Dr Franklin was thorough and did not rush. He listened and was personable. The audiologist, Abeda Mueed and the staff were terrific too. Highly recommend this practice.

Ever wanted to fire a doctor? You can! I saw Dr. Franklin in January of 2013 and I must say that I have never been so disrespected by a doctor in my life. I tried to ask intelligent questions about my condition that I had previously researched. I was well prepared to have a valuable discussion. Dr. Franklin responded with disrespectful and unhelpful answers such as "because I said so". I fired him. See a more detailed review on YELP.

I DEFINITELY WOULD NOT RECOMMEND DR. FRANKLIN TO ANYONE! HE IS ONE OF THE WORST DOCTORS I HAVE BEEN TO. I WAS IN HIS OFFICE FOR TWO AND A HALF HOURS AND SAW HIM FOR LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES. HE HAD HIS HAND ON THE DOOR READY TO LEAVE FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF MINUTES. TERRIBLE BEDSIDE MANNER. I AM A MEDICARE PATIENT WITH A SECONDARY INSURANCE AND I COULD TELL HE DID NOT WANT TO WASTE HIS TIME ON ME. I GOT NOTHING OUT OF THE VISIT. I SAW HIM FOR VERTIGO. THIS IS A WARNING TO MEDICARE PATIENTS.

Dr. Franklin is on call for my husband's surgeon. I called for assistance and have never been treated so poorly by a doctor. I decided to check his reviews to see if maybe I was overreacting. I'm not. His poor reviews speak volumes.

Prior, I talked to his office regarding billing & made clear I would pay w/ insurance and deductible provided by employer in advance administered by the insurance co. They made me fill out 13+papers. I signed under duress. 1 asked how I would pay for the claim "today" & I wrote insurance. The paperwork was accepted. After I was seen they harangued me for immediate cash payment in a non private location.Dr. prescribed a sterile +$265 antibiotic drop & and a steriod. Got steriod only, improving.

He has performed extensive surgery on my sinuses/nose/throat and all went well. I am still being seen for allergies.

Hello, I have had trouble breathing through my nose in the past and wanted to get it taken care of before the new year. I went to see Doctor Franklin and he was very helpful. He actually made everything a lot easier then I thought it would be and the end result is I can breath like never before. He?s a great doctor who cares go see him and you?ll be in great hands!! I have to say again how wonderful it is to be able to breath through my nose! Thanks Doctor Franklin
