I go out of my way to come to Rothman Institute to see Dr. Franks, rather than any other doctor group. I feel confident that my only child gets the best care here.

Dr. Franks has been a pleasure to work with throughout the last year. I trusted him and his recommendations for my 14 year old son when he fractured his growth plate in his shoulder.

Meeting Dr. Franks for the first time I was pleased and impressed that he was going to begin with the least invasion procedure. In just four weeks time I am showing improvement with the suggestions and procedures he has given me. I am extremely pleased with Dr. Franks and will highly recommend him to friends and family.

Dr. Franks was the first doctor to figure out the cause of my knee pain. I went four months of sleepless nights with no hope in sight. Four years later I continue to get Orthovisc knee injections (no surgery required) and my pain is manageable without surgery! Cheers to Dr. Franks for keeping me moving!

I had a troublesome injury to my shoulder. Dr. Franks got to the bottom of my problem, got me into The Training Room for some rehab and I am making great progress! I paid attention to how he addressed my issue and it was dead on. Ultimately I am very pleased

I had been experiencing excruciating pain in my right shoulder whenever I reached behind or above to grab something. I saw my primary who diagnosed bursitis and capsulitis and to take NSAIDs, chiro said the same. After two weeks it was getting worse. I saw Dr. Franks who after looking at xrays and doing quick diagnostics saw I had arthritic changes and recommended PT. After 4 weeks, I have NO PAIN and almost full mobility. Thanks to his smart and conservative approach - I avoided surgery!

Dr. Franks is simply amazing!! I took my son to several doctors in the area for treatment. None were able to diagnose him until we went to Dr. Franks. He was extraordinarily thorough and compassionate. If you are looking for a doctor whose medical knowledge is comprehensive, treats the whole person, and takes the time to treat you like a human being while you happen to be a patient , then Dr. Franks is someone you should consider visiting. His assistant Matthew was awesome too. Bravo!

Dr Franks has treated both of my daughters. My younger daughter was misdiagnosed prior to seeing Dr. Franks. When her pain in her back began again months later we saw Dr. Franks. He was able to correctly diagnos her and finally get her pain free and back into sports. Our other daughter has been a patient of his with a shoulder injury, She has had a bad shoulder for 5+ years. Through Dr Franks and the Physical Therapist he sent her to she is finally seeing improvement in her shoulder
