Dr. Frank was great today I got in for a same day appointment and then due to my car being done late at the shop was a a half hour late and they still took my appointment. He diagnosed and fixed an issue with my foot and it already feels better. The doctor and staff were extremely helpful.

Dr. Frank is a true professional. So many times I feel like the doctor is talking down at me. This was not true with this doctor. The staff at the office is wonderful. They make you feel so relaxed and they make sure that you are not waiting for ever. They are all confident in their work and are true professionals.

great guy/ short wait time/ very professional ....would highly recommend and would refer friends and family without hesitation
in Hyattsville, MD |
Have seen Dr. Frank on two separate occasions, one set of treatments / surgery for a fracture and one set of treatments for plantar fasciitis. I have had excellent results both times. Dr. Frank was great and don't mistake his quiet demeanor - he will explain things fully and is very competent.

The worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. I was sent to see him bexcuse my foot was suspected by a neurologist and orthopedic to have had a tissue tare. He was insistent they were wrong even though I had all the 5 tests with me to show otherwise. He would not look past the most simple explanation and rushed me out. He didn't even have a professional opinion as to what I needed to do next and expects me to live with a foot thato does not work. Lazy approach to patient care.

Dr. Frank and his staff were awesome.
