Specialties

Dr. Rodney T Franklin has the following 3 specialties

  • Hospice & Palliative Medicine
  • 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.

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

People are confused

about what hospice really is. This man isn't. He understands the process and can easily navigate the valleys and hills. He's a great Dr. My loved one had a "good death" and that's all we asked for .

Does not include family in care or decisions

This man refused to allow us to take Dad to Hospice. He and the staff were "ghoulish". I got Dad's doctor of many years to come to this specialty hospital to write order to dismiss my Dad to Hospice. Dad died 12 hr after he got to hospice. This man even told us "I will decide when he goes to Hospice". Dad was dying. His care was horrible at this Covenant Specialty Hospital (LTAC.
