Mistake to see

I have very complicated tibial situation after bad fracture and infection situation. I came to see dr Fragomen on behalf of reconstruction of tibial plateau with knee replacement as well. I was waiting over 2.5 hrs in his waiting room, I was asking tons of not necessary questions by very busy nurse who pretty often ran out of my exam room for 20 or more min, then I was asked questions by young fellow doc who obviously barely has any experience. After 40 min sitting in the exam room I finally met with doctor. He spent max 15 min with me and only because I insisted he answered my questions and heard my concerns. I was partially successfull in my approach. He did not pay attention to serious questions I asked, or just whispered something to his fellow assistant. He made one suggestion and left the exam room saying that a front desk girl gives me names of two knee replacement surgeons. Also he recommended to get new ct-scan. It was it. 3 hrs driving to see him, 3 hrs waiting, 15 min apt., 4 hrs driving back. He charged 400$ since he does not accept Cigna, and over 1000$ for 2 xRs done at the end of the floor.

My surgeries have been difficult and not yet a success, but I would still give Dr. F 5 stars because of the way he has worked with me. He has stayed curious and empathetic and responsive over the course of a year of surgeries and treatment. He has been willing to always explore more or look at new variables if a pain has persisted or worsened. I came in with a complex case of mild displasia, femoral anteversion, tibial torsion and pain in my foot and hip that slowly took me from a Division 1 athlete to someone who didn't even want to attend social events because of pain standing and walking. I underwent tib/fib derotation with a fixator and he was there every step of the way to answer questions. He Himself would often reply to emails within the same day, and he offered sincere encouragement and understanding that this was a really tough and painful experience. I'm not better yet, but with a Doctor like Dr. Fragomen, I have hope. I can't tell you how many other doctors gave up or dismissed my symptoms as soon as their treatment plan didn't go as expected. He is amazing and has also been instrumental in diagnosing other conditions. He referred me to the right specialist for a shoulder injury that others couldn't diagnose for years. He goes above and beyond, it is really really appreciated. The wait time at his office is well worth it.

A truly gifted surgeon, who explains in detail what he will surgically do. He is friendly and spends a good amount of time explaining procedures. He helped me with a leg fusion and limb lengthrning to recover full use of my leg after it was cruhed in an auto accident. Highly recommended.
