Dr. Francis was very down to earth. He addressed all my concerns in a very caring and professional manner. My appointment was on time...no sitting around in the waiting room or exam room. I was seen promptly. I have to admit, I have NEVER had that experience at any of my other doctor's appointments. I highly recommend this practice.

Good exam by Dr. Francis waiting time is entirely too long. Had a 1020 appointment didnt get to see him until 1110. To long to wait. Otherwise ok. Staff freindly & efficient but sitting in the waiting room is too long i guess that is why it is called that

I have been seeing Dr. Francis for many years. He is professional, knowledgeable and attentive to my needs. I can always rely on his advise. He is also cognizant of the costs of medications and tailors his prescriptions to account for this. While I normally don't recommend doctors to others, I have recommended Dr. Francis to those who have inquired.
Hi Thank you for the positive feedback. I appreciate it very much.
