Ratings for Dr. Christian Fras
First after reading some the reviews, I believe some people just love to complain. It is normal for a doctor to run alittle late and everyone can have an off day. It also depends on what kind of day you are having for you to write a negative review. . I found Dr. Fras very helpful in explaining my situation. I will learn more with a followup visit.
Let this be said: a good surgeon should have respect and empathy for patients by being on time, explaining and showing patients their x-rays before and after surgery, by not being evasive of patient's questions, and suggesting supports if the surgery does not have a good outcome.
Dr. Fras is strictly interested in surgical patient. In other words, when he deemed that I am not a surgical candidate based on my MRI, he did not explain the MRI findings to me and sent me back to my anesthesiologist. In addition, he lacks strong medical knowledge. The sense that I got during my visits with him is that his only solution to a problem that he could fix is surgery. He either is not aware of other treatment for back injuries or he does not find the empathy and professional interest in counseling patient. Also, be aware that at Dr. Fras' office in Broomall, his staff booked multiple patients at the same time. I had to wait over an hour and 30 minutes to see him.
I waited forever in the office. when he finally saw me, the best that I could tell he didn't review my films (just scanned the reports?) or spend much time with me. I was looking for a second opinion and, after seeing him, I'm still looking for a second opinion. Because I wasn't doubled over in pain, he basically seemed to decide right off the bat that my condition wasn't all that bad, in my opinion.
