    I have been putting off having a double hernia surgery for over 2 years. When the pain started to be more noticeable, I went to see a surgeon. Dr. Francois helped me overcome my fear and anxiety to go ahead & set a surgery date. I was undecided on the Robotic surgery and wanted to consider all options available to me. After hearing that Dr. Francois has performed many surgeries using the Robotic system and Robotics was part of her medical training I decided to go with the Robotic Surgery. Dr. Francois's assurance in pre op made me feel like all was going to be alright & it was. The surgery went well & I only missed two weeks of work. Thanks Dr. Francois and staff! RK

    Still in shock after a malignant melanoma diagnosis in late Nov 2020, I googled general surgeons in BN and chose Dr. Francois from a lengthy list. I made the right decision! Just as the reviews indicated, she took time to explain the procedure and the potential risks, and she answered all of our questions. I found Dr. Francois to be intelligent, compassionate, and down to earth. Additionally, her staff was friendly and very efficient.

    I recently had a consult with Dr. Francois and had an excellent experience. She was approachable, kind, and explained everything in a concise manner. I did not feel rushed, and I could tell she takes a great interest in making sure her patients are comfortable and have their concerns addressed. She left me feeling that I will be in very capable hands when it comes to my surgery.

    Dr. Francois is absolutely amazing. I don't think I can say enough great things about her. When you are dealing with breast cancer, you need to know you have the best team of doctors who have your best interest in mind. Dr. Francois has gone out of her way to help me get the answers I need and to make sure I am comfortable with treatment plans. She is so friendly, smart and beautiful inside and out! So glad to have her on "my team."

    I just recently had my first consult with Dr Francois. I was quite impressed with the amount of time she spent with me and her ability to kindly answer all of my questions. I have had several surgeries in the past and Dr Francois’s approach was very different from other surgeons I’ve met. She took hand written notes ( in legible handwriting!!!) and drew easy to decipher diagrams describing my surgical plan. I have NEVER seen any doctor do that before. The notes and drawings were for ME to take home so that I’d have a better understanding of my treatment plan. I’m very impressed that in a world where everyone is in such a big hurry, that she would take the time to ensure that I was fully informed.
