Automobile Accident-Brain Injury

“I went to Dr. Frank for evaluation and treatment of traumatic brain injuries after being treated unsuccessfully in another facility by “expert” concussion doctors. I knew after my initial evaluation by Dr. Frank that I was with the right doctor. I now know what should have be done in my initial examinations (first chiropractor, then a medical neurologist) to determine what is wrong with me, and thus how to get me better. The other doctors’ exams were a joke in comparison, no wonder I did not improve.  Without a doubt the most knowledgeable compassionate physician I have ever met. Really goes the extra mile and is genuinely concerned in the treatment and recovery. He even came to Ocala to see me. Highly recommend, he genuinely cares about his patients. Thank you and all the best Dr Frank.” P.S. Don’t just let your lawyer send you to “their” clinic. It is your health.

Thyroid

“I have been dealing with “thyroid” issues since the early 1990’s. I was told I had “irregular nodules” on my thyroid and told I needed and received a radioactive ablation that made me dependent on medication for the rest of my life. I have been up and down on medications with see-sawing results at best. Dr. Frank performed the most thorough diagnostic examination I have ever had, certainly no endocrinologist did what he did, along with extensive blood work that one endocrinologist called “pointless”. Needless to say, the information obtained from these “pointless” test allowed Dr. Frank to pinpoint the true area of dysfunction (wasn’t my thyroid) which allowed him to tailor a treatment program that supported my condition. I haven’t felt this good in twenty years. Thank you Dr. Frank for giving me back my life and my future.”

Developmental Delay

“I was told by my sons teachers and school counselors that he had ADD . His pediatrician thought that was a possibility too, and that his constant headaches were “just growing pains”. I brought him to Dr. Frank for an exam. When I told Dr. Frank about my son’s constant headaches he asked for the MRI of the brain (assuming that it was performed by the MDs); there wasn’t one. Dr. Frank saw inappropriate findings within minutes of starting the examination, like spontaneous wrist and ankle movement. He referred us for an MRI immediately and to a medical pediatric neurologist. Of course the MD’s first appointment was in 6 months! So I took my son for the MRI where they found abnormalities in his brain. The findings got us an appointment the next day with the medical neurologist. My family and I a greatly appreciative of Dr. Frank’s attention to detail. My son has a greater chance of functioning out at a higher level in life with Dr. Frank in his corner. You are our angle!”

Compressive Neuropathy

“I was performing exercises when I felt a pop and burning sensation in the back of my leg. Within an hour I could no longer stand on my leg and the pain was terrible. I went to the emergency room where they diagnosed me as having a pulled hamstring and gave me medication for the pain. I tried to deal with the pain for 2 weeks to no relief. I was fortunate to be referred to Dr. Frank. I told him what happened and the hospitals findings. Dr. Frank was horrified to find that my lower left leg was completely weak, i could not move it at all. A couple of tests later, none of which were performed in the hospital, he diagnosed the injury as compressive neuropathy and he told me to go the ER right away for an emergency surgery. Again, the hospital told me to just give the injury time to heal and were going to prescribe me more meds. I pleaded with them that I didn’t want to lose the use of my leg. A visiting trauma surgeon from Jackson Memorial overheard my pleas and investigated. I was in surgery 6 hours later to decompress a hematoma that was crushing my sciatic nerve. The doctor said another day or two and would have most likely lost the use of my leg forever. Thank you Dr. Frank for your depth of knowledge. You saved my leg and life. I know with functional neurology my road to recovery will be less steep.

If you think I need to come back in on Friday for treatment and to go over things I’ll make the ride happen.

WELL DESERVED ACCOLADES FOR DR FRANK! HERE’S WHY…
VERY LONG (POST) SHORT- his neurological background is the icing on the cake. He identifies and treats problems in the areas of the brain that control your pain- the spinal cord, peripheral nerves and muscles. I had a great experience.”
The long version; lol
First, I don’t think there’s any chiropractor anywhere that could address the problem on the spot without multiple visits. It takes a complex evaluation and ongoing treatment- and for some, very few visits to get the problem addressed, treated, and under control to the point that only a little tune-up here and there is necessary.
Dr Frank’s neurological certification is, IMO, what sets him apart from all others. His frequent evaluations along the way (to make sure you’re on the right track) will result in the need for less visits eventually. During his exam, things such as lights and reflex hammers, are used to assess the nervous system- motor skills, balance, coordination, and even your mental status- all playing a part of the pain you suffer with. Nothing lasting happens in a day.
He’s not “just” a chiropractor, not that there’s anything wrong with chiropractors- he isn’t going to suggest multiple visits unless you need them- not just to make you a repeat “10 minute ” patient. A leg issue was contributing to my back pain- putting a 1/8” lift in one shoe helps maintain the benefits of his chiropractic care.
I think once you connect with ANY Dr who really gives you personal attention, then and only then will you get to the point where your visits will become fewer and further between. Where are those doctors that know you by something more than a number on a chart??
When I recognized the neurological issues contributing to my pain, I was better able to cope with it along with treatment. After a reasonable amount of time, the pain went from a stabbing, debilitating 10 to a very bearable 3 or 4- not just from an adjustment or two.
Addressing the neurological root of the problem, rather than just treating it, is the shortcut to get you to where you want to be- that visit every now and then that I think you’re looking for. I’ve never known a chiropractor, or any other physician for that matter, who goes to such great lengths as he does- sometimes losing sleep over complex issues (such as mine) in order to identify the root of it and helped me cope with and alleviate my pain. I’m impressed by his desire to never see a patient again, if you get my gist. 😉 lNext time you have pain somewhere, stick your hand into a big bowl of ice, then come back and let me know the results. 👍🏼
Thank you so much!
