The office staff was rude.. The doctor herself was very rude also. I felt like she did not listen to us.. Then without even examining my daughter, she suggested she may need a medical procedure.. My child looked at her wide eyed and said, Will that hurt?. This lady looked her right in the eye and told her Yes, it will hurt alot.As a parent I was stunned.. Who says that to a kid, She was also very condescending.
I was expecting to be taken seriously. She does not listen good. ??

Dr. Francisco will not figure out the cause of your child's pain. She will only cover up the problem with pills and more pills. She gave my 12 year old anti depressants & Hyosyamine for chronic pain. Thanks to GI for Kids in Knoxville, we learned our child has food allergies. Please don't take your child to Dr. Francisco. Dr. Francisco only wanted my sick child back in school, I would leave her office feeling scolded for not sending my sick child to school.
