Best doctor for DeQuervain’s Disease

The first time I met with Dr. Franko he made me feel so comfortable. I went into his office in so much pain in my left wrist. After Dr. Franko explained my options, I had a cortisone shot in my wrist and I had immediate relief. I was pain free for over a year and just recently went back to Dr. Franko for another cortisone shot and again, I am pain free in my left wrist. I highly recommend Dr. Franko.

Pain is gone...

The pain in my wrist was not getting any better. The ER visit did not help. The Dr. made little effort to treat beyond x-ray (not broken) and sold me a $200 brace. Dr, Frank got to the root of the problem and offered an elegant solution: The pain is gone. Dr. Franko treated the problem appropriately and made sure I understood the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment. He's a rare breed of professional mixed with personal. In short: a true physician.

Hand surgery

Dr. Franko conducted a surgery on my left hand. I would say, the most memorizable part of the surgery is the feeling of assurance he brought to me, starting from diagnosis to operation. His thorough thinking process, acute sense of the problem, steady hand, extensive knowledge, and sense of humor, made the surgery a very confident journey. I trust him 100%.
