Dr. Frank Samarin, MD
Dr. Samarin grew up in a small town just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He feels his most important jobs are being a husband and parenting his three children. In addition to that, he absolutely loves being a dermatologist. He earned his medical degree at MCP/Hahnemann School of Medicine in Philadelphia. From there, he served as a flight surgeon for the United States Air Force. Subsequently, he completed a dermatology residency at Yale University. Dr. Samarin moved to Colorado Springs to serve as the dermatologist at the United States Air Force Academy. That is when he and his family fell in love with Colorado Springs and decided to make this wonderful community their home. When not at work, he enjoys getting hurt while trying to play basketball, losing to his kids at card games, and trying to find more time to spend outdoors hiking with his wife and two dogs.

Patient Comments (2)
in Colorado Springs, CO |
I had a rare, extremely serious adverse reaction the the antibiotic Bactrim. Dr. Samarin acted as if he didn't believe what I told him, such as the extreme sunburn/rash appeared with a trip to the mailbox. He kept saying "that would be very unusual." Well, yess.. He told me the rash on my neck was a sunburn and suggested laser. I t said that's dangerous because I am photosensitive. In all, I was dealing with a doctor who did not understand this and did not have the courtesy to admit it.

Dr. Samarin and his staff are outstanding. The entire experience from scheduling an appointment, wait time in the office and the actual visit where much better then could be expected.
