Dr. Fraterelli has an aire of confidence about him that exudes when you meet him. He will not beat around the bush to tell you what the situation is, but instead he will explain things that the normal person could understand. He will take the time to explain things to you, with a graceful attitude. His bedside manner is great and he will go out of his way to take care of things for you. You become the only thing that he has to do when you see him.
