    Dr franco is a great cardiologist. I was lucky enough to have him do my heart cath in the hospital when I had been rushed to E.R for chest pains , later finding out it was a heart attack . After my hospital stay he came HIGHLY recommended to me , so Im very happy I chose him as my new cardiologist . He takes the time to answer all your questions and explains everything in detail without rushing you . You can certainly see he truly cares about his patients .. He is down to earth and genuine . The entire staff in the office is great aswell . I highly recommend Dr Franco and his staff ..

    I had a great experience with Dr. Franco. I am 32 and I was having chest pains. Dr. Franco did a full work up to reassure me it is something muscular. I was happy that he was willing to listen and give me the confidence to know I am ok.

    Dr. Franco is the best cardiologist on the island. He spends extra time with patients that you wouldn't find anywhere else. With wait times always at a minimum, I would never concider going anywhere else. Definitely worth a try giving him a visit. Thanks for all your help Dr. Franco.
