Patient Reviews ?
Very knowledgeable. Gives you an honest opinion as to what procedure (if any) to go forward with and what your best options are. I've had two surgeries tummy and thigh and both were fantastic. He knows his stuff and genuinely cares about his patients. Also he is highly skilled and conscientious about his craft which I believe happens to be a passion. He always seeks to improve himself as a surgeon for the well being of his patients. Bottom line he is good and can be fully trusted!
I'VE BEEN A NURSE FOR MANY YEARS AND I WORK AT MERCY. I HAD A BREAST REDUCTION BY DR FRANCEL. ABSOLUTELY THE BEST EXPERIENCE EVER. HE IS SKILLED AND KIND. MY RESULTS WERE GREAT. IF I NEED ANYTHING ELSE DONE I WOULD GO BACK TO HIM IN A HEART BEAT.
I am thrilled with my results from surgery with Dr. Francel! He is a wonderful doctor and his office staff is very helpful. When chatting with patients in the waiting room they also only have wonderful things to say about Dr. Francel and his practice. I couldn't be happier with my new look and will definitely go back in the future for additional procedures.
Dr. Francel explains everything he is going to do--very patient--very professional-after a procedure his follow up is very thorough--I would recommend his work with a 5 star rating
I spent a long time(over a year) searching for the right surgeon for my augmentation and liposuction. I was referred to Dr. Francel through a friend, who had a terrific experience. I am so happy that I went to Dr. Francel. He is a miracle worker! I never expected to have such amazing results. Not only is he a great surgeon, but he is also a really kind person and took a lot of time to answer my questions.
The thing I remember most was his kindness. I had a facelift & it looks so natural. He also did a couple extra things for me in surgery & didn't charge for them. He had me return for as many visits as I needed. His skin care nurse also gave me free products to try & did a complimentary peel. Great staff. A wonderful, ethical doctor!
Best best best plastic surgeon in Saint Louis . Real treat that he practices at Mercy because that happens to be my favorite hospital too . Everything about this place is top notch and so glad I was lucky enough to find such a skilled plastic surgeon close to home !
I have met with all of them folks and this is the best Plastic Surgeon in the Midwest hands down . I have had consultation after consultation and chose this as guy and boy did he do an awesome job. I have some complicated stuff going on too this guy is the best he is a true artist and amazed by his work ! A office staff is super professional too and everyone is super pleasant and easy to deal with ! a real asset to this area
This doctor is wonderful!! I am a patient of his and work at the same hospital. He donates his time and expertise weekly to the charity clinic (JFK Clinic) at Mercy Hospital to care for patients without means and has been doing this without compensation since 1998. He is the BEST!
This most caring doctor was absolutely wonderful fixing a horrible result from another in the community. He spent sooo much time with me and my family that we walked out of his office relieved that we found him. His staff was wonderful as well as they listened to our concerns and calmed our tears. The best doctor!!!!
Mary in the office is VERY nice as you are asking questions initially, but quickly becomes curt. It appears to be all about money. I would AVOID if at all possible.
worst dr to ever encounter. got botched at his hands due to reckless behaviour.
What a great surgeon. I had elective plastic surgery to look younger. I was tired of people telling me I looked tired. I liked Dr. Francel from the first minute. He is just so "real". I left the selection of procedures up to him and he did eyes, forehead and chin lift. I was amazed at the results. I look like I did 25 years ago. Easy surgery and recovery, couldn't be happier. There is no visible evidence that I had surgery. People see me now and say, "WOW, you look great".
I had surgery with Dr. Francel in December. His office staff was very professional, easy to talk to and pleasant. Dr. Francel performed reconstructive surgery and I could not be more pleased. He is a excellent surgeon, great personality and I would recommend him to anyone seeking a plastic surgeon.
I had surgery in July 2008 and was thrilled with Dr. Francel's work! He's an excellent surgeon and the work on me was superior; even more than I had dreamed!
Just a wonderful surgeon who takes extra time with each patient. You won't find another like this caring physician.
Aug 2008: He has always treated me with respect and spends as much time with me as I ask questions. Even came in on a Sunday morning to take out my drains after a surgery so that my husband didn't have to take off work during the week to drive me to his office
I recently received cosmetic surgery from Dr Francel, and received excellent results and care. He was terrfic on keeping up with me and calling me one and two days after surgery. I strongly recommend Dr Francel
Very, very bad experience with this Dr. with numerous major problems that he did not deal with properly
