How likely are you to recommend Dr. Frueh?

(Select your rating)
I’ve had the pleasure of Dr. Frueh’s expertise before. He was instrumental in making my hip replacement a wonderful success. I am now trusting him to do a knee replacement. He is so skilled and nice I send family and friends to him. No one has ever been unhappy about their experience. I’d give him more stars if I were able.
