Pain from Sciatica was bringing my life to a standstill. I tried PT, accupuncture and Chiropractor care. I gave in and tried pain management with Dr. Frankenberger. She listened, gave me a full examination and came up with a medical plan of action. She carefully gave me cortisone injections explaining throughout the procedure what she was doing. My pain was gone within a day! It’s almost two months later and no pain. Don’t live with pain, Dr Frankenberger can help you. Staff is great

I have been to several pain management doctors closer to home but have found Dr. Frankenburger worth the trip for the best in pain relief. She is very accurate with her injections and diagnosis. She takes the time to explain her plan. She is Very Professional and I feel lucky to have found her as well as other doctors in the St Charles Orthopaedic Group.

Great overall experience with Dr. Frankenberger. She conducted a thorough evaluation and knew about my condition at my first visit as she had already reviewed my MRI results. I had an epidural injection to treat a herniated disc in my neck and not only did it help me, but the way she conducted the procedure was flawless and professional.

I suffered from muscle spasms in my neck and very bad headaches due to surgery. For over 15 years. I tried everything and it just caused more pain. Dr. Frankenberger gave me relief for the first time in 15 years she knew right away what was causing the pain. I have read some of her reviews about her bedside manner. She is very busy and she sometimes comes off that way I believe because of her busy schedule. l When people are in pain they tend to want there doctor to be there therapist.

She was highly recommended by a friend of the family. He was very happy with the treatment she provided for his pain. I was very satisfied with the treatment she provided. It helped eliminate or minimize my knee pain for a considerable time. I'm returning for a second treatment.

I have been having severe muscular pain and other issues with my left arm and shoulder that cause me severe pain every day of my life for over two years now after a car accident. I went to see Dr. Frankenberger after seeing almost every specialist under the sun to deal with my conditions. She was amazing... She was able to discover the main cause of my symptoms which are two herniated disks (which no one picked up on, everyone was just treating my symptoms) and gave me a treatment plan (that I a

I sought treatment from dr Frankenberger for chronic muscle spasms in my neck, shoulder and right arm due to disc degeneration. She was able to give me great relief with trigger point injections and cervical epidurals. I've read some of the comments from other patients regarding her lack of warmth. I'll agree that it's imperative that a doctor listen to their patients, however her medical knowledge is beyond reproach. She released me from a decade of pain. That, to me, is what matters most.

KHer bedside manner is seriously lacking. She is Cole, doesn't listen and seems to have no feeling or compassion . I ended up with little relief, my prescriptions were not called in, my PT script was not given to measure well as a report or receipt . Would recommend you go elsewhere Ps..all this after waiting 2 months for an appointment. Poor

Dr. Frankenberger's level of compassion for her patients is lacking. She needs to listen more to her patients and less on just relying on her medical training. Getting her patients out of pain quickly should be her #1 priority, not allowing them to suffer with no relief.

Dr. Frankenberger is the best pain management Dr you could find. She is kind,knows her business,explains what is going on, how she can help. I did not think I could find a Dr to help me with three herniated discs in my neck and other problems, I also allergic to steroids, so I did not think she could help. Boy I was wrong , she has kept my pain under control and i m able to live my life again , I'm active with my son ,gardening again etc. I would recommend her to family and friend. Thank you Dr

I came to Dr. Frankenberger after having rotator cuff surgery. I ended up after the surgery with scapula muscle spasms, my orthopedic told me he couldn't help me & told me to see a pain management doctor, my pt therapists recommended Dr. Frankenberger who gave me an injection in the scapula muscle area & stopped the spasms. She now is giving me gel shots in my left knee, I trust her completely & she never mentions surgery to me which is the best I could hope for.

I would definitely recommend this doctor. She is very kind, experienced and knowledgeable. She took her time to explain each procedure, gave information and answered all my questions. She sees all her patients and performs all procedures herself which is a big plus!
