What People Say About Dr. Steven Frankel, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Manipulates patients into seeing him extremely regularly (3 times per week) by putting them on high doses of addictive medications. Refuses to allow patients to decrease frequency of appointments by causing them to be dependent on those medications.

I have had nothing but positive experiences with Dr. Steven Frankel and consider him one of the finest physicians in Marin County. Over the years I have had the privilege of working closely with Dr. Frankel I have shared referrals and covered his practice. His patients have consistently reflected that his dedication to their care has been exceptional. Dr. Frankel has been practicing over 35 years and is the author of five books that emphasize the importance of collaborative patient care.
