THE BEST!
My two boys have been under the care of Dr. Franciosi for 12 years for the diagnosis, treatment, and management of EOE. He is kind, empathetic, and thoughtful. We are so thankful for all of the knowledge, cutting edge treatment, and care he has brought to Nemours. Dr. Franciosi looks at the whole child when working with the family to make the best health care decisions possible. He is thoughtful about helping kids be kids while navigating life with chronic illness. He listens to the child, and the parent a skill that we value very much. Dr. Franciosi also collaborates with other Dr.'s and clinicians from different specialities to address all aspects of health, and illness to provide the best care possible. My son wants to study medicine in college, because of the excellent care he has received from Dr. Franciosi.

We met Dr. Franciosi when my son was very ill with an initial presentation of IBD. He took him for diagnostic colonoscopy, which at the time was a high risk procedure given how sick he was, and promptly gave us a diagnosis and started the right treatment. This was without doubt the scariest time in my life, and it was so reassuring to have a physician that could answer all our questions, recommend the latest scientific evidence based treatment and just give the comfort and hope so needed at the time. He did all of this competently, while keeping a good sense of humor that was able to normalize our situation and engage my teenager in the healing process. He has supported my kid in his endeavors outside of clinic, like making plans in case there is a flare-up while traveling, or accommodating his busy school calendar when scheduling appointments. We are very lucky to have him, and we hope when it’s time for my son to move on to an adult GI doctor, that they would be just as good!

Exceptional care.
My sons diagnosis came as a complete shock to all of us. He was extremely sick. His remission is due to the exceptional expertise, care and support. He treated my son with respect, humor and compassion. Every question is answered and every concern addressed. My gratitude will forever exist to him for helping my son to heal and learn how to manage his diagnosis.

Dr. James Franciosi from Nemours Children's Health has cared for my daughter's IBD for seven years and counting. Since day one, Dr. Franciosi has been friendly and compassionate and has cared for my daughter as if she was his own. He never rushes us at a clinic and is always ready to listen to my long list of questions. He patiently answers our questions until my daughter and I understand and feel comfortable. We traveled overseas, and my daughter had a flare; Dr. Franciosi called me directly, guided me carefully, and provided the reassurance I needed to care for my daughter until we returned. That phone call meant so much to me. Dr. Franciosi always makes my daughter feel comfortable and safe under his care. We are grateful to have him as our daughter's gastroenterologist. She is doing very well and thriving because of him; we are thankful to have found Dr. Franciosi and Nemours to care for our daughter's complex medical needs.

I wish I could give 0 stars. Please avoid taking your babies to this guy. He is the worst doctor I have ever seen. Horrible bed side manner, does not explain anything. Acts very entitled. I have never made a complaint against a doctor before seeing this complete idiot. After informing Nemours of the terrible visit, James called me and told me he was NOT sorry. I want others to avoid the experience I had. Do not take your children to this doctor! I am not sure how he is a pediatric doctor to be honest with his trash attitude.

Dr Franciosi is awesome. He is so nice and pearsonable. He is patient and will take as much time as you need to explain and discuss sections or options with you. He is the best.

He is perhaps the worst doctor out there. He treated my daughter and was the most arrogant, condescending, and unprofessional person I have ever encountered. He ordered countless unnecessary procedures that actually harmed a three year old and refused to give us test results even when asked. Worst of all he tries to bully and intimidate patients with threats of contacting DCF. Avoid this doctor at all costs.
