Seems like he hates his job

Arrogant. Actually said to me "patients tell me symptoms and what happened, what I hear is blah blah blah inflammation". Also actually said "this is orthopaedics. No one's dying here."

Outstanding

Doctor Fraipont is the best! He performed my knee surgery and I haven't had a problem since. No lingering pain, not a lot of down time and tiny incisions. I definitely recommend him. Yes, the staff is a little annoying and the wait time is a little too long but the Doctor is fantastic!!!
