    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.

While it is becoming difficult to see Dr. Franco in her San Pedro office, I really like her. She is very sincere and thorough during her visits and very communicative. She was my mother's doctor as well and always spent plenty of time with her and showed great concern. I highly recommend her!

Excellent Staff and Doctor

The staff was friendly and efficient. Office seems to keep a full schedule. If you want/need extended time with the doctor, it may be useful to let the appointment setter know that in advance. Dr Franco was truly great. She paid close attention to details, explained well, and was respectful and caring. I'm new to the office having only 2 appointment with her and look forward to having Dr Franco as my primary care physician. She didn't have time to address all my questions at the first appointment and it was suggested to schedule another appointment. I was ok with that since it wasn't urgent, however it would have been nice to have another 10 minutes of her time. I recently had lab work ordered and she called me in a timely manner to follow up with me about the results.

Gone

She demeans and disrespects you. I really believe she is a control freak and doesn't hear or really care about what her patients are saying. I am finding another dr. as she has is extremely moody and you never know what she will treat you like. I am done as there are many other drs. to choose from. I am employing my dr. and I give respect and deserve respect.

One Star

My parents see this doctor and she is very rude and complains if she spends too much time with them. They attempt to ask questions and she tells them to make another appointment. This has happened on several occasions. She has a very poor bedside manner and she appears more interested in the money than the patient.
