Dr. Frenkel was born in Fairfield Connecticut.  His father is also an ophthalmologist. After graduating from Washington University in St. Louis, he obtained an M.D. degree from the University of Connecticut.  Next he was an intern at St. John’s Merci Hospital in St, Louis and completed his ophthalmology residency at the world renowned Ochsner Hospital in New Orleans.  

Dr. Frenkel is Board Certified in Ophthalmology by the American Board of Ophthalmoloy. He opened The Cataract and LASER Center in 1988. Since then, the Cataract and Laser Center has evolved to become AAPECS Eye care.  However, the initial concept of a unique eye care center for the residents of Hampton Roads offering the latest in technology and surgical procedures has not changed.  Dr. Frenkel decided early on that he would not offer routine eye care services, glasses or contact lenses.  Instead, he receives referrals from other doctors who want the latest equipment and techniques for their patients who need more advanced care and/or surgery.  Dr. Frenkel lives in Virginia Beach with his wife Julie.  They have six children and many animals.
