Everyone has been considerate, helpful, and understanding. Doctor has always been straight forward and honest
Smyrna, GA |
Very poor scheduling. Very poor communication from staff. I had one visit and not going back.
Atlanta, GA |
Awful Doctor. Truly, patient well being is not his priority. Regardless, of what anyone says he is a terrible doctor. Not even willing to come see the patient. He is most definitely a "Cut and done type of surgeon." I would definitely see another doctor before having Dr. Francke operate on you or a loved one. He deserves negative stars, but unfortunately that is not an option.

Doesn't listen to patient and not very good communication skills. Not sympathetic to my condition and pain I was in. Had to wait over an hour multiple times. Would not recommend.
Carrollton, GA |
Definitely one of those doctors who want nothing to do with helping you if you aren't to the point of needing surgery. I went to him for a pinched nerve in my upper back. He did to me what he does to all his patients. Sent me over to his pt department. Said after 6 weeks, or 18 pt treatments and nearly a grand of out of pocket costs, if still in pain he will look to see where and what the problem is.

We have been extremely pleased with Dr. Eric Francke and staff. I bragged so much at Gold's gym and Chamber of Commerce that I came back by and got Dr. Francke's picture bio and took it to Chamber and Gold's for our friends! They valued my recommendation. A++ for Justin and friends at Dr. Francke's

Dr. Francke has a great bedside manner and is very caring toward his patients. He has stellar skills. I had neck surgery and he made sure my husband and I understood clearly what was about to happen and what we could expect - the good and the bad . All my follow up care with him was with tenderness and caring He truly was concerned about my health and recovery. It was one of the easiest and totally pain free experiences of survey I have ever experienced. He is an excellent surgeon.

I wish i could put no stars! By far worst experience I've had with a doctor. Total waste of time and money. Bedside mannor is terrible. I would never recommend this doctor to my worst enemy. Stay away!!
in Douglasville, GA |
He operated on my neck and fused c5 thru c7. Takes care of my back too. Excellent communication skills and professionalism. Love Dr Francie.
in Waco, GA |
I was referred to Dr Franke for an abnormal MRI that showed Cervical Spinal cord compression. He told me the way he would fix it is to go thru anteriorly and just put a bracket and fuse one level. I decided to go to a real surgeon at Emory and he surgery was for Klippel-feil syndrome. Dr Daniel Refai done the surgery and it was a very difficult surgery. I had a Posterior C-3-6 Laminectomy, Foraminotomy and fusion of the entire cervical spine! When found 4 levels w/severe compression!
