    Dr. Frank says...

    I am board certified in neurology with subspecialty board certification in vascular neurology (stroke) and neurocritical care (life threatening neurological and neurosurgical problems). I am one of the founders of the field of neurocritical care in the United States - dedicated to caring for patients with the most extreme neurological conditions. These include disorders such as traumatic brain injury, intracerebral hemorrhage, ischemic stroke, brain infections, meningitis,encephalitis, status epilepticus, hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, coma, Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, brain swelling, intracranial hypertension, hydrocephalus, brain tumors, myasthenia gravis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, ALS with rerspiratory failure, and transverse myelitis. 

    I have built two of the most reputable neurocritical care programs in the country, and have trained hundreds of physicians over my 30 years since completing medical school. In addition to being a committed clinician and educator, I have been a highly productive clinical researcher that has changed clinical practice through my research findings. 

    I travel all over the world to see patients with extreme neurological conditions and help guide them and their families through crises. 

    Dr. Frank says...

    I am a highly skilled examiner of the nervous systems. Some of the unique tests I perform include transcranial Doppler ultrasound and insertion of intracranial pressure monitors.
