Melanie Frank, DO brings 30 years of experience to the medical profession. She is certified by the American Board of Family Medicine and for the past 17 years has specialized in internal medicine for treatment of patients 18 years or older. She is affiliated with Stony Brook University Hospital, where she has been on staff for the past 25 years.
Coming from a family who all pursued careers in health care, Dr. Frank knew from a young age that nothing could be more fulfilling than becoming a doctor. “Being in the position to positively affect the lives of others, potentially in need, is something no other profession could provide. Being able to ‘talk shop’ at the holiday dinner tables was just an added bonus.”
Having undergone training in osteopathic medicine, Dr. Frank’s treatment philosophy is one of a whole-body approach. She views the mind and body as interrelated, where each equally affects the other. “Using such a method,” she says, “allows for a more well-rounded and balanced approach to helping patients receive the best and most accurate care possible.” She also acknowledges that for many patients, a visit to the doctor’s office may be anxiety-inducing. “As such, I strive to make each and every one of my patients feel as comfortable as possible with compassion, care, and gentle honesty.” She creates a trustworthy environment to welcome patients with honest and open lines of communication.
Dr. Frank enjoys making meaningful connections with her patients, building long-term professional relationships with them. When not connecting with patients, she enjoys spending quality time with her family, cooking, relaxing at the beach, and traveling the world.
