"Dr. Frenkel was phenomenal treating a friend of mine. She was without any family and I managed her care for her. She had a severe fall, breaking her leg, shoulder, etc. She had diabetes and eventually required dialysis and many vein and artery blockages and bypass, etc. Each time when there was little to no hope, Dr. Frenkel amazed to persist until he found a way to clear even the hopeless blockages. I am sure he kept her living 10 years past the normal time she would have had. He is an incredibly talented and innovative surgeon and a nice easy to communicate surgeon. I highly recommend him."
