Lincoln, RI |
We arrived home from vacation at 3:00am but still made arrangements to get our daughter to Dr. Frankel in keeping our appointment. When arriving we learned Dr. Frankel was not in the office! No phone call pre-notifying us, waited 2hrs to finally be seen by another. Rude, rude, rude office staff. Disrespectful Doctor - you just lost another patient. Now we know why her ratings are so low

I would never recommend Dr. Frankel to anyone. I went to her for almost a year and was told my fingernail growth was normal and to give it time to grow out. As a nurse I wasn't convinced. One visit with another derm office and was diagnosed with a fungal infection and given medication to treat it. All Dr. Frankel cares about is $$ and selling her own product line.
Cranston, RI |
Very rushed. I had asked for a full body skin check. Dr Frankel came in acting as if this were the last appointment of the day and she had to rush to get out of there. this was at 7:30 in the morning. She never looked at my whole body, telling me any spots I had were not an issue, and got a large can & froze 15 skin tags, saying 15 only would get paid by insurance. she then had the check out people try to sell my skin care products we had never discussed. terrible experience. Not going back

I canceled an appointment for my Daughter two weeks before her appointment. They sent her a bill anyway. I called and was spoken to like a child. I was then told if the future to get the name of the person I am speaking to. Do they not trust their staff? I have been using them for many years but, no more.
