Why did you choose medicine?

My Godfather was a Pharmacist and I was considering pharmacy until my senior year of high school when my Grandmother had a stroke and I saw Physical Therapy work with her. Later that year I was injured playing basketball and saw the sports medicine side of Physical Therapy and became further interested. I worked as an Aide in the Physical Therapy Department at Ilion Hospital that summer and knew that is what I wanted to study.

Hobbies and Special Interests

Coaching youth sports (baseball, basketball, Track and Field).  Frank lives with his wife and 2 teenage children.  He enjoys boating and fishing.
