18/03/14 5 5 5 5 When I first decided to have surgery I was very nervous. I'm afraid of needles let alone of having a surgery that would change my appearance. Now being on the other I have to say that it has been a wonderful experience. It was not the traumatic experience I thought it would be. This is because of your excellent work and the staff who helps you. From my first appointment in your office, to the surgical center,I was treated with kindness, courtesy, and professionalism. The results have been beyond my wildest expectations. Neither you nor your staff was ever condescending to me with my questions or lack of knowledge. I have not been disappointed in placing my trust in you and your staff. Thank you for making a difficult decision easier for me. Your work is best advertisement!  Respond

24/01/14 5 5 1 3 I would never recommend. He is very kind, but his work is horrible. I had a breast lift, had to go back and pay 400.00 more to surgery center for a correction of the first surgery due to he took more from one breast then the other. Then I noticed the areola of the breast he just repaired looked cone shaped, he said its healing no big deal, and slipped he had stitched to tight, but will not repair not noticeable enough. Go else where  Respond

10/12/13 2 1 1 1 One of the worst experiences of my life! Do not trust this office. Went it for cosmetic work and spent $400 on cosmelan which was highly suggested by Dr.Frank for my treatment prior to cosmetic work. A few days prior to surgery I received a call that they did not have equipment for the surgery.What! What kind of office is this? Surgery was cancelled and I wasted $400 on the cream I had to use daily prior to surgery for 2 months. No refund. Payment was received up front for cosmetic surgery and I was told refund fir that would take up to 3 months. Staff was not helpful and I feel as if my time and money was wasted. I've informed friends and family of mu unfortunate situation and we are all very disappointes in this type of treatment to customers.

15/05/13 5 4 3 3 I did not believe the MD managed my complications well. Minimized the concerns I had and didn't take the time necessary to fix the problem right the first try. Had to repeat procedure and finally took MY suggestion to use smaller implant. I wasn't happy with lift of healthy breast and this was corroborated by another professional's comment that "it looked like a rushed job".

25/09/10 1 4 2 5 My wife had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Frank. Dr. Frank talked her into trying to resize her left areola during the procedure against her wishes. When the procedure had been completed Dr. Frank accidentally cut out the permanent stitch for the areola. Consequently her areola is now the same size as it was previously except now it looks like someone carved her up. The scarring is very noticeable and she does not like to look at her breasts in the light because of it. After he cut out the stitch, Dr. Frank told my wife he did not need to see her again. She did not go back and does not want to because she knows her breast will never be the same after what happened and she does not want to deal with the physical and emotion pain she would face if an attempt was made to correct the now scarred and unnatural looking areola.

03/11/06 5 5 5 I came to Dr. Frank a 36A... I did not feel like a woman and I didn't look it. I was determined a MAN was not going to see me or do my surgery, which is why I originally chose his associate Dr. Agarwal. Unfortuately, Dr. Agarwal went on maternity leave approximaely the same time I made my decision to forge ahead with the breast augmentation. Dr. Frank offered to do the surgery, but I was so embarrased about how flat chested I was, the last thing I wanted was for a stranger, a man, to see me. Originally, I declined. Several weeks went by and eventually I agreed to me Dr. Frank. When I met him, I was terrified; not of the surgery, but of the thought of him wanting to examin my breast to discuss them and the procedure. I met Dr. Frank and his demeanor was so sincere and gentle that it put my fears at ease. He allowed me to ask any question. He explained the entire process to me, what to expect, the pain, the healing process, everything. I would not trust anyone other than him.
