Although there are many good podiatrists in the St. Louis area to choose from, Dr. Frank should be your choice for all your podiatric needs.
As a solo practitioner with only one office, Steven Frank DPM, LLC can assure you that you will always be appointed the same doctor at the same office. This way, you will be familiar with the staff, who will also be familiar with you and will be able to offer early and late appointments during the week for your convenience.
Since we have electronic records(coming soon), your chart and records will always be up-to-date and available to you should you need them. Because we use digital X-rays, we are capable of burning them to disc for you should you ever need copies. Having X-rays in digital form has the added benefit of having the best and quickest processor to help shorten your time spent in the office.
Our E-prescribing service will offer the convenience of having the prescription sent to your pharmacy without the need for a paper Rx, which you might lose in your wallet. This allows the pharmacy to have your prescription ready when you arrive. E-prescribing also ensures that your prescription will be filled correctly without any hand-written miscommunication with the pharmacist.
Additionally, appointments will not be moved last minute unless Dr. Frank has a true emergency. We have seen other doctors / offices cancel an entire day of patients with short notice to the patients, but we assure you that this will never be our policy.
Emergency after-hours calls will be handled directly by Dr. Frank, so you do not have to bother waiting through answering services, nurses or answering machines to get a hold of your surgeon. After all, who wants to wait around in an emergency?
Modern medicine requires constant training to keep up with the latest techniques, medication and technology. Dr. Frank stays current and evaluates the latest treatment options that apply to the foot and ankle, making the best and most cost-effective options available to you here in St. Louis. This includes the recent use of shockwave and Topaz radiofrequency coblation for chronic plantar fasciitis, Graft Jacket tendon and fat pad repair for the foot and ankle, and endoscopic nerve decompression techniques for Morton’s neuroma.
Finally, know that Dr. Frank is determined to work with you, listen to you and develop a treatment plan that works with your schedule and has your best interest at heart.
