My husband & I have been going to Dr. Francis for several years for our skin issues. I had melanoma on my face in 2005 & he gives me a thorough examination yearly. He takes time to listen. We are never rushed thru our visits. I would recommend Dr. Francis to anyone looking for a good dermatologist.

I have been a patient for several years and I find Dr. Francis to be an outstanding doctor. He is always well prepared and familiar with my medical history. He is extremely professional and spends whatever time necessary to answer my questions as well as taking an interest in my personal activities. His soft spoken and unassuming nature is very comforting.

I have been seeing Dr Francis since 1975, when I developed cystic acne. We used to have a standing weekly appointment, and he would find me dermatologists in other cities when I was on vacation, or worked out of town. What a competent/caring doctor....especially for a late teen/young adult trying to put their best face forward in the world. After two courses of then-new Accutane, I have not needed care on any regular basis. Still, I needed a visit, yesterday. Same excellent care. Thank you
