Dr. Fryer gave me the choice of either an injection or surgery for my trigger finger. I opted for the injection which was done quickly and immediately following my decision. I was advised that if the injection didn't resolve the problem, that I should return. He was just as pleasant as he was 11 years ago when I saw him for a trigger thumb (with injection).
He explained every detail of my surgery during my pre-op visit. He listened to my concerns.

7 weeks after my wrist surgery to repair a torn ligament and I am already gaining more strength and motion that I should. Dr. Fryer is good at what he does in terms of surgery, but in appointments he is a minimalist. If you want information you have to ask questions.
in Morro Bay, CA |
He did my carpal tunnel surgery a few years ago on both wrists. They healed perfectly and they are 100% better. I do heavy work with my hands daily and my arms have never had any pain or problems. Perfect surgery and full recovery back to 100%. His style is a bit gruff but I prefer straight talk from my doctor as opposed to sugar coated. He is very professional.
