Get to Know Me

What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

High triglycerides, high cholesterol.

What techniques or procedures do you use in your practice?

I use advanced lipid testing to better characterize risk and help identify the best therapeutic approaches for hard-to-treat cases.

What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?

In addition to general internal medicine, I am a board-certified clinical lipidologist.  I work with patients with poorly controlled triglycerides and cholesterol on achieving goal numbers, and preventing complications associated with bad cholesterol, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and pancreatitis.

Over the years I've had many doctors (I move a lot). Dr. Frauwirth is the best. he is respectful, frank, and doesn't have a superiority complex like many other doctors I've encountered in the past. I trust him.

my family has been with Dr Frauwirth for many years. we started with him when he had an office in Pompton Lakes, NJ. we have followed him to Wycoff and Midland Park. he has always been helpful and kind. he contacts us personally about results not his staff. this visit was the same, a good experience. I know he has my best interests on his mind.
