Dr. Frisella is an excellent surgeon, awfully nice and caring person. He operated on my elbow and taking a good care of me. Before surgery, he explained everything and made me comfortable to go through the surgery. I felt I am in very good hands.

Dr Frisella provided excellent surgical repair of my completely torn rotator cuff. He has excellent “bed side manner”, explains medical conditions in laymen’s language, and puts you completely at ease. I had questions about my MRI and he took the time to show me the images and explain what we were seeing. Thanks Dr. Frisella for giving me my arm back so I can play golf again!

Very kind and explained things so well. I had surgery on my shoulder and it turned out great! I can now hold my grandchildren with no pain. I would have Dr. Frisella do surgery for me again if I ever had the need. He is a very good Dr. and person.

I'm 64 years older and my muscles in my arm were destroyed. He repaired my entire arm and now I'm back to working out and feeling better than ever. He made me feel comfortable and took great care of me during and after surgery. I'd recommend him to anyone and everyone.

From the moment I met Dr. Frisella, I knew I would be in good hands with my shoulder injury. He has a very gentle, pleasant manner and puts you at ease immediately. He explains the issues very thoroughly, does not jump to surgery but offers other options, if possible, and he is very thorough. I ended up needing shoulder surgery and again, he made the experience as comfortable as possible. Dr. Frisella is a master at his craft and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing surgery.

I Shredded my rotator cuff rock climbing in mid December 2018. Within a few days I had an MRI and then a diagnoses from Dr. Frisella. With surgery being the only option for a complete recovery he answered every question and concern I had, assuring me I would be back to where I was before the surgery. It’s now a month after the procedure and the progress of my shoulder is a testament to his skills. I have 90% range of motion on both the physical therapist test. Thank you Dr Frisella.

Unfortunately I was in an auto accident that, amoung the life threatening issues, broke my right arm/elbow. After two surgeries from the ER doc I found that the elbow had froze and I was unable to use the arm. My wife researched and we ended up meeting with Dr. Frisella which redirected where my life was heading. After several surges to correct the arm in stages, I now have full normal use of the arm and I couldn't be happier. He took the time to make it RIGHT. Thank you sir!

Dr. Frisella did a great job on both of my elbow operations. Both of the operations are barely visible. Pre and post surgery hospitality was fantastic, along with the check ups. There was very minimual wait time in the office and the staff was great. I highly recommend!

Dr. Frisella is way too short, Looks way too young, and (according to my wife), is way too good looking to be as good a surgeon as he is. His manner is very upbeat and confident. He explains very clearly what he can and cannot do. I appreciate that kind of approach from a doctor. From the first time I talked with him I had the utmost confidence in him. Except for a couple anxious moments in pre-op, (until he explained to me "exactly why" he was wearing muck boots), he had me totally at ease.

Dr. Frisella is AWESOME. He is so understanding, explained every thing he did in detailed. Explained to me and my wife on the MRI, what was what. After my surgery he called to see how I was doing. I would HIGHLY recommend him.

On 12/17/2017, Dr. Frisella preformed reconstruction surgery to my right shoulder for a injury that other doctors said could not be repaired. Five days after my surgery by Dr. Frisella I had not pain in my shoulder and no longer needed medication. The swelling went down in my shoulder after two weeks and after five weeks I began to regain movement and use of my right arm again. At six weeks I am beginning physical Therapy. I can't thank Dr. Frisella enough for what he has done for me.

If I would have known how much better my shoulder would feel after surgery I would have done it years ago. Dr Frisella did a wonderful job on my shoulder and I would recommend him to anyone.
