Brief Biography for Dr. Amylynne Frankel


Dr Amylynne Frankel is a board-certified dermatologist and trained fellow in clinical dermatopharmacology.  After completing her undergraduate degree at Dartmouth College in 2003, she moved north to do her medical education at University of Vermont (UVM).  Dr. Frankel graduated from UVM Medical School in 2008.  Dr. Frankel then moved to New York, where she completed one year of medicine at Stonybrook Medical Center on Long Island.  She then completed her dermatology residency and fellowship training at the esteemed Mount Sinai Hospital on the upper east side of Manhattan.  Dr Frankel then returned north to the under-served area of Maine, where she began a medical practice serving the youngest keiki to the oldest kupuna in the community.  Having spent every year in Hawai’i since she was eight (she actually lost both of her front teeth on a trip to Maui during her first visit to the islands), she realized that her passion was to move to Hawai’i to help the under-served community in our state.  Dr Frankel lived and worked on O’ahu for several years before moving back to the mainland for family reasons.  However, the calling to return to Hawai’i was too great, and she has long desired to move back ever since leaving. Dr Frankel has particular interest in psoriasis, eczema, and acne, as well as skin surgery.  She loves treating and forming bonds with patients of all ages.
In her spare time, Dr Frankel likes to keep active.  She has run several marathons, set national and local records for weightlifting in both New England as well as Hawai’i, finds peace hiking, and is always on the hunt for the best poke.  She is also very active in animal rescue.  She is excited to come back to serve this community again.
