Dr. Frogel brought his distinguished career and practice to Hilton Head Island in 2011.
Dr. Frogel has had the unusual and special privilege of having been trained not only by the foremost psychoanalytic thinkers and psychotherapeutic practitioners in American psychiatry but also by one of the most outstanding Psychopharmacologists of the last century, Dr. Donald Klein, now Emeritus of Columbia University.
This combined experience has led Dr. Frogel to a lifetime of using talk therapy and medication therapy - either together or separately - to find the most effective ways to relieve the variety of emotional and mental disturbances found from practicing this speciality of the healing art of medicine.
Dr. Frogel was graduated Cum Laude from Bowdoin College and was graduated from the University of Geneva, Switzerland, Faculty of Medicine with Honors. Psychiatry residency where he was Chief Resident was completed at Zucker Hillside Hospital, Glen Oaks, New York (now North Shore/LIJ Hospital System-Hofstra University School of Medicine). After training Dr. Frogel established private practice in Great Neck, New York and continued practice there until 2011 when he relocated to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
Practice and Teaching
Dr. Frogel has taught young Psychiatrists in various training programs how to listen to people, to understand what they are saying as well as what they mean. He has also taught Internal Medicine Residents these same skills. Most importantly, he has helped train his students to be there for those whom they treat not only during visits to the office but during the rest of the week by phone or e-mail. That they, in being a Psychiatrist take a responsibility for a person's overall wellbeing.
