Patient Comments (1)
in Fort Lauderdale, FL |
With a wrong move, I hurted my shoulder rotator and went thorough tremendous pain. Dr. DeFranco has been recommended by 2 doctors. The appointment went very fast what relieved me of my shoulder pain. Dr. DeFranco is always available, and goes out of his way to “medical problem solve” using all of his knowledge to offer the best appropriate medical solution. It was such a welcome relief to encounter this doctor . He asked me questions and really listened to the answers, explained his diagnosis,
