Dr. Franck preformed a c1/c2 fusion on me several years ago & it was & is a complete disaster. He installed a screw on both sides of my neck. One of the screws actually was placed in the wrong spot & was hitting a nerve causing severe pain. Because of this pain I had to have another surgeon remove the screw. Please, please don't let this guy touch you. He is the worst of the worst & should not practice medicine in my opinion.

I do not recommend this doctor. He did my back surgery and sent me home with no antibiotics no pain meds no physical therapy. I ended up having fluids running out my back which he did nothing until a month later when I ended up with a second surgery which showed I had mersa. I endorsed four months of a pick line to have iv meds 4 times a day. I live my now in chronic pain and have to depend on others for help. Please get a second opinion.

After 10 years of pain and symptoms I FINALLY found a doctor who has access to a DMX and Upright MRI. I have only seen Dr. Franck on 1 visit and I was impressed. He was finally able to explain my cervical problem and give me an accurate diagnosis. He spent 3hrs with me. I find that remarkable. He was worth every penny. He was frank, precise and explained my scans in great detail. He even explained what would be involved in surgery. I am grateful to finally have answers.

Dr. Franck was my surgeon several years ago. I had fusion from C-2 to C-6. I healed quickly and was very thankful that he was my Dr..

He spent a great deal of time going over my history, doing a physical exam and reviewing all of my images. He went through the images and helped me understand what is wrong and how he could fix it. Dr. Franck is extremely thorough and understanding. He truly cares for his patients and wants to help them. I am so glad I finally found a doctor who didn't just tell me no.
