AWFUL! My daughter needs gum surgery and Dr Fraziero was referred.

I was in excruciating pain with a wisdom tooth that my regular dentist wasn't able to manage, so he referred me to Dr. Fraziero. He was able to not only fit me in to put me out for the extraction, but had me in the office in under a half hour, though I'd been told that I might have to wait awhile...more
