Dr. Francis is AMAZING!! I have been a patient of hers for over 10 years. She has made me feel comfortable and at home every time I've gone in to see her. She removed a scary spot that I had about 10 yrs ago and since then, I go back yearly for check ups. She has gone above and beyond for me, and now that I have small children, she has seen both of them and gone above and beyond for them as well. One of my 4 yr olds, needed to have a spot looked at and removed during Covid. Dr. Francis went out of her way to make sure that he was seen and that he and I were comfortable with the situation and plan. I feel that I can ask her any questions. Her staff is equally amazing and helpful. My family and I are so lucky to have her as our provider. Thank you Dr. Francis! You are the BEST!!!!

Dr. Francis is a wonderful doctor! She really takes her time to hear out my issues and addresses them appropriately. She even followed up with me personally to see how I was doing since our visit! I have recommended her to friends and family and will continue to recommend her. Thanks Dr. Francis!!

I have been with Dr. Francis for roughly 5 years and its been going down hill year after year, she is negligent, short sited and has the bedside manner of the backside of a horse. Example: Apparently the medication I am on requires me to see her every 6 months and have a TB test once a year. I guess I should have learned this at the medical school I went to. Oh wait, i'm not a doctor. So I saw her at the end of 2017. Her office was suppose to contact me to schedule the follow up appointment that never took place. She continually wrote the script for me for 2 years without seeing me. Then blames me for her malpractice. and has been taking it out on me ever since. If anyone should be upset it is me for her negligently writing a script year after year that potentially but my life at risk by not following procedures and guidelines put in place for that drug. And that is just the icing.

Dr. Francis is fantastic. I have seen her a few times for different matters and really love her vibe. She seems to care and really listened to my concerns. Would absolutely recommend her to anyone. I also love her office and the staff, very friendly.

I have been a patient of Dr. Francis's for 14 years, along with several members of my immediate and extended family (ranging in age from 10-75). Dr. Francis is very kind and knowledgeable and always makes me feel welcome and at ease (even during embarrassing skin exams)! She is very thorough and takes time answering questions. I also appreciate that she does not sell products in her office. I recommend her without reservation!

Starting seeing Dr. Francis about 10 years ago and my children saw her as well -- mostly for acne. The last 2 years of visits, there was definitely a change in her methods. She didn't even look at my skin on my last visit and told me that I really didn't have acne -- that it was pretty much psychological and I needed to see a therapist. Not sure what happened with her judgement but I've since been treated successfully by another dermatologist for yes, acne.

I have been seen and treated by dermatologists for more than 30 years. Imagine my delight when I met and was examined by someone who LISTENED, looked in my eyes, and gave me hope. Psoriasis is not a glamorous nor debilitating disease (for me not for all) but by it's nature can wear one down over a lifetime. I am horrified by the costs of all the treatments, this is an area where Dr. Francis and her staff are willing to "go to bat" for the patient--medical skill PLUS caring--found it.

Great doctor! I have seen her for years as have both of my children for a variety of skin issues. I recently had my parents get an appointment for a skin check and she found a cancerous growth on my father's scalp. Her bedside manner is great and she always takes all the time I need to explain everything. The office has a great staff, not only the doctor but the nurses and receptionists too. It can take a while to get an appointment but she is worth the wait!

At my follow up appointment she was in a rush and didn't even care to check my chart (she didn't know what meds I was on and for how long I was on them for, even though she prescribed them). She switched me to a very high dose of spironolactone even though the normal starting dose is 4 times lower. I only found out a few months later after I developed nasty side effects and a different Doctor realized that it can be attributed to spironolactone. I would never recommend her to anyone.

I went to Dr. Francis about four years ago, because of an unusual rash. She was very thorough, knowledgeable and actually suggested that I might have celiac disease (which it turned out to be!). She was also wonderful in followup, taking the time to call me with my test results, etc. Her bedside manner is wonderful and she has a great sense of humor!

Excellent care given with great compassion and thoroughness. I am always nervous going to any doctor and she always makes me feel at ease even if I have to have something removed or treated. She gives a very thorough skin exam. I occasionally have to wait but she gives me all the time I need to address all of my concerns. I recommend her to all my friends and family, and a big plus is that the office doesn't try to sell you any products or services unlike some other local offices!
