What People Say About Dr. Joseph Franklin, MD
Reply
Very unprofessional. Was told I was paying for a special of 3 treatments for 2 areas of Ultrashape and was switched to something else. Told him my concerns and he kept saying it would be okay and it's not. The office manager is very rude. I was botched bottom line. I wish I could not give a star at all. When I disputed the charges, the office manger basically said I was paying something different. She also assassinated my character. I hate to look at myself in the mirror now.
