I seen Dr Frisch after months of looking for a Dr to do my hip replacement and had my hip replaced 5 days later. I wish I would of found this Dr months ago. He is truly a godsend. Him and his staff answered all my questions in a timely matter and were a pleasure to work with. Do not hesitate to call this Dr at all.

I was refered to Dr Frisch by my primary for hip pain. On my first visit an xray was taken right there and then showing that a hip replacement was needed. He explained the procedure in layman terms with props. I decided to go ahead with the surgery which occured 6 weeks ago and I will state the man is amazingly gifted. I have minimal scarring and I am almost pain free. I am riding my bike and I am able to walk without having to use every availale object as a crutch. Thank you for being a dedicated and caring orthoman.
