Dallas, GA |
Have seen Dr Franks on several occasions, everything from a pulled muscle in my back to strep throat. He has always been very kind and thoroughly checking me out during my visit. I would consider Dr Franks my regular Dr because of the ability to see him when I'm sick. Dr Franks is a true asset to the Cullman community.

INCOMPETENT. He suggested treatment for my fever, cough, nose and chest congestion before he examined me stating out of 50 people who walked through his door 35 had my symptoms. He was terse, lacked compassion, and came across as arrogant. He offered EITHER 2 shots OR pills & if that didn't work I should return 4 further treatment. I chose shots (antibiotic & steroid). Within 5 days was worse. Visited different doctor who explained that I needed antibiotic pills for several days + shot.
