Dr. Franklin did my brain surgery last year. I had a very complicated brain tumor on my brain stem. I came to know about Dr. Franklin thru my original neurologist, who had told me he wanted me to go see Dr. Franklin. I went thru with the surgery and I stand here today to testify that this man is definitely sent from heaven. Thank you Dr. Franklin to u and ur staff for making me feel at ease and for giving me a new life. ??

Dr. Franklin is an AMAZING neurosurgeon. He helped guide us through a very challenging situation with our son. He is not only an extremely talented surgeon, he was an excellent source of support and comfort to our family and spent a great amount of time consulting with us. I could see that he not only has a passion for what he does so well, but also has compassion for the patients and families that he works with. I am so grateful that he was our surgeon.

Dr Franklin will give you a detailed understanding of his findings in words that you can understand . I never feel like he is trying to rush off to another patient , he always makes sure my questions are thoroughly answered before I leave the office . Easy to get appointments on an urgent basis once you are a patient . Compassionate and friendly office staff.
