He is taking a reasonable amount time to study my illness to find out what is going on with my hip. He is having a MRI scheduled for me so he can determine the problem with the pain I’m experiencing and I trust that he will find the problem.

Dr. Franklin was through explaining that surprisingly my knee wasn't as bad as I thought it was when I made my appointment. While injecting my knee he noted there's a lot of scar tissue and it may need to be cleaned up. Follow up appointment in 3 months.

Dr Franklin always listens to what I have to say and asks appropriate questions. In this visit, he ordered X-rays and made comparisons to the previous ones. When he saw a change that could be the reason for my complaint, he explained it to me and ordered additional tests to be done at the hospital.
