her office staff is also great. She took care of me and everything is under control.

      I see Dr. Frachetti for a diabetic condition. Office, PA, and doctor all work together to provide the best experience I've had.

      Refused to honor a referral from my PMD which they requested, then claimed my appt was cancelled because bloodwork was inconclusive for a suspected medical condition (life threatening incidentally). Severe symptoms, desperate for answers, and 5 mos. wait for appt. Then they cancelled the appt after I took the time to have all of my medical records transferred, without ever talking to me. If I didn't have proof of a problem they have no time for me, without ever discussing my symptoms? This is where I seriously wonder about google reviews, because when the behavior of an allegedly professional competent doctor is such, then the reviews simply don't square. But then, if you're reading this, I might have saved you some precious time, and maybe even your life, because a bad doctor is a nail in the coffin, and when they can't even be bothered to meet with you, or to properly review your records and symptoms, it would be impossible for them to thoroughly evaluate anything; obviously.

      Dr. Frachetti is my fifth endocrinologist in 20+ years of being a Type-1 diabetic on insulin pump. She had me switch to a different pump which I like fine. When I've offered a viewpoint about what I've learned or asked questions, she often shuts me down. This isn't what I need or want. I haven't been back to her in over a year since the office visits have left me stressed out and feeling belittled. She was recommended highly, and I hope she focuses on growing her skills as a caregiver.

      Do not go to her. She did nothing for my problems and didn't really listen to what I have going on and just brushed me off. Had to pay $150 for nothing.

      Dr. Frachetti is AMAZING! anyone who has a problem with her or her office just likes to complain and troll their docs. I have worked with many physicians and she is by far the best! It is a new practice location for her so I was able to establish care quickly and smoothly with no long wait. I did have to push my PMDs office to send records. I HIGHLY recommend her.

      Jumped to conclusions without having all my records and tried to send me to an (expensive) referral without having any legitimate reason to do so. Also wouldn't give bloodwork results over the phone, insisted on another office visit. Seemed like a money grab, understandable for a small practice but still. Not impressed.

      Two visits and said she did everything should could, go back to your PMD. Didn't listen to my history and PMD said that she was rude too and won't refer her anymore to their patients. Also talked about other patients care in front of me with office staff.

      I have been to five endocrinologists in the past year and a half and Dr. Frachetti was by far the best. Her office staff was beyond friendly and I was able to get an appointment fairly quickly. I had to wait about a half hour to have her come into the room but once she did I understood why. She sat down and talked to me, she explained things, and she listened. That was the first appointment I left since my thyroidectomy that I felt relieved and that progress had been made. I HIGHLY suggest her!
