Great doctor and good experience with my ankle surgery!
in Huntsville, AL |
Dr. Franklin encompasses all of the qualities desired in an orthopedic surgeon. He listens and offers honest and competent opinions and advice. My care with a broken arm and reverse shoulder surgery was excellent. I love the early 7:00 am appt. times and the "no wait" time. Excellent staff and very personable.

Dr. Franklin is always so professional and always treated me so well. I truly believe that he cares about me, and that he takes the best possible care of me. He performed a rotator cuff surgery, and two finger surgeries on me - all three very well with no issues afterwards. Great Doctor who has my complete trust.
Huntsville, AL |
Dr. Franklin and his staff are very friendly, prompt and knowledgeable. I enjoy coming to his clinic because they are most always prompt and I feel that I have been thoroughly attended to even though my office time isn't long. I would recommend them to any of my friends, family or associates for orthopedic care.

Dr. FRANKLIN is a very thorough surgeon that takes time with all his patients and has the best bedside manner. He is a perfectionist which is definitely what you want in a surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone anywhere.
in Florence, AL |
He performed a hip scope - he was always professional and answered all of my questions. A+ results, highly recommended. The facility is also wonderful; longest wait time I've ever had over multiple visits was 10 minutes; most wait times were closer to 3 minutes!
in Huntsville, AL |
If you see this doctor pay close attention to your billing. I recently used this doctor and he false billed my insurance company for a procedure he did not do which costed me extra money out of pocket as well. In addition, his nurse was negligent in returning my call for a question I had about my injury. She never returned my call.
in Huntsville, AL |
Outstanding experience with Dr. Franklin. Easy to schedule; short wait time on day of visit compared to other physicians. Listens carefully. Clear and detailed explanation of his findings.
