Dr. Marc S Frager has the following 3 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Nuclear Medicine
Nuclear medicine specialists are doctors who have extensive training in the use of nuclear substances, like radiation, to diagnose and treat certain illnesses.
These specialists perform diagnostic tests in which a small amount of a radioactive substance is injected into a vein, inhaled or taken orally by the patient. The radioactive substance then enables the nuclear medicine specialist to use a scanner to detect the radiation level in the part of the body being examined in order to create an image of it with a computer. The images tell the physician whether there are abnormal changes in metabolism which indicate whether a disease or injury is present. These tests are often used to detect cancer.
In addition to detecting cancer, substances like radioactive iodine can be either injected into the blood stream or taken orally to fight cancer and other diseases. After being ingested, the substance is absorbed by the thyroid gland and abnormal thyroid tissues are destroyed.

Dr. Frager took great interest in my care and helped me resolve issues that I had been having for years. He listened to my concerns and his treatment solution is structured to help me prevent future issues as well. If you are looking for an experienced endocrinologist who will get it right the first time, go see Dr. Frager!
Doctor did not examine me properly, for example, like did not look at my foot or eyes which is common procedure for diabetic evaluation even he knew that I was a new patient He did not ask any questions, like my health history or who was my previous doctor, etc.. Just suggested to increase a dosage of medication and to loose weight. For this doctor I was nobody. He spent very little time with me. His stuff was really rude.
