Dr. Frenkel has always been very professional and gets to the point of the visit. He and his staff gives you a feeling of confidence that they know what there are doing. Each of his staff walk you through each step in preparation for your visit with Dr. Frenkel. I highly recommend him.

I was schedule to Dr Frenkel on 4/22. My appointment was for 2:30 and I was not seen until close to 5:00pm I ended seeing another doctor who did not know anything about me and I was very unhappy. I went there for a follow up and feel my problem was not looked at. Also there were changes in my vision that concern me and feel everything was overlooked. This is the first time I am so disappointed. My first appointment was cancelled on 4/1 which I understood. Next time I cannot be seen as I should I would appreciate you would be honest enough to cancel my appointment. Lucille Guimond

Excellent physician. He's the one the other doctors and judges go to. Harvard trained without an ego, compassionate. Great surgeon. Goes the extra mile for you.

I've seen several ophthalmologists on the Treasure Coast, Dr. Frenkel was the best by far!
