He spent a long time advising me on the treatment options for my foot problem. Dr. Frank was extremely knowledgeable on the orthotic options and other resources. It was a terrific visit and I highly recommend him to runners and endurance athletes.

Worst foot doctor ever. All he wanted to do was have me pay $300 (my deductible) for some orthodics and take advil. There was no interest in getting me better. Not to mention the Orthodics, were heavy. My shoes were lighter without them. I had to go to another doctor who gave me better light orthodics and paid attention to the issue and healed me. Not to mention the fact that office never took my co-pay and then added $5 everytime they sent a paper statement. Avoid them and save your money.

Dr. Frank is an exceptional doctor. He is an expert in his field as he provides you with a well informed diagnosis and prognosis. He is also an excellent surgeon; he corrected my problem, explained the recovery process, and continued with appropriate follow-up. As one of the top foot and ankle surgeons in the area I appreciate his expertise.

I cannot recommend Mr. Frank for tendon/muscle/ligament foot injuries. I felt I was getting lip-service, not knowledge. I saw him due to weakness of big toe, which caused uneven gait and pain in joints. He is soft-spoken, and listened, but refused to look at MRI I brought, saying it takes "time" to see them. I sought and found Nr. 1 foot orthopedist in the US, who reviewed MRI in less than 5 mins, and identified the problem which required prompt surgery, which was a complete success.

Phenomenal physician/surgeon. He sat & listened to my story, took his time to fully understand my history & was so thorough before making a diagnosis. Dr. Frank not only performed a successful surgery, but uncovered that I was previously misdiagnosed with an underlying condition. Dr. Frank has given me hope for a life again & my family too. He also took care of my dad 5 yrs. ago who now lives pain free.

Extremely caring, courteous and very professional. Took the time to listen to my concerns, what was working and not working as far as past treatments. Suggested tests to more accurately diagnose the severity of current problems and sensitive to what my insurance plan would cover and willing to adjust accordingly. Explained everything in easy to understand language.

After several office visits with him plus out patient surgery on my foot for a bunion, I have found him knowledgeable, compassionate and interested. Dr. Frank is not overbooked and will spend as much time with you as necessary.

Had a great experience with Dr. Frank. Able to get an appointment right away. Dr. Frank fit me in his busy schedule several weeks later for foot surgery. The foot and leg pain is completely eliminated. Just started PT, six weeks after surgery and the foot is healing well. Office staff was exceptional
