Very tip top care. It’s like they done this before. At 48yrs old Dr Franklin replaced my right hip January of this year. It’s now November and currently have more mobility that I had expected. I am back to work full time as a maintenance tech for a local cable company here in Augusta with currently no work restrictions. Dr Franklin and staff are truly lifesavers.

Dr. Franklin has been excellent!. I had broken my femoral neck (hip) and he listened to my desires/concerns. He ended up putting in three screws. It has been four months and everything is progressing well. I thank God, and I thank God for Dr. Franklin! He is a very good physician! Strongly recommend Dr. Franklin - a great man!

My last experience with Dr. Franklin was eye opening...not only is he a great doctor he is also a truly honest man. I currently work outside of the Augusta area and injured my Achilles, doctors around this area stated I need surgery ASAP to repair my injury. Dealing with Dr. Franklin on a separate occasion I thought in my best interest to get his opinion. Dr. Franklin recommended no surgery was necessary...I did not have the surgery! My Achilles has healed great on its owe. Highly recommended Dr
