I was referred to Dr. Fras from someone else, I believe that first impressions are lasting. My first appointment I had to wait over an hour and the second time over an hour plus, and he really seem not to really care that much. I suggest that when you go pack lunch, crossword puzzel,water,it really kinda makes you feel bad, I wouldnt recomend him, thats my take on

Being a nurse I have had the opportunity to witness many different physicians in my career. Dr. Fras stands out among the crowd. I trusted him completely, he performed a spinal fusion procedure on me and I would highly recommend him to anyone who would need his services. He went above and beyond and treated both my husband and myself with respect and great care. Hopefully no one I know needs this surgery but if they do I would without a doubt recommend Dr. Fras. He is kind and caring.

I would definitely recommend Dr Fras! He is kind and thorough. He explains your options as far as what treatments would work best for a normal lifestyle before jumping in to surgery. I work in the medical field and recommend Dr. Fras for his bedside manor and surgical expertise!

Dr. Fras is strictly interested in surgical patient. In other words, when he deemed that I am not a surgical candidate based on my MRI, he did not explain the MRI findings to me and sent me back to my anesthesiologist. In addition, he lacks strong medical knowledge. The sense that I got during my visits with him is that his only solution to a problem that he could fix is surgery. He either is not aware of other treatment for back injuries or he does not find the empathy and professional interest in counseling patient. Also, be aware that at Dr. Fras' office in Broomall, his staff booked multiple patients at the same time. I had to wait over an hour and 30 minutes to see him.

Dr. Fras is a stone cold stud! He's a honest straightforward guy, incredibly methodical, and seems to actually care. I'm actually convinced he does. Unfortunately I've had a great number of surgeries and am so glad I was introduced to Dr. Fras. He saved my life, saved my marriage, and has me up and around again with my children.Thank you Dr. Fras you are truly one of the good guys!

Dr. Fras never looked at me,reviewed my films,and said everthing was fine. I received a second opinion after I could not walk nor use my legs. I need to have an operation if I want to go places other than my bed.
