    • I have worked with Dr. Frankel for several years now and I consider myself lucky. He is an intelligent, caring, and committed professional who has helped me and my family on numerous occasions without overprescribing medications.  His dedication and wisdom are unmatched. Simply put he is a wonderful doctor.

    • My family has had the good fortune to receive Dr. Frankel’s remarkable care for several years. While there have been multiple occasions in the past in which we’ve consulted professionals, Dr. Frankel’s intelligence, sensitivity, and commitment are unmatched. Dr. Frankel is well versed in pharmacology, and reassuringly judicious when considering prescriptions. His long-standing practice is a testament to the love he clearly has for his work. Dr. Frankel ’s broad experience and finely tuned intuition allowed him to forge a productive relationship with my son where others were unable. He has stood by my family in the most challenging of situations with warmth, generosity and a tireless loyalty that I’ve never before experienced. I’ve found his professional support to be of the most rare kind, guided by honesty, humility, humor, and wisdom.

    • I have worked with Dr. Frankel for several years and found him a caring, sensitive and responsive practitioner. He shows ongoing concern re. polypharmacy and tends to order medications only as needed. I would encourage all patients to keep him or any medical practitioner up to date on current medication changes or medication sensitivities as they arise.

    • I'm the parent to 21 year old who has seen Dr Frankel on and off since their first bout with serious depression and anxiety in High School. My child does not easily open up to anyone, and has never had much success with a regular therapists. Dr. Frankel has always taken the time to try to understand my kid and help move them forward, even at times when it's difficult to get my child to share anything with anyone! Dr Frankel is insightful and intelligent as well as funny and humble. He is a wealth of knowledge and loves what he does. I appreciate him standing by my family all these years.

    • The worst! No communication skills, remembers nothing from previous sessions. Couldn't even electronically write a prescription. The worst.

    • Manipulates patients into seeing him extremely regularly (3 times per week) by putting them on high doses of addictive medications. Refuses to allow patients to decrease frequency of appointments by causing them to be dependent on those medications.
  • Dr. Ashe in San Rafael, CA – Nov 11, 2016 - healthgrades
    • I have had nothing but positive experiences with Dr. Steven Frankel and consider him one of the finest physicians in Marin County. Over the years I have had the privilege of working closely with Dr. Frankel I have shared referrals and covered his practice. His patients have consistently reflected that his dedication to their care has been exceptional. Dr. Frankel has been practicing over 35 years and is the author of five books that emphasize the importance of collaborative patient care.

    • Dr. Frankel is an empathetic, knowledgeable, and unique clinician who has helped me immensely over the past 3 years that I have worked with him. I would recommend him to my family and friends and feel confident that they would receive excellent care under Dr. Frankel's guidance.
