About Me

As a primary care physician, I have the opportunity to establish relationships with both children and adults. I see my patients as people first and patients second. I apply a holistic approach when addressing a patient’s emotional and mental needs in addition to physical needs. I have the best job in the world, helping others live happy and healthy lives.

I love working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because of the vast pool of resources and support at my disposal. I plan to work on more quality improvement initiatives focused on lifestyle and obesity medicine. The academic medical center offers a friendly, yet professional, atmosphere where I can continue to evolve as a primary care physician.

In my free time, I enjoy camping, hiking and spending as much time as possible outdoors with my husband and dog.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 10/25/2021, Dr. Frank has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
