Truly cares about you and your family. Every patient deserves someone like Dr. Franco to make you feel like you are the only patient he has. A true professional!
in Des Moines, IA |
I appreciate his bedside manner, which includes explaining things in a fashion where I understand it, and he is on top of the latest techniques. I went to another well known facility that didn't even recommend the treatment plan that Dr. Franko did. So that made me feel like he truly dug in and found all of the options out there that he could for me. I also appreciate the kindness of his staff who are very sweet and compassionate and returned my calls promptly.
