I found him to be totally impersonal, abrupt, almost annoyed, and very anxious to move on to the next patient. I had a cancerous lesion removed by him. He totally lacked bedside manner. I would NOT recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Franco and his nurse Jennifer are what a medical practice should be all about. I walk in with my 15month old and am greeted with a very nice staff as soon as I walked through the front door. When they realized that my appointment was made with the wrong doctor, they immediately try to correct it. Jennifer gave me her personal number to call with any questions and then Dr. Franco called me personally to tell me when my son's surgery was scheduled. Couldn't be any happier.
