What People Say About Dr. Michael Franklin, MD

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Franklin, who I saw on very short notice because my regular ENT doctor was booked solid that week. It's not easy to have to bring someone new up to speed on a complex medical history, but I was really impressed with how efficiently he got to the relevant details while still answering all my questions thoroughly and not rushing me. His staff are really helpful and accessible too. I've never reviewed a doctor before - that's how impressed I was.

I saw Dr. Franklin in January of 2015, because of recurring sinus infections. I had intense facial pain, headaches, and generally felt run down. My primary care doctor tried antibiotics and other meds with no luck. Dr. Franklin spent time with me and listened to my issues. After a CT scan, he recommended sinus surgery. The results have been amazing and my quality of life has significantly improved. I highly recommend you see Dr. Franklin for any ear, nose, and throat problems, especially sinus!
