His EMS training began at the University of Notre Dame where he worked taking medical and fire calls during college.
Dr. Fraser is a California native, born and raised in Orange County and is excited to return home after 20 years. He is looking forward to giving back all that he has learned to not only treat but lead those that get to serve the Long Beach Community and all who need us to provide excellent care.
