Does Not Care

Dr. Franklin seems to be nice but the actual is he does NOT care about the patient period. I was late to the appointment 7 min coming with pain in my ribs and refused to see me because I’m late. I was in pain and I mentioned that to the nurse but still did not see me and told me to go to ER. I noticed since I was in the office urging with the nurse that his next patient is ½ hour later and he still refused to see me. It was noon and lunch seems to be more important than his patients. I will not deal with a physician who doesn’t care about the life and health of people. It’s all about money. I Don’t recommend him to anyone.

Only been one glitch regarding a prescribed drug but that does not fall squarely on the doctors shoulders.

Highly recommended

Dr. Franklin is kind, caring and knowledgable. He spends time listening and finding the best treatment. He doesn't hesitate to refer you elsewhere if a speciality is needed. I agree with another statement that nurses on the answering service are rude. While is so compassionate, it's a shame they don't reflect. Luckily I am aware that it's not his office staff, they are great too! I've referred several friends to him over the years.

Outstanding Doctor

Dr. Franklin is one of the best physicians that I have ever had. It is unfortunate that his staff is not as professional. The nurses taking his same day appointments are sarcastic and rude. They are just not willing to help and make it nearly impossible to find a suitable resolution. If you have the patience to work through his staff..he is truly a great physician.

Great Doctor

Dr. Franklin is by far the best physician I've seen. His bedside manner is fantastic and is very interested in getting an issue resolved - without unnecessary visits or tests. I now live outside Illinois, but continue to see Dr. Franklin for non-emergency care.

Awesome Guy

Just really cares about you as a person, asks a ton of questions to get the right diagnosis and genuinely cares. He spends a lot of time with you making sure he gets everything right.
