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.

A continued understanding of health program exists between the doctor and me. The doctor is professional with a good, quiet manner

Dr. Frauwirth [...] fantastic. The office is very professional. The fact that they respect you and your time means a great deal. I have heard horror stories from friends and family about care they receive elsewhere. When they do I refer them to Dr Frauwirth in fact my brother has become a patient with rave reviews. I have referred co workers as well
