I have no hesitancy whatsoever in highly recommending Dr. Frachtman and the Austin Gastroenterology PA group. Dr. Frachtman has been my gastroenterologist for the past 25 years or so. Although it is common for several years to go by before a health issue requires that I see Dr. Frachtman, when the need does arise I am seen promptly and have great faith in the treatment received. It is comforting to know that Dr. Frachtman and his associates are available. – WH
Listened to my needs as a patient. Enjoyed the pre-talks with his assistant. The whole team was great! Scheduling was a breeze! – CG
