I had been suffering with what I thought was severe plantars fasciitis (which had been diagnosed by another podiatrist). When I informed my tennis teammates that I could no longer play because of the pain, 2 team members recommended I see Dr. Frankfather. He, immediately, correctly diagnosed stress fractures along with severe plantars fasciitus and gave me a completely different protocol to follow. Just 2 months later, I was back on the court enjoying an active life.

I have been going to see Dr. Frankfather for several years... He always explains my issues clearly and answers all my questions... Recently I have had a problem with a fungus on both big toes... He prescribed Tolcylen which Has worked great! Have also been treated for stress fractures that I seem prone to have... The office staff is always very pleasant and accommodating... I would highly recommend this office!

I had a toenail removed 15 years ago and it was a horrible and painful experience so I was afraid to see a doctor for my other big toe. I finally made an appt with Dr. Frankfather b/c of his recent reviews and I'm so very glad I did. He was friendly, professional, funny, made me feel at ease, even though I didn't believe him! He took time with me and didn't make me feel that he was rushed. I had very little pain, done in the office, quick and easy and he saw me quickly. I love him!!!

My family has been a patient of Dr. Frankfather for sometime now, we adore, and appreciate the services we receive each time we visit. The staff is very nice, and professional, and you just can't say enough about Dr. Frankfather; his calm and gentle tone, he's very knowledgeable in his profession, he takes the time to listen, and even personally gives a follow up call after surgery. We just love him, he's the best hands down!

Dr. Frankfather has helped me tremendously with feet over several years. I have heel spurs, planter fasciitis and flat footed and bunions. Dr. Frankfather always takes time to explain options and gives me his input. I always feel comfortable asking him questions and being able to talk to him. This mean so much to be able to communicate and honestly talk with your doctor. I am very pleased with him and recommend him to family and friends.
