Since 1997, he has also been serving as the Clinical Director of the Collaborative Ocular Melanoma Society, and as a board member of the Diabetes Resource Center at Piedmont Hospital.

A 1990 graduate of the University of Illinois College of Medicine, Dr. Frank went on to serve his internship at AMITA Health Saint Joseph Hospital Chicago in 1991.

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. Ophthalmologists are experts in the diseases, functions, and anatomy of the eye. They may provide routine care such as vision testing, as well as prescribe and fit eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, ophthalmologists are also surgeons. They repair traumatic injuries to the eye and perform cataract, glaucoma, and corneal surgery.
