As we age, our hormones decrease. As our hormones decrease we can experience symptoms such as fatigue, depression, weight gain, decreased stamina, low libido, and poor sleep. Dr Frank has significant experience in understanding how these hormonal changes affect the body, and the best way to treat them. By using customized, compounded medications from a highly respected pharmacy, Dr Frank can make you look and feel younger! Wouldn’t it be great to have more energy, more drive, and feel better? Dr Frank uses an in depth lab panel and DNA testing to determine which hormones in your body are not at optimum levels, and then prescribes a comprehensive treatment system to get you back on track.

Acute and Chronic Pain Relief
We all know that inflammation leads to pain, so why not treat the inflammation within our painful problem!? The new Class IV Cutting Edge Laser at the Frank Institute serves to treat the underlying cause of pain, without covering it up with medications. The Laser was a modality developed to deliver therapeutic wavelengths to the body allowing it’s penetration to thermally decrease inflammation, edema, swelling, and pain. An energetic synergy is created when delivering these wavelengths that produces greater anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects to the body. The MLS Cutting Edge Class IV laser sets itself apart from other class IV lasers due to its unique synchronization of continuous pulsed wavelengths to the body. Laser therapy uses light to favor and accelerate the body’s natural healing processes. The laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy (photons) penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules (chromophores) that cause different biological effects. It produces a photochemical, photothermal and photomechanical effect.
Ever find yourself being rushed through a doctors appointment? Have you ever felt that you are just a number in the providers schedule? Is it not obvious that your provider doesn’t take the time to get to know you, nor do they remember you time after time? Here at Frank Institute, we take pride in knowing our patients. We spend the necessary time with our patients in order to provide the best health care possible. We customize every individuals care specifically for them. We are thorough throughout our appointments and we are accessible whenever our patients need us. Here at the Frank Institute we provide better health for a better life. *** Most Insurance Plans Taken for Primary Care, call (910) 679-8534 for more details ***
