      I never got an appointment. I've tried several times to make an appointment without success. I call only to reach one person who has to transfer me to appointments. This person never picks up and will not return a phone call for one of the several messages I've left.

      Dr. Franco made me feel very comfortable when normally I get anxiety going to doctors, He spent over 20 minutes with which was surprising because I am use to physicians spending under 5 minutes. He seemed knowledgeable in Narcolepsy which many sleep specialist are not. His office staff was very nice and got my medication in my pharmacy quickly. In he past it took longer because my insurance always required a prior authorization and I was use to waiting over 2 week with my other sleep specialist.

      I have seen Dr. Franco with issues for narcolepsy. I have had problems in the past with other doctors with little knowledge. He spent over 20 minutes with me concerning my issues and made me feel very comfortable. I also like that he does not require visits to keep up with appointments, but only schedule when we need him. My last doctor made me come in every 3 months to keep up a prescription which cost a lot of money which gave me no added benefits. I felt like he was very knowledgeable.

      Does not listen at all, tries to over talk you. will look at you like you are nuts when describing whats going on with yourself, so be careful if you are embarrassed to talk about your issues, cause you will probably leave crying like i did. Had a very BAD attitude over all, felt rushed like i was just wasting his time. In all my years i can honestly say this was close the the worst experience, i already was tired, stressed, and didn't feel good. His office staff was very nice, this guy WAS NOT!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
