Patient Comments (2)
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
