Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Franco "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."

Dr. Franco is wonderful and everyone that works in the office is so nice and helpful. My husband had surgery and they were very through explaining everything. Took their time and also gave the same instructions in written form. Always so pleasant & helpful when you call.

The office staff of Dr. Franco in Cranbury are rude, unhelpful, unresponsive and have no sense of urgency. On more than more occasion we have had bad experiences with this office and would not recommend this doctor or practice based on our experiences.
