    Dr Franco quickly pinpointed the injured location through palpation and visual inspection of my back and posture and then verified this determination through analysis of my biomechanics and strength, which included lifting one leg while lying on my stomach. Almost Zen-like considering the relatively uncommon nature of my injury (unilateral paraspinal) and the complex biomechanics involved, which includes numerous layers of back muscles acting on the legs and torso in multiple planes/directions.

    Dr Franco is the perfect match of caring and medical expertise I have found in many years. His compassion & concern are truly a rare gift. I suffered from hip pain for months and after one visit I am finding relief. I cannot recommend him & his caring staff enough!

    I can't say enough about Dr. Franco. He saw me one time and immediately had an idea of what was wrong with me. After countless appointments and test with other doctors and nothing could be found. I did have the condition Dr. Franco thought and now I may finally get some relief. I would recommend him 100%!
