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.
in St. Charles, MO |
Dr. Frisella performed an AC resection on my shoulder and I had a great result. He can articulate complex medical procedures in laymen's terms which put me at ease.
Lake Saint Louis, MO |
Dr. Frisella has always been friendly, pleasant and helpful. Never makes me feel unimportant or that my issues are not worth addressing.
in St Louis, MO |
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.
in St Charles, MO |
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.

After surgery my shoulder feels as good as new With the great job Dr Frisella did and physical therapy I feel I'm back to normal Thank you again !!
in St. Peters, MO |
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.
I take this comment seriously and regret that I appeared rushed and put off. I try to listen to every patient's concerns and perspective and clearly, on the day you visited, I failed. I offer you my sincere apology.
