In 2007, he was again honored and chosen by other Kansas City allergists to receive the Allergy & Immunology “Super Doctor” award and published in KC Magazine. He was the first allergy and immunology specialist to receive this special designation in KC; for each year 2010, 2011and 2012 he has been identified again as a "Super Doctor" by KC Magazine. Dr. Frankel has also been selected by patients for the second year in a row to receive "The Patient's Choice Award" for 2009, a designation provided by Castle & Connolly.
