Review for Dr. Franklin

De. Dorvilus is detailed. Here doesn't take your medical history for granted, no matter how minor. He clearly explains his procedures to the patient and asks questions to be sure that the patient understands him.

Review for Dr. Dorvilus

meds were not call in and the front desk was very hatefully and said no one else could sign off on meds. We spend 30.00 for co pay and a lot for ins. this is not the way to treat people that need their meds

I have referred everyone who asks me if I know a good family physician and I always give the Dr Dowis name and office number. He is thorough with each patient and makes sure the patient questions are always answered. He goes above and beyond in patient care and I am pleased to be his patient.
