Dr. Frino is a delightful person and I am thrilled that my daughter was referred to him. His manner with both adults and children is the best I have ever witnessed in a doctor. WFUBMC is lucky to have him.
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.
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.

Dr. Frino is an exceptional physician! My son has CP, he overlooks his physical inabilities and sees him for the person he is! He truly always has his best interest (and parents) at heart when making decisions.
