If becoming New York’s top dermatologist wasn’t a feat big enough, Dr. Paul Frank has pushed the envelope in the field of cosmetic dermatology and has become one of the most successful and well known in the industry. Born and raised in Manhattan, Dr. Frank still resides mainly in NYC, although he does have offices in The Hamptons and Miami as well. Expanding his reach and focus, Dr. Frank has created his own private skin care line called PFRANKMD, has opened skincare salons, and has even partnered with Japan’s largest skincare and technology company, MTG, as a consultant. From giving his patients the best of the best, to showing off his roller disco skills, Dr. Frank wants to “enjoy the ride” that is his life.
