My daughter Sophia and I adore Dr. Frino! I am thrilled to have him in charge of my daughter's care. Wake Forest is very lucky to have him. I have been an RN for 16 years, and his manner with both children and adults is the best I have ever witnessed.

7/26/2016

Dr. Frino was suggested to us by my Orthopedic Surgeon in Greensboro, as Morgan was not nearly as comfortable as the specialist she saw at Duke. What started as a consultation, has turned into a change of Surgeon for us! Dr. Frino and Sybil are the best team possible.

7/11/2016

Dr. Frino's countenance (kind, maintained eye contact), body language/posture (drawing close to my daughter, getting down on her level), and verbal communication (speaking slowly, clearly, softly, and in easy-to-understand language) were all a vast improvement from our previous experience with previous doctor. Also, kudos to Dr. Frino's resident who exhibited expertise and professionalism.

6/27/2016
