Clinton, MD |
Great doctor. He analyzed the problems I was having with my feet. Provided me with the solution. Very short weight time. Dr. Frank was very nice. I felt that he was genuine when treating me. I would definitely recommend him to other patients.

My daughter had corrective flatfoot surgery on both of her feet last year by Dr. Frank and the results have been amazing. I was referred to Dr. Frank by my primary care doctor as one of the top foot and ankle surgeons in the Washington DC area. After consulting with Dr. Frank several times I felt confident in him doing the surgery. His gentle and professional bed side manner showed me that he really cared about my daughters well-being. I highly recommend Dr. Frank.

Dr. Frank is definitely the doctor to see in the Washington DC area if you need your bunion and hammertoes fixed. Thanks for your patience and a job well done on a difficult corrective surgery.
He was great! very helpful and as well as his staff. Highly recommend! very knowledgeable!
Waldorf, MD |
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.
