Patient Comments (6)
in Meadville, PA |
I had a pretty bad experience with Dr. Francis. He was condescending, aloof and difficult to communicate with. The office was always jammed packed with people that were pill seekers in my estimation. Also, despite having excellent insurance, I was made to pay $70 out-of-pocket for months. I eventually worked with my insurance company and demanded a refund for about $340 worth of frivolous expenditures. I was given the refund after much difficulty, and then demanded to return the refund!

he wouldn't listen to me about medication causing serious side effects. he seems to prescribe klonopin to most of his patients. p.s. why are all the appointments written with pencil in a notebook when a computer is available?

I would not recommend this man at all. He is arrogant and unpersonable. He doesn't listen to concerns and refused to take me off a medication that was causing negative side effects because he felt that I needed to be on it. He told me that therapy is pointless and helps no one. He doesn't even take a person's weight into consideration when prescribing dosage. He made hurtful comments about my diagnosis. He even failed to respond to a subpoena from a federal court regarding my medical records.

He is rude to my kid, and the receptionist does not take credit for co-pay nor gave you change when I gave her a 20 dollars bill. She asked me to go out to break that 20 bucks so i went to Valesky's to shop!
