I brought my son to Dr Frances and she treated his condition seriously and followed up by email and phone. I was comforted by her expertise, care, and attention.

Terrible experience--had we not switched doctors my daughter's health would have been in serious risk. The cast slipped down her leg and the doctor refused to see us again even though it was no longer covering the broken bone. Unconscionable.
