Dr Frankel was highly recommended. To schedule an appointment I called the office twice and sent a message through the Cedars Sinai messaging application. I did not get a response. He may be a great physician but this lack of communication is just not acceptable to me

If you need a colonoscopy or endoscopy - if you need a gastroenterologist - please do yourself a favor and see Dr. Frankel. He’s WONDERFUL! He was referred to me by my internist (who I revere), and he’s on lists of “Best Doctors” as recommended by other doctors. But I can only speak as a patient. Dr. Frankel is incredibly kind and patient. Incredibly! And he makes sure that every single person on his staff is kind and patient. And they are all METICULOUS - everything from a lengthy, detailed pre

Dr. Frankel is an excellent physician. He is very caring, knowledgeable and excellent support staff. I have been going to him for a colonoscopy for over 15 years. It is easy to schedule an appointment, his office is new and the environment is clean and comforting. The staff is friendly and courteous. I trust Dr. Frankel's decisions and he is very thorough in reviewing your medical conditions. He calls you before and after a procedure to find out how you are feeling.

Dr. Frankel is the most caring doctor I have in my life. He calls when you need to talk to him. He is kind and has an expert staff that assists him. I just wish he were my internist. I could not ask for a more thorough doctor, more thoughtful and attentive.
