What People Say About Dr. Jerry Franklin, MD
Reply
Dr. Franklin was the attending cardiologist at Williamson Medical Center when I had a heart attack. I believe I received the best care possible and Dr. Franklin has always been attentive and personal during my regular visits. He understands peoples need for as much information as possible. I believe Dr. Jerry Franklin gives of himself and is openly frank and honest when beneficial to the patient. Dr. Franklin wants to see his patients to live healthy as long as possible and it shows.
