Dr. Frank performed ACL reconstruction on my knee, and it has been a tremendous success. I returned to my desk job a week after surgery, and physical therapy has progressed faster than my expectations. Through the entire process, Dr. Frank, his assistant Jaymie, and the rest of the team have provided outstanding medical guidance and treatment. I'm fortunate to have been treated by him, and I would highly recommend him to my closest friends and family.

I had Rotator Cuff tear and Dr. Frank diagnosed and performed necessary surgery. Excellent experience from the staff at AGH, Dr. Frank's office staff and Dr. Frank himself. Excellent job all around.

I had ACL reconstruction with Dr. Frank in June 2017 after tearing it in Martial Arts. He told me I would need a new ACL and if I want to get back to training, I would need to do the surgery. He reassured me that I was in good hands, and he was right. From start to finish, I do not even have one complaint about him or anyone in his office. Very caring, thoughtful and compassionate group. His assistant Jamie is also a blessing. She answered all of my questions thoroughly and made me feel at ease.

I was very displeased with my experience at Dr. Frank's office. I had severe knee pain for weeks and he gave me a simple answer of "sometimes that happens". I had x-rays taken, but never saw them. I left feeling frustrated and it seemed as though he thought I was making the pain up. A week later I saw a different doctor through a different hospital. My knee cap was slowly dislocating and it was obvious on the new scans that I was allowed to see. Very glad I got a 2nd opinion. Saved my knee

To whom it may concern.. Dr. Darin Frank , Well, he is a pretty cool guy. He cares, You get a straight no ( nonsense) answer from him. He, and his staff , always have a refreshing ( can do attitude) ..... Anyone that has seen the health care environment change , over the past decade . Realizes that more than (3) to (5) minutes with a specialist is the going rate .. Dr. Frank , Has always managed to spend that extra (5) to (10) minutes , to actually explain what just happened.

I suffered a traumatic shoulder injury. Dr. Frank performed the intricate surgery to repair the rotator cuff, ligaments and bicep tears. His skill and expertise has given me a great outcome. He is a very dedicated and compassionate surgeon. He explained the process clearly to me and guided we through the rehab with frequent followup visits. His staff, especially Jaymie Farino, PA-C, were very compassionate. Jamie was willing to return my phone calls/emails quickly to answer my questions.

I have seen dr Frank for different things. He has repaired a torn rotator cuff and repaired the miniscus in my left knee and I have got cortisone shots in my right knee. I have found Dr Frank to be professional, knowledgeable ,caring and considerate and the staff at his office are awesome. Because of my recommendation Dr Frank has also seen and helped my husband, my son , my sister and my niece ! He is a wonderful doctor and I will certainly see him again if I ever have a need for his service
