Dr. Frank's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Frank "Dr Frank has practiced medicine in California, Illinois and Michigan as well as overseeing laboratory operations in Kansas. He ran international clinical research departments for Abbott and Roche and created and achieved FDA-approval for the first home HIV test and home HCV test in the United States. He created the first FDA-approved telephonic counseling center for HIV, STDs and Hepatitis C, resulting in several academic publications. Shortly after his children were born, he went back into clinical practice full-time and runs Northern Health and Wellness with a terrific staff. While most of his time is dedicated to outpatient medicine, Dr Frank also works as an inpatient physician for MidMichigan Medical Center in Alpena and teaches students from Michigan State University's College of Human Medicine. His first book, "Your Poisoned Plate: Why you are Fat, Sick and Tired" emphasizes his philosophy of educating patients to understand how their daily choices impact their health far more than any pill or supplement."

I have many health issues and Dr Frank is always on top of these. He takes the time to discuss these issues and listens to me. Preventative care is important to him and he encourages a healthy diet.

Not the brightest, does not get back to the patient in a timely manner, and has allowed greed to overtake his practice.
