Dr Frank was the fifth doctor I was sent to . I had never heard of a Physiatrist, couldn't even pronounce the word. First my primary doctor, she told me I needed to see a back specialist sent to a Orthopedic specialist, he suggest a neurologist he suggest a neurosurgeon, than sent to see Dr Frank, finally he figured it out. What a nice guy he checked my medical record, told me to go off one of my meds (which was actually causing majority of the pain), than followed up with solutions to help resolve my issues. So far I am getting this under control. Doctor Frank is very personably and a likeable person. Will continue to recommend Dr. Lawrence Frank to all my friends.
I have been a patient of Dr. Frank's for 15 years. He is a great listener, practitioner, and diagnostician. I have seen him for many ailments and he takes a very thorough approach to assessing the problem and putting together a treatment plan to address your specific needs. He is not afraid to think outside the box in order to provide you the best options for your care. As with every great doctor, there is a great staff behind him that keeps the operation running smoothly. Dr. Frank has a wonderful office staff, nurses, techs, and schedulers there to set up appts and work with you regarding your insurance. Dr. Frank has always provided me the best treatment for my symptoms. He is the only physical med/rehab doctor for me.
I saw Dr. Frank for wrist problems. After he examined me he was able to diagnose me. He answered my questions and was able to explain why I had this problem. He gave me the option of a wrist injection. I had the injection and my wrist is feeling much better. I would recommend Dr. Frank to my friends and family members.
