Hollender Award for outstanding performance by a resident and was honored to be inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. Dr. Frock attributes his interest in the complexity of human condition to the numerous mentors and inspirations he has encountered along his educational path. His expertise encompasses a number of issues including depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety, attention deficit disorders, grief, interpersonal struggles, as well as difficulty adjusting to the many life changes we all may experience.


As The Happy Hour’s Medical Director, Dr. Frock supports our philosophy of approachable, individualized care. He believes that we are shaped by our experiences, relationships, and loss over the course of time. As such, all persons should have needs tailored to the moment and treatment may include psychotherapy, medications, or a combination of both. He enjoys working with therapists of all kinds in the community to collaborate and work towards the best possible outcome.
