Dr. Richard Frankel has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Infectious Disease

    An infectious disease specialist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of contagious diseases.
    Infectious diseases, also known as contagious or transmissible diseases, are those that stem from pathogen from a host organism. These infections may spread to other carriers through physical touch, airborne inhalation, bodily fluids or contaminated foods.
    Infectious disease specialists identify whether the disease is caused by bacteria, a virus, a fungus or a parasite often through blood tests and then determine what course of treatment, if any, is necessary.

Epitomizes the word " arrogant."

You get the impression that this man is constantly looking at his watch and that he considers himself highly benevolent by granting you his time. Further, he is thinking about something else as he talks to you. Using this as a guide, you wonder about people crib sheeting as he is or was the director of some sort of intern/resident program in Hawaii which rates rock bottom in meritorious med schools nation wise. The kind of man who " doesn't want to get involved " and pretends not to see what's going on right under his very nose.

Doctor's Response

Highfalutin must really hate me. I have not seen patients in private practice since 1984. I last saw patients in a hospital teaching clinic in 2002. I wonder whether he or she was, in fact, a patient and how she or he determined that Hawai's school of medicine 'rates rock bottom'.
