Sometimes he's good sometime he's not. Like why I have to take 2 physical check ups for 2 blood draws for checking the liver.

Wait time in the Waiting room is much too long. This needs to be addressed.
I have been going to Dr. Franklin for over 6 years now. I've never had the pleasure before him of having a family physician that actually appears to have a genuine concern for my health and well-being.
I came in with a list of five problems, and Dr. F. got through all of them. The appointment was set of to deal with blood chemistry, done quickly. The others were a referral to a surgeon (no kidding), followup on cortisone, toe splinting, and skin care.
Dr. Franklin is the best!
A Talented, Professional and Caring Physician. Bill

I don't live in the Monterey area. I'm a diver at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and as divers we have dive physicals. We see Dr. Franklin for all of our dive physical needs. I'm a wheelchair user and that doesn't effect how the Doctor works with me a all!

The whole office and staff of Dr. Franklin has been the most pleasant experience I have yet encountered in a private family practice. Thoughtful, compassionate, and thorough, they don't just stand by quality care; they live it.
My experience with Dr. Franklin was great! Not having been to the doctor in several years I was quite uneasy and worried. Dr. Franklin put at ease with his upfront and enthusiastic approach. Fortunately my results were quite good ,beyond my expectation.
The whole staff was friendly, welcoming, curtious and professional. I showed up early and they allowed me to provide urine sample prior to appointment. The practice reminds me of what a neighbor doctor would be like in the old days. Highly recommend!
Dr. Franklin always takes the time to discuss all my concerns. I treasure him.
Need more communications, knowledges and more understanding each other and lack experiences.

My issue was simple, and it was handled appropriately. Perhaps I should apologize for giving Dr. Franklin an easy issue. I would like to give him something more challenging, but I don't want to get sick to do it! I'm grateful for the routine checkup.
Doctor Franklin is very thorough,organized and explains things clearly.He listens and asks questions that are addressed immediately .
Dr. Franklin is great. He tells it to you straight, but he is a nice doctor as well. He apologized for being late, when another appointment ran too long. He is sincere, and I would highly recommend him.
Doctor was very good, the blood draw was not. The young lady was rushed, stuck me 3 times and said after the 1st time we will try 1 more time then I will have to send you out (she was flustered). I had to calm her down! She should know better.
I have difficulty with the Pharmacy and the office but don't know where the issue lies. My suspicion is the pharmacy!
Excellent as usual
Dr. Franklin is very caring & professional. He takes the time to discuss your concerns. One of the best around. Ken

This office is so professional and friendly,Dr. Franklin is amazing, so kind and generous with his time I trust him. I would recommend this office to everyone who needs a top notch doctor and professional staff.
Great communication. Always listens and addresses my concerns. Excellent doctor!
I'm a new patient. When calling around looking for a new provider I immediately was drawn to Dr. Franklin's office because of the front desk. Extremely polite, courteous and very friendly. EVERYONE at the office is great, nice, friendly and professional
A competent Dr will not have a lazy, dishonest , rude and incompetent billing clerk. I have visited the office 3 times for routine preventative care covered fully by my insurance. For each visit I had to spend a lot of time on phone with my insurance office trying to clear the coding of the Claims. She couldn't be bothered to find correct coding and also charged me for the in-network adjustment which is illegal. She hanged the phone on me when confronted with her dubious behavior. When I went through friends bills, found a lot of similar stuff. Co pay being charged again and so on. Be very careful when you visit this office. Question their bills with your health care provider. Just dont accept what they offer you as no care is taken for coverage and they deliberately will offer routines , checks not offered by insurance so they can charge you fully. An office with a good billing routine most likely will have better doctors. NOT THIS ONE. BE VERY AWARE. The good reviews are probably posted by their office stuff.
If you have to go to the doctor because you are sick or because you need your medications monitored....you couldn't ask for a better office. At first I questioned the appointments for my medications until I understood how quickly my health could change....now a 90 day check-in has saved me from a much more serious diagnosis. I thank God every day that I have a doctor who cares enough to put up with the grumbling that I did before. (I certainly don't grumble anymore). The staff is friendly and always has time for you. Most days you can get a same day appointment which is mostly unheard of with other physicians. The recordkeeping is constantly being upgraded and I am impressed with how much they do and still maintain a family friendly atmosphere. Dr. Franklin is attentive and direct and very professional. My overall experience has been a plus. I recommend him to all my friends and family.

Dr. Franklin's brisk, up-beat approach to the problems of my son - a now 23-year-old brain damaged but highly functional man - is refreshing and effective. Though I am in the exam room, Franklin speaks to Jay and questions Jay, not me, and the directions he gives are given to him also. This has often not been my experience with other doctors, who tend to treat him as an idiot or as simply not present. Whatever his faults in the experience of others, we are impressed. We're grateful and gratified to be under his excellent care.
