    michael h k. June 14, 2020
  • This week I saw Dr. Ellen Frankel. I had a list of concerns. She addressed everyone including taking off a growth on my eyelid, painlessly. No swelling or bruising at all after. I suffer from easily bruised skin. A bruise can last for months. My skin is also very dry. Dr. Frankel recommended I try two products they sell there. I am beyond thrilled to report that DerMend, mature skin solutions, has practically erased my big bruises, in two days!! I also purchased ISDIN hydration that leaves my skin silky soft. The products they sell there really work. For the first time in years I am at ease wearing a bathing suit to the beach.

    Nancy T. June 12, 2020

  • Sunday I burned my abdomen and foot while taking a turkey from the oven. I quickly checked for dermatologists who provided tele med appointments. Found Dr. Frankel extremely knowledgeable and professional. She immediately called my pharmacy with a script for my burns. Had barely hung up when I received a text from pharmacy imforming me that my script was ready for pick-up. The silvidine cream soothed my burns and by next day except for blistered area and foot, skin was back to normal. Dr. Frankle checked the next day to see how I was doing and provided further information as to how to treat skin. She is tops in my book!

    Catherine . May 26, 2020
  • Thank you for taking care of me. My rash is fading and no longer itchy. You are a genius!

    Geraldine R. May 26, 2020
  • Just finished my daughter’s tele-health appointment with Dr Frankel and am absolutely impressed with how professionally and efficiently the visit went. Dr Frankel was able to examine her condition and prescribe the needed treatment- all from the safety of our home. I certainly would do this again and highly recommend it.

  • Matthew F. May 8, 2020
  • I attended a telehealth appointment with Dr. Ellen Frankel and not only did she accurately diagnose my problem, but she also recommended a product and my skin has never looked better. While I was previously nervous about the accuracy of Telehealth appointments, Dr. Frankel's expertise and professionalism should quash any nerves about a telehealth appointment. If you need a dermatologist, she should be your choice.

    Jacob W. May 8, 2020
  • I requested an appointment online and within hours, Dr. Frankel called to set up a tele-appointment. I am so grateful for her efficiency and willingness to treat me through a video call. The tele-appointment was as thorough as if I were sitting in the examining room!

    Alyson D. April 29, 2020
  • Dr. Frankel goes above and beyond for all her patients. I have been her patient since I was 10 years old and am now 31. She always has my health and best interest at heart. I drive from Boston to be seen by her.

    Jennifer H. March 22, 2020
  • I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Ellen Frankel. Not only was she super friendly, to both my 19 month old son and I, but also diagnosed my sons’ extremely dry skin condition in about 2 seconds flat. She looked at him, explained what I needed to do & said “his skin will be completely fine in no time”. I must admit I was a bit skeptical. When I tell you I have tried EVERY lotion, emollient etc. out there ...I REALLY have!! And not a single one helped his skin AT ALL! Well fast forward & just as Dr. Frankel said, his skin is completely fine. I started to notice a difference in about 2 days. I still am in awe & we couldn’t be happier! She really is the best of the best!

    Alicia M. March 5, 2020
  • I have been a customer of Dr. B for many years. His concern, treatment and follow up have been great. I recently had my daughter in to see Dr. Frankel for a rash on her face. Dr. Frankel took her right in with great concern for a teenager with a face issue. Her follow up and concern for her has been extraordinary. I know why DR. F has such a great reputation now. Thanks.

    David P. March 4, 2020
  • As a retired healthcare CEO, I did my research before choosing Dr Frankel as my dermatologist. I have been grateful for the quality of care that I receive and appreciative of the friendly staff. I highly recommend Dr Frankel and her team.

    Bernie L. March 2, 2020
  • My mother had a "rash" that was spreading all over her body . I called a dermatology office in East Greenwich and they didn't have an opening for 6 wks! I took the appt but my mom was going crazy with the itching so I called Dr. Frankels office they got us in the next day! I cancelled the other appt and jumped at this one ,soooooo glad I did the dr new exactly what it was as soon as she looked at it she ordered what we needed at the pharmacy we picked it up that afternoon . My mother was so much more comfortable that night and the next morning What A Difference! It's a weight off my familys shoulders knowing our mom feels so much better. We can't thank Dr. Frankel and all of her staff enough ! Would Highly recommend

    Lynda A. February 27, 2020
  • Despite the negative reviews I’ve read on several sites I decided to give this establishment a try. Much to my surprise I was able to obtain an appointment as a new patient within the week. As a busy mother of three I have limited time to squeeze in a little tlc for myself. I have been dealing with skin issues most of my adult life. I’m not going to get much into the shame and embarrassment of having to wear long sleeved clothing in a hot summer day while cheering on my sons at the soccer field has caused me; in addition to my day to day living. But I will speak upon the unexpected results I have seen in the sort time as a patient at this office. I was apprehensive to explore a biological drug and after much research and having faith in what Dr. Frankel was advising I decided to give it a chance. The results are astonishing. I feel like a woman again. There’s no dollar amount that can be put on my level of confidence. I will forever be greatful to Dr. Frankel, her friendly and efficient staff that go out of their way to make my life a little easier. As I walk in I am treated with a smiling face that says hi Mrs. Andrews. Do these type of doctors office still exist? I even made the mistake in thinking I didn’t require a referral when someone in the billing department went out of their way to call my primary doctor to obtain my referral so I could be seen that day. Knowing my costly medication will be covered by having a prior authorization processed is always a relief. I just can’t say enough about this office, I highly recommended that you give it a try. #busysoccermom #skinisnolongeranissue #repeatcustomer

  • The customer service/receptionist staff is the friendliest, funniest and most caring staff I've probably met in my entire life. Stephanie is also probably the nicest doctor I've ever had for anything in my life especially for my skin. I actually look forward to going to my appointments just because of the receptionists. They are incredibly loving and accepting and treat me with the greatest kindness and respect.
