Dr. Frac has been our doctor of choice for 23 years with 3 children. He is the absolute best. We have recommended lots of friends and family who all love him as much as we do. He is caring and smart.
Dr. Frac is simply the best in every possible way.
Dr. Frac has a wonderful bedside manner with both myself as a parent and with my child. He is relaxed, takes his time to make sure our questions our answered, and keeps my daughter calm during the exam.
Dr. Frac is AMAZING. He's very good with my kids.
He is kind and funny! He is always on time. He takes his time with us as well.
we love Dr. Frac.
We absolutely adore Dr. Frac. He has cared for our oldest daughter for the last five years. It was a no brainer to pick him as our second daughter's doctor. Dr. Frac is so thoughtful, patient, kind and knowledgeable. He has what my husband and I like to call "an old school approach" to children's care, meaning he's not quick to throw medicine at the problem or order multiple tests. He's of course very knowledgeable with current medical resources. He gives you confidence as a parent that your child will be okay.
CCP Waterdam has consistently provided excellent care to my child for the last 10 + years. Dr. Frac is a consummate professional. My son looks forward to seeing him for vsitis. He is so great with kids of all ages.

Dr. Frac is an awesome doctor!
Dr. Frac is an excellent care provider and I have both of my boy's 13 & 16 see him. He makes them feel comfortable, engages with them, talks about the awkwardness of those teenage years and puberty. He has always been age appropriate since they were babies to teenagers. My boys enjoy going to see him and are never scared to go to the doctor's. He seems to be a never-ending fountain of patience, kindness and thoughtfulness.

I always have a great experience with Dr Frac always try to see him when possible. I thinks he's a wonderful doctor and I know soon I will have to start seeing another doctor just no ready to yet.
Dr. Frac makes a child's visit an easy experience with his genuine, comical ways. He's also appreciated by parents because he takes time to answer questions/concerns through knowledge and experience. His confidence in examining a child is a great comfort with the appointment. It is one of the many reasons that we changed pediatricians and left the last practice. And I am glad that we did! I am happy that Dr. Frac is on call for my children, thank you.

They're always friendly and kind with my son.
Excellent. Dr. Frac is light hearted, and a very good communicator with my son and his needs. His sense of humor puts all at ease. I have wanted Dr. Frac to be his doctor since birth because of his high recommendations from his colleagues and patients. For reasons, he has only recently been able to see him, and I am very happy to finally have him as a pediatrician for my son. His is everybody's favorite uncle type of person who is very knowledgeable with his profession and care of others.
I loved this Dr. he is there for my granddaughters problems and needs.
Dr. Frac was covering for Dr. Reilly today as Dr. Reilly had a family emergency. He did an amazing job and was personable, compassionate and caring. During the time that he spent with us, you would've never known that the office had heavy hearts for Dr. Reilly and was working so hard to provide quality care for all patients. Dr. Frac is the ultimate professional and relates well to patients and parents.
Dr Frac listens to his patients' concerns and provides helpful solutions to their problems.
we love Dr Frac and though we must be patient to get an appointment because he is popular, it's worth it!
Dr Frac is the best! We all love him!

Our first doctor's visit could have been scary and intimidating but with the care from the staff, nurses, and doctors, we had the best possible first visit! the nurses took action when we needed help and gave us proper respectful privacy when we needed to nurse. our questions were answered with confidence and gave us confidence as new parents. Dr. Frac was respectful, understanding, and patient with us as new parents. His confidence and support, gave us confidence.
Dr. Frac is the best! I love being able to have him as my daughter's main pediatrician. He is kind, gentle with her, and super informative. Really easy to talk to, and always gives me great info and advice. Overall great doctor, and my daughter likes him too.
Dr Frac is just excellent. My 3 year old really wanted him to also give her doll a check up and he happily did it. Checking the doll's heart and ears to make sure she was okay. My daughter was talking about it for the rest of the day. The nurse also took the doll's temperature and said she was doing great. Talk about catering to the patient. Just wonderful of both of them to care!

My kids were so pleased with the doctor! They said Dr. Frac was the funniest and nicest doctor ever.
We took my three day old son for a weight check and initial exam. Dr Frac was incredibly understanding of our situation and worked with us to develop a plan that suited our needs. He encouraged supplementing with formula, which has been a significant event for our family - helping my son, as well as my own health. it was reassuring to know he supported that and was there for questions.

Dr. Frac is absolutely wonderful. Both of my children have seen him and like him. I fully intend to bring both of my children back to him for any further health care needs. Dr. Frac listens and understands my concerns and point of view and my knowledge about my child. He takes the time to explain his point of view and reasoning behind any treatment, as well as explaining answers to any questions I have. He's very personable and friendly with the kids. He knows how to interact with them to make them feel more comfortable and involved in the visit. I feel as if he truly cares about the well being of the children he sees. Most importantly though I feel is that he takes the time to talk and listen and understand each individual case. He's very experienced and knowledgeable, all around great doctor.
