Dr. Franks performed da Vinci robotic hysterectomy approximately 5 years ago. I was discharged from the hospital with a fever. Return to ER with 104 temp and 5 different strains of bacteria. I am now recovering from “post-surgical hernia repair” where a large tear was left open inside the umbilical site where surgery was performed. The scarring on my abdomen is unsightly. I deeply regret having the da Vinci method and Dr. Franks. I did not return for post op and cannot recommend -??

Dr. Franks is wonderful. She is knowledgeable, straight forward and compassionate. Excellent surgeon.

I have been married for a long, long time; taking care of my own birth control choices, etc with NO PROBLEMS. I was surprised with the inquisition regarding my birth control choices and asking how recently I've been tested for STD's. She said she was trying to be thorough, but didn't pertain to my situation. I also complained of a little pain in my side, and she smack-labeled me with Irritable Bowel without any testing, etc. Not cool and had negative consequences with obtaining new insurance.

Worst gyro experience I've ever had. Went there because of the good reviews on this website but in my experience she was condescending and disinterested in my concerns. She just sent me a bunch of medications without even explaining to me what they were of what they were for and when I went to pick them up they weren't even covered by insurance, they were very expensive, and top it all they were the same medicine my other doctors had already sent (which she had complained about). Not going back.

Just leaving Dr. Frank's office now and she provided excellent service and had great bedside manner. I went off her healthgrades review with establishing a new women's healthcare provider and the reviews are correct. Having worked in the medical field for the last 6yrs along side physicians, I know what to expect. Dr. Franks and her staff were professional, patient and thorough. I am new to California and pleased with my choice of physician. I would recommend Dr. Frank's to others.
