About Me

Care Philosophy

Most spine and musculoskeletal injuries can be effectively treated without surgery. After accurate diagnosis, rehabilitation measures are extremely effective in controlling pain and in preventing re-injury. By teaching and monitoring the latest advances in spine and sports injury, my goal is to quickly return my patients to their active lifestyles.

What People Say About Dr. Lawrence Frank, MD

Dr Frank has spent several years of treating back and leg pain (radiculopathy from stenois/disc issues). He started with very low interventions which worked well for a long time, putting off surgery. Great doctor, caring, kind. And wonderful office staff. Highly recommend.

Don't waste your time, I was in more pain after a consultation. He had a resident doctor working with him who actually asked a lot of questions and did a thorough examination. Dr Frank comes in asks a few of the same questions, twists me around and attempted to discredit my general practitioners findings, however I noticed on his summary, his diagnosis was exactly the same as hers...He was unwilling to treat immediately with workers comp, but inquired about what kind of health insurance I had.

I saw two different physiatrists and a neurosurgeon for nine months. No one could find or solve my problem. Fortunately I made an appointment to see Dr. Frank. Straight and to the point, and with some time and testing, he determined what my problems were and successfully put me on a path to being a healthy person again. Dr. Frank is one of the smartest people I have ever met! He is also the best doctor I have ever seen. I owe him a great deal. Mike

Dr. Frank is a great listener/practitioner/diagnostician. He thoroughly assesses your condition and puts together the best treatment plan to address you symptomatology. He has a great staff of nurses, techs, schedulers, and office staff that are very helpful in getting you in and scheduled for any procedures that are needed. Dr. Frank is not afraid to think outside the box in attempting to formulate a treatment plan that best meets your needs. He is the only physical med/rehab doctor for me.

I am extremely pleased with the care I received from Dr. Frank, as well as all of the people included in his support staff, including the nurses, the technicians, and the support people at the front desk. Also, I am extremely pleased that my procedure was performed at GlenOaks Hospital, where again, everyone that I ever encountered at this hospital was extremely competent, extremely friendly, and extremely considerate of my needs I would not want to go to any hospital other than GlenOaks.

My shoulder was killing me. Sharp pain when reaching behind my back. Physical therapy wasn't working, so I saw Dr. Frank. I got a late afternoon appointment in a few days. He checked my range of motion, asked about pain intensity and what I had tried to alleviate the pain. He diagnosed rotator cuff inflammation. We discussed treatment options and I agreed to receive an injection. It was a virtually pain free injection. He told me it would feel much better in a few days and it did.

Dr. Frank has treated my entire family and several friends for a long time. Ive had nothing but good experience. Especially with injections. Ive had them with other physicians and the experience wasn't as good.

I saw Dr. Frank for wrist problems. After he examined me he was able to diagnose me. He answered my questions and was able to explain why I had this problem. He gave me the option of a wrist injection. I had the injection and my wrist is feeling much better. I would recommend Dr. Frank to my friends and family members.
