my daughter usually takes awhile before she opens up to them and she took tonDr. Frac right away which surprised me. he was very warm and had a very caring attitude.
Dr Frac is a great pedestrian and we consider ourselves blessed that he's our girls doctor.
Dr. Frac has been amazing with our daughter! He is always patient and willing to answer each and every question I have, and as a first time mom this is exactly what I was looking for. I switched pediatricians because my previous pediatrician made me feel rushed and a nuisance for asking questions. Dr.Frac makes you feel comfortable and takes his time at every appointment. I couldn't be happier with Dr.Frac and his true compassion for our child.
Dr. Frac was so nice! We don't normally see him when we visit, but he gave my daughter a thorough exam, made us laugh, and seemed to genuinely care about making her feel better. Thanks so much!

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.
