      Outstanding! I was unsure what to expect but Dr. Frisella and his staff have been excellent. Dr. Frisella is extremely talented and his skill has been evident though the quick recovery I have experienced. He took the time to explain what was wrong, what my options were and what to expect with treatment. Any and all questions I had were answered quickly and thoroughly. I highly recommend Advanced Bone and Joint, especially Dr. Frisella.

      Dr. Frisella is extremely knowledgeable, capable, proficient and effective. He made my surgery a priority and from that point on kept us very informed and answered all our questions (I'm an engineer so I have a lot of questions). He was consistently open, honest and positive through the entire year-long recovery process. I have resumed all my activities with no limitations.

      Great surgeon. I've had two successful surgeries in the last three months. Honest with great bedside manner.
      St Peters, MO |
      dr. frisella was rushed, appeared put-off, and was unwilling to investigate anything once it was determined there was no need for surgery. his lack of interest was evident 10 seconds into the 2 minutes he spent with me.
