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.

Thoroughly reviewed my paperwork and knew why I was visiting. Made her recommendations after listening to everything I said. Appointment was made for an injection in my hip after explaining side effects, procedure and follow-up.

I went to Dr. Franz for an epidural for my 2 herniated discs and she was fantastic! She was very thorough in explaining what to expect and used state of the art technology and excellent bedside manner during the procedure to make it a painless experience!

In one simple word she is "AWESOME ! " I have highly recommended her to many people and always will. As a patient she has shown on going interest and concern over and above all doctors that I have had pertaining to her field of practice. She always greets you with a smile and leaves you with a smile and never rushes you during your appointment seeing her. North East Spine & Sports Medicine are so lucky to have suck a nice person (doctor) being part of their staff.

Dr Franz treated me for a quadricep muscle tear over the summer. She performed PRP treatment in her Point Pleasant office to help it heal faster. Using ultrasound guidance, she injected my own plasma onto the tear. Everything about the procedure was fantastic; she was extremely knowledgeable and had a great bedside manner explaining everything about this new technology works. The results were amazing - 2 months later I was able to run a 1/2 marathon pain free. I highly recommend Dr Franz

I have been a patient of Dr. Franz for more than 7 years. She has always been the most helpful physician I go to. She listens, offers real help, and is amenable to therapies that don't just push pills at you. I followed her from her previous practice and at Northeast Spine I have also found wonderful physical therapy and acupuncture as well. Dr. Franz always makes you feel that she cares.

Dr Franz is an outstanding doctor. I struggled with back issues for many years. Other doctors were able to help me, but never completely. I turned my care over to Dr Franz and her team and I gradually experienced healing! Dr Franz is caring and compassionate, but above all, she knows her stuff. I haven't been back in nearly a year because I feel great! Thank you Dr Franz!
