Dr. Frishhertz is one of the best doctors and most wonderful doctor that I I have ever met. He treats you like you are his best friend and part of his family. He is so relaxed and just takes his time to listen to everything. I have been with him since he came to Vanderbilt. He is wonderful and precious to me.
