First off, the staff was very nice even though I was almost 10 minutes late. (Highway 100 is a nightmare right now) I was taken into a decent looking room (not perfect, but I'm very picky) and Dr. Frake came in promptly. He took the time to explain everything and was more than kind in his helpful replies to my questions. He was very knowledgeable, and I felt in capable hands. I can highly recommend Dr. Frake.

I had seen Dr Frake for a cyst in my thyroid in February and March 2015. We had determined due to the size that it needed to come out. I could not have been more pleased with the experience throughout the whole process. Dr Frake and his staff make you feel at ease and talk you through every step withouut talking over your head. Surgery went great and the follow up went great as well. I highly recommend if you like to be put at ease and feel safe with his surgical experience. Thank you Dr Frake!

I saw Dr. Frake yesterday as part of my MOHS procedure, he was to close the MOHS surgery area on my nose. He evaluated my wound and informed me that my wound required a skin graft to be taken from in front of my ear. He handled my anxiety in a highly comforting manner, along with the nurse, Stephanie. He was efficient and confident and kept my attention with great conversation! I appreciate Dr. Frake's expertise, along with Stephanie's.
