What People Say About Dr. Albert Franchi, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I have been a patient of Dr. Franchi’s for the past few years for a number of medical issues that I have suffered with. Dr. Franchi was instrumental in explaining the process and was able to walk me through every step of the way with great concern and compassion. I can’t say enough about my experience and the outcome of my results. I really thought that I would have to suffer in pain for the rest of my life. Instead, I am grateful to Dr. Franchi that I am now able to continue my daily activities without dealing with pain and I am able to continue on with my active lifestyle. Eternally grateful.

Dr. Franchi lacked compassion towards the student athletes he treated, he failed to follow up and athlete injuries and grossly misdiagnosed an injury that resulted in needing surgery. I could not recommend a doctor any less than him, he cares little to none about his patients

I believe that no student athlete should be allowed to see Dr. Franchi. He is uncaring, unqualified ,and spends very little time with your child. He gives no follow up after the visit and does not request a follow up, which he should. He misdiagnosed my child with a sprained wrist and did not request to see him after that diagnoses. In the end he was very off with his knowledge and my son has a torn ligament and needs to have it surgically repaired. This could’ve have been detected earlier had this doctor known what he was doing.

I went to Dr. Franchi for plantar fasciitis. I had tried EVeRYTHING!!! I was so depressed. I had continuous pain and my life had changed drastically from very active to avoiding activities I used to love. My husband had heard a radio ad for Dr Franchi and prolotherapy injections . I had 5 injections and boom GONE was the pain. I got my life back. It was still painful during the healing time , I think about 4 months but it worked!!! I am so grateful and everyday to walk pain free!

I would NOT recommend this doctor,from whom I received prolotherapy injections. They did not help me. In addition, the prolotherapy was out of pocket, yet they billed my insurance for an office visit and I just paid a bill I should not have received. I regret ever seeing this doctor..

I have seen Dr. Franchi for a knee injury and also for tendonitis. I cannot say enough good things about him. Professional, knowledgeable, great bedside manner, takes time with you and actually listens to you. Never had a problem scheduling appointments, even in an emergency.
