Learn about Dr. Franco

Care Philosophy

I discuss my surgical recommendations very specifically with patients; their thorough understanding is very important in their care. I explain the goals and risks of every procedure, verify their understanding of same, and have open dialogue answering any questions or concerns the patient may have. Each patient then meets with a member of my professional nursing staff, for "pre-operative teaching", thus furthering the patient's understanding of the procedure and their role in it to facilitate their recovery.

I would absolutely recommend Dr. Franco to anyone!!! He did an excellent job with my surgery and his office staff is so knowledgeable, kind and compassionate. I was hospitalized after my colon surgery and I felt supported every step of the way. The staff answered any questions I had when I called and let me know the doctor was available to see me if I was unsure about anything during my recovery. Dr. Franco is an intelligent, kind man with a great nursing crew.

Dr. Franco is what a doctor should be-knowledgeable, compassionate and kind. He took as much time with me as needed during each visit and that was deeply appreciated. His staff was just as thoughtful and kind and treated you like family. I highly recommend Dr. Franco who is a true professional and gentleman.

From our first visit, in a February snow storm, to yesterday, our last post-operative visit, Dr. Franco and his staff have been wonderful. We appreciate your surgical skills Dr. Franco and especially your kindness and professionalism. Hernia surgery was not on my list of things I would choose to do, but Dr. Franco's skill and caring made the process easier than I thought, and tolerable. I was not frightened and felt so much at ease from the moment my wife and I met you and your excellent staff.
