Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

My father has had several appointments with Dr. Franklin recently. He is currently in the hospital for pneumonia, which was never diagnosed by dr. Franklin. Also had problems with meds being issued, such as prednisone, with no mitigation for severe reaction. I have called his office to and requested to speak to Dr. Franklin, he ignores request.

It's hard to review Franklin because his staff and office management are too incompetent to expedite appointments. Instead they look for red tape technicality excuses to prevent prescriptions and appointments from being set up or finalized, needlessly jeopardizing the health of the patient. The staff care zero about your health and only about pencil pushing. Worst office experience ever. Avoid. The disinterested attitudes of the staff reflect poorly on the doctor.

Staff is very unprofessional and unfriendly, with a appointment still waiting over 1 hour! Staff don't know what they doing.

I have been going to Dr. Franklin for over 10 years but my last appointment with him was just that, my last. I've spent the last two weeks trying relentlessly to have a prescription filled and have failed because his staff refuses to take the time to speak with my insurance company and answer a few simple questions. This is not the first time I've had this problem either. The staff is utterly incompetent! I've already found my brother a new doctor (I'm his caregiver). Now it's my turn!
