Hello All,
I would like reviews of Dr. Clayton Frenzel in Arlington-Dallas, Texas. I'm having band issues and need a revision doctor but want to make sure I pick the best one. I'm self pay which is a horrible thing since I'm not sure I can even do anything about the band if it is damaged.
I've searched and can't find much about Dr. Frenzel. I have had a consult with him and he and his staff is very nice. He spent a lot of time answering all my questions but I can't find many that have used him...which makes me nervous. He does his surgery out of Forest Park Medical Center which I understand is an excellent facility.
You may pm me here if you don't want to post in public.
Thank you for your time.

Dr. Frenzel also works out of other hospitals.. he is a member of the Fort Worth Lap Band office... I used Dr. Adams out of their office with my surgery at Baylor Trophy Club. I have a friend that used Dr. Frenzel AND Dr. Smith and swears by both.. I have heard nothing but good things about both doctors...

The Forest Park Medical Center is a privately owned hospital. Owned by numerous doctors... Dr. Frenzel, Dr. Smith, Dr. Kim, and others... Turns out Baylor Trophy Club is also doctor owned/affiliated... That means THEY control the costs and therefore the self pay costs are less expensive.

Thank you so much! Are you a revision patient?
I had Dr. Carter in Arlington have had problems with his office from the very start but he was nice and helpful when I was a self pay in 2007...after that not so much. I can't get them to even call me back so I talked to Dr. Frenzel. Very nice and informative dr...took lots of time but I can't find anything about him other than one or two posts.

No I am not a revision but I have known a couple of people that were.... They regretted not getting the sleeve to start with... There is the Texas Medical Board website where you can check the doctors reputation and status... http://reg.tmb.state...NoticeVerif.asp

Just type in his first and last name... Looks like he has a clean record and the reason there isn't much on him is he is rather new to the metroplex....

Thanks so much. I know you will do wonderful!
In 2007 when I went to Dr. Carter I wanted the sleeve. He said it was dangerous and wouldn't recommend it. Now fast forward to now...I'm not sure if the band was the right choice.
Dr. Frenzel told me the "sleeve" at that time had been done longer than the bands..they just called it something else and I SHOULD have been sleeved at that time.
Good Luck!
Dee

I used Dr Frenzel, and cant say enough positive about the entire experience. He is board certified in bariatrics and plastics. He uses an OnQ ball post op, so there is no real post op pain.
