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.

Clinical Trials

LOWER
LOWER is an observational trial looking at the long term effects of lomitapide.  This is a novel drug used to treat a rare and extreme form of high cholesterol known as homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia.

"Dr. Frauwirth is exceptional. He takes his time to explain issues and listen to my concerns."
"I always have an excellent experience with Dr. Frauwirth."
"Dr. Frauwirth is enormously competent, very thoughtful and helpful. He has the right amount of sternness that you find yourself telling the truth about how much you drink and whether you exercise. He is extremely thorough and addresses every question raised. Even more, he listens to worries and does not patronize in his answers. Definitely recommend."
"Dr. Frauwirth is terrific! Follow-up telephone call two days later with a high-level review of blood test results. Really appreciated that."
