What People Say About Dr. Serene Francis, MD

If I could rate Dr. Francis with 10 stars I would. She is a professional who gives a thorough explanation of one's condition and completely answers all questions. I have received a series of very painless knee injections which have really helped my arthritis ridden knee joints. Dr. Francis is caring and very friendly and her staff is as well. This is the way the medical profession should be.

Dismissive doctor. Saw her in 2014 for debilitating pain but blood work was negative so she said that I had no autoimmune disorder. She gave me NSAIDs & told me to stop searching for a diagnosis. 2 years later, in severe pain, she gives me plaquenil as a trial. Later, hematologist finds out I have Hypogammaglobulinemia (immune deficiency)! New rheumy immediately says I have Seronegative Rheumatoid Arthritis & Immune deficiencies cause autoimmunity. Dr. Frances incorrectly denied correlation.

I honestly can't thank Dr Francis enough for not only really taking the time to teach me about my diseases but really truly listening to me. She is the reason I am here, alive and doing way better then I was in 2013 after she diagnosed me with mixed connective tissue disease. I've been hospitalized and not only has she come almost everyday to see me, if she can't, she will call me. She's got a heart of gold and couldn't ask for better doctor. I'm so blessed to have you as my doctor!

I have just started seeing Dr. Francis and she was a breath of fresh air. She was very thorough and listened, and professionally disagreed with my previous doctor's recommendation, and provided a understandable basis for doing so.
