Dr Fragner is a caring, communicative, knowledgeable and top notched physician. I was very fortunate to find him, a few years ago, as I suffered from chronic, intermittent painful episodes in both thumbs. As a pianist I just lived with the episodes for decades. When I decided to try and find a solution, I was fortunate enough to find Dr Fragner listed as a hand specialist in Westchester Magazine's Top Doctor yearly ratings issue.
