Specialties

  • Family Medicine

    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.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I found Dr. Franklin to be extremely lazy. I had terrible uncontrolled high blood pressure and he just kept giving me pills for over 2 1/2 years. In the end, I had a heart attack at age 45. He didn't check to see if I had plugged arteries- he just kept giving me pills. He doesn't listen to the patient. I went in with allergy symptoms, I told him that I had allergies and just couldn't shake the cough. Two months and 3 visits later, HE came up with the diagnosis of "allergies". He is in it for the money- ---- NOT the patient. Anything that takes time or effort, he doesn't do. He wants to "SKATE"- not put a lot of thought into it. After I had the heart attack, he had NO RESPONSE/ JUST IGNORED me when I asked him if it could have been prevented. Go elsewhere.

Love my doctor

Dr. Franklin has been my doctor for 15 or more years. He is always kind,and takes as much time as I need to discuss my problems. I would not think of changing doctors.
