Dr. Frino is excellent. we saw him when Natalie was an infant and he was so knowledgeable about her condition. I am a nurse and I reserve high praise for the best of the best. Dr. Frino is among the best of the best!
everyone took their time with savannah & answered ALL of her questions
love Dr. Frino. would recommend him to everyone
Dr. Freno is very good with our son. He takes time to listen to all of us and gives very clear answers and directions.
*Dr. Frino is absolutely wonderful. He is so kind, knowledgeable, caring and amazing with children. A true asset to the Baptist team. He is everything one would want in a physician caring for your child.
Dr Frino made me feel the most at ease at the Dr's in a while. And, he listened to me and had a good sense of humor (that matched mine) during this difficult time.
Very good visit. Great office and doctor!
I was truly grateful to have received outstanding care for my son from provider/ nurses
great experience and always have been for years
dr. frino talked to Haley and asked appropriate questions regarding her health and physical activity that she could relate to. He "remembered" that she played soccer and tennis and discussed those activities and how those activities help her physical condition
Dr. Frino has been there every step of the way with me from discussing and recommending surgery, making himself accessible for questions before my surgery, visiting me everyday in the hospital and checking on me after I went home from the hospital-- always with a smile on his face too!
I have already recommended Dr. Frino to someone else.
If there were a mark above 5 I would give it to Dr. Frino. He is a wonderful physician who always listens and has the best interest for his patient. He makes you feel like he is treating his own child and wants what he would want as a parent. The best move we have ever made in the realm of medical decisions was deciding to get a second opinion from Dr. Frino. He has made a difficult experience more bearable. There is nothing harder than having a child with a diagnosis that has no real answers. He understands that and treats his patients with compassion and sensitivity, trying to treat not just the medical but also the emotional healing that must occur also.
Fine, all good.
Awesome Dr. He was great with our child.
The doctor was very friendly and understood my concern about my daughter.
Adore Dr. John Frino!!!
