I’m a physical therapist who required a spinal fusion. As a neurological rehab PT, I am well aware of surgical procedures (the good and bad!) and after care. Dr. Frankel is THE BEST! In his techniques, caring and bedside manor.

Back fusion surgery. Dr Frankel is a superior surgeon. Explained the procedure and outcome expectations well. Follow up visits were extremely helpful as I continue to heal.

I was referred to Dr. Frankel from the emergency room physician after being admitted with agonizing pain from spinal stenosis. I had been in physical therapy for some time and had a series of three epidurals with steroids with little lasting success. My appointments with Dr. Frankel's office were always a real pleasure, his staff is outstanding and very out going and friendly and extremely competent. And amazingly I was always seen ON TIME!!! :) Of course I had Googled Dr. Frankel as well doing my "due diligence" and found nothing but rave revues. I had surgery about six weeks ago and my problems have been resolved with no complications. I can't express enough my utter delight with the results of Dr. Frankel's surgical talent! I recommend Dr. Frankel and his staff without reservation, absolutely! John H., DDS

I had 2 other surgeries before Dr. Frankel. He was by far the best surgeon I have ever had as far as recovery time and outcome of surgery. He performed an ALIF and I was back at desk work with in a few days after released. Awesome job! I would highly recommend him to anyone. Very caring and honest person!

He actively listens before explaining what he does/does not see on images. I appreciate that he always takes a very conservative approach to healing.

Dr. Frankel was excellent. He was extremely thorough and straightforward in his approach and discussion. Very easy to talk to and was not all rushed in discussing my MRI results and alternative approaches to treatment. Would highly recommend him.

Dr Frankel is an amazing surgeon! He and his office staff is attentive, caring and always more than willing to help. He performed 2 of my spinal procedures and has put me back on the road to being pain free. I recommend him to anyone who is experiencing back pain and want guaranteed relief.

Dr. Frankel did my neck surgery 16 years ago. Unfortunately it has taken a beating over the years but the surgery has held fast. I can't say that for the rest of my body that took the accidental beatings. Just know it will be top notch surgery if you need it.

I had incredibly good results with both my lower back and and neck surgery. Dr Frankel explained the cause of my pain and numbness in my arm as well as the procedure and expected results in great detail . All my questions were answered in easily understood terms.

The best! After spending years with lots of discomfort, accepting the new ‘low’ as a way of existing, I was recommended to visit Atlanta Brain and Spine, where I met Dr Frankel. Immediately Dr Frankel signaled calm, confidence, and did not make decisions for me. He left all autonomy to me. Dr Frankel took time to educate and supplied ample information and my desicion for Dr Frankel to perform the surgery became an easy one to make. The best decision I made with the best surgeon on my side.

I am very grateful to Dr Frankel and his staff for the great care that went into my pre-surgical, surgical, and post surgical decision making and care. I just "graduated" from their practice with an "all clear" 6 months following my successful and easy cervical disk replacement. As a practicing Physician Assistant, I feel very lucky to have had Dr Frankel and his team on my case and I wouldn't recommend any other team!

I had what I thought was incurable back and leg pain for almost 5 years... until I had the fortune of meeting Dr. Frankel. I was very hesitant going into surgery but his calming presence and strong conviction on how to fix me made me believe he truly cared and that I was in capable hands. I can now walk as far as I want again! If you're struggling to find a spine surgeon, look no further. Him and the entire staff at Atlanta Brain and Spine made me feel like I was being evaluated in my own home.
