He received his Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Rockhurst University in 2001 and his Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy in 2005. He has had the opportunity to work in other types of clinical settings besides his own to include St. Luke’s Plaza Northland in the neurosurgical ICU and the Rusk Rehabilitation Center as part of a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) Team.

Frank opened the doors of CORE Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation in January of 2011 where he performed the duties of physical therapist, as well as ownership/management duties. Frank has a passion for physical therapy and thoroughly enjoys what he does. His former patients frequently will swing by the office just to say hi and let him know how well they’re doing. As owner, Frank continues to take a lot of pride in the work that is done here at CORE Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation, both by himself and all members of his staff.
