I was a patient for ~11/2 yrs . I went so long, thinking they could see that the RX the gave me didn't touch my pain.

Dr. Frawirth is a compassionate and knowledgeable doctor. He truely cares about every patient , treating his patients as if they were his family. Sr. Frawirth educates his patients not only with their medical issues and he educates each on the possible side effects and the dangers of opiates. One person dies every 18 minutes due to over dose. His staff are great. They too treat all as their family. If you're looking for a dr to just hand out pills, don't waste Dr. Frawirths time or hisknowledge

The office staff are rude & judge you walking in the door. They assume you're a drug addict in the door & are so unfriendly. The wait times are a joke, & the clinic is pretty much ran by his PA. Once he does the initial evaluation you will never see him again. All your appointments afterwards will be done by his PA. He & his office staff are very unprofessional with the exception of his PA. His office also is run down & dingy looking, his equipment is dilapidated & needs to be overhauled.

Dr. Frawirth is a compassionate and a very knowledgeable doctor in his field of medicine. I highly recommend him to those who live with chronic pain and also to those who have rare diseases who other drs have given up on. Dr. Frawirth treats you as a human being, taking all the time needed.

Dr. F. is not only an excellent doctor, but he treats you like a person, not a number. He cares for his patients, and explains everything and answers all questions you have. He will show you any MRI's, x-rays, etc., showing you where the problem is. I have recommended him to several people and will continue to do so. I drive one hour each way to see Dr. F., because I put my total trust in him.
