Benjamin “Ben” Frock, MD, graduated magna cum laude from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, and particularly enjoyed his courses in neuroscience and philosophy. He then enrolled in medical school at Creighton University School of Medicine, which led him to Phoenix, Arizona, where he honed his love of psychiatry. Dr. Frock completed psychiatry residency training at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he was the recipient of the Marc H. Hollender Award for outstanding performance by a resident and member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. Dr. Frock attributes his interest in the complexity of the human condition to the numerous mentors and inspirations he has encountered along his educational path.

In his office-based practice, Dr. Frock especially enjoys combining different treatment modalities—psychotherapy, medication management, and TMS Therapy—to help patients reach their maximum potential. He is comfortable treating a range of issues, including depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety, attention deficit disorders (ADD), grief, interpersonal struggles, and difficulty adjusting to the many life changes we all may experience.

An individualized treatment plan is fundamental to Dr. Frock’s philosophy of care. He believes that we are shaped by our experiences, relationships, and loss over time. As such, all persons should have needs tailored to the moment, and treatment may include psychotherapy, medications, or a combination of both. Dr. Frock understands that not all situations require medication and enjoys providing psychotherapy for those interested. He also enjoys working with therapists of all kinds in the community to collaborate and work towards the best possible outcome.
