Dr. Franco is very knowledgeable and just a good all around man. He has to do painful tests but he really cares about you as a person and tries to make it as good as possible. He's personable which helps keep your mind off what's happening. The last doctor who performed these tests has to be the meanest, most uncaring doctor in Omaha. I just love this guy!

Dr. Tom Franco has cared for my son since September of 2005. My son - Josh - was 3 1/2 at the time and suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury in car accident. Dr. Franco is an excellent and caring doctor who took a chance on my boy when there appeared to be no hope for recovery. Josh was under his daily care for three months in 2005. We still see him twice a year. Dr. Franco contributed greatly to my son's recovery and quality of life.

Excellent communicator and diagnostician. Dr Franco determined my condition and treated it expertly. I owe very much to Dr Franco. I have recommended him to everyone I think he would able help. The negative comments I have read here are unbelievable to me. He was a lifesaver for me.
