Is he back in practice? I had surgery in May, 2017 laminectomy . It did not help. I need to see him again. Please can I make an appointment? I did not get to see him again because of his own surgery, but if he is seeing patients again, I would like an appt. I definitely would recommend him. Jean Poppe BD 2/13/1947

Dr Frank is very competent and compassionate. He did a spinal fusion for me six years ago and my back still feels great.

Dr. Frank is AMAZING! He's the nicest, most knowledgeable man. So compassionate and empathetic. I'm very knowledgeable in this area as I've had back problems for over a decade along with a prior surgery and I was beyond impressed with his skill level and how well he explains things. I've since referred my mom and father-in-law to see him. I cannot say enough good things about him. He performed a two level lumbar fusion with microdiscectomies and 5 weeks out I'm doing fantastic.

Dr. Frank performed my right SI joint fusion. Very knowledgeable, took his time to explain the procedure ant techniques. Sent me home with a video prior to surgery. Surgery a great success. Takes his time during follow up visits.

I liked Dr. Frank a lot and would recommend him but I did experience some issues with getting a prescription filled and from the staff in trying to get the prescription issue resolved. Poor listening skills & a lack of follow up by his staff led to frustration on my part. A text from the pharmacy informing me that my prescription was ready for pick up is how I was made aware that the issue was resolved. No follow up phone call from the office as requested was received. Mistakes happen but...
