Verified Patient Reviews
She was incredible. She understood what I was feeling and what I needed. Will be with her for a long time.
I did not have to wait long. Dr. Carolynn was very pleasant, gave her full attention and took time to explain everything I need to know during my appointment. Thanks!
Great staff and felt that the doctor was caring and compassionate.
My appointment was a little rushed because a student doctor was assisting, but I am very happy to be a new patient for Dr. Francavilla
Great experience with Dr. Carolynn. Very friendly and informative. Everything I asked to be done was completed. Highly recommend her.
She was awesome and I look forward to my next visit!
I loved my appt. with Dr. Francavilla, but unfortunately for me, because I missed 3 appts., she will no longer see me after today. But it was nice of her to see me one more time, so she could refill my scripts. Most doctors wouldn't even do that if they were terminating you as a pt.!
Dr. Carolynn was great and spent a considerable amount of time with me. I was anxious about a particular diagnosis and she was able to calm and comfort me. She is personable and approachable and I am happy I found her.
I've been looking for a doctor since moving to Denver and I am so happy I found Dr.Francavilla! She was very nice and helpful to me during our appointment and I never felt like she was rushing me. She understood all of my concerns and was a delight to be around. I would recommend her to anyone!
Dr.Francavilla is very personable and friendly, with a real interest in having the patient understand everything about their appointment and diagnosis. She explained her process every step of the way as well, which is always reassuring. Clear language, honest, and reassuring.
She was wonderful. She was very good at listenning and provided multiple ways for us to tackle the issues at stakes. She's very knowledgeable and was willing to work with my comfort level. She also provided the option for us to meet online via video if i need a quick visit with her that would better fit my schedule.
I never write reviews but hopefully this will prevent someone from a similarly odd experience. The "nurse" who was supposed to give me a shot had no idea what she was doing and looked like she was 16 years old and had disheveled long hair hanging straight down-- nurses are supposed to tie their hair back and not have it in their face. I heard her ask the receptionist questions before she got everything ready for the shot and I told her I decided I didn't want a shot anymore and I would be fine because she made me so uncomfortable. I wasn't about to let some child stick my arm with a needle. The doctor charges you extra if you do a skype meeting with her or if during your exam you ask "too many questions" for your Annual checkup. So I literally had to say "can you stop me when I am asking too many questions, I don't want to be charged". Don't go here unless you like being nickel and dimed for things you can find out on Google. Terrible bedside manner-- she wouldn't even perform a breast exam because she said "I'm sure your last doctor did that" and she acted like she didn't have any time to do anything.
I have been going to Dr. Francavilla for almost a year, and I am glad I have found a great PCP. She is very knowledgeable and helpful; she offers realistic advice for long-term life style changes. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a good primary. Appointments are easy to schedule and the front office staff is great.
Initially she was attentive but on my follow up visits I needed a referral for a specialist and I never heard from her. So I had to look for another doctor.
Dr. Francavilla was very warm, friendly and knowledgeable. I felt that she genuinely wanted to get to know me. She spent a lot of time asking me about my background and my concerns. She sketched out diagrams to explain medical processes so I could easily understand them. She seemed open to trying several courses of action and assured me we would follow up quickly.
Very impressed look forward to working with her
This was my first visit with Dr. Francavilla and she was delightful, energetic and knowledgeable. She was easy to talk to and she gave me good ideas for addressing my issues.
Professional and quick. No wait time. Nice clinic.
Dr. Brown is pleasant, knowledgeable, and very helpful. However, the two times that I have had appointments here have both left me feeling like I was some sort of drug addict and a liar. I was diagnosed with ADD over 5 years ago and have been taking a small dosage of medication to treat that disorder since then. After relocating to Denver, I waited for my new insurance to kick in before scheduling an appointment w/ Dr. Francavilla to get my prescription filled. I had eaten a few 10mg marijuana edibles less than a week before my appointment, so Dr. Francavilla refused to prescribe me the medication. I waited two weeks for a second appointment, but unfortunately the THC was still in my system (despite the fact I hadn't had any further edibles or marijuana in any form). The nurse practitioner (who was also very nice and helpful otherwise) was not permitted to write me the prescription because of Dr. Francavilla's policy. I am currently working full time and studying for the bar exam (about 15 hours a day total work time) but I am barely able to get anything done because of my untreated condition. Dr. Francavilla should reconsider her policy against prohibiting any amount of THC in your system before prescribing patients medicine that they need in order to function. Interestingly, there were no questions about alcohol use; essentially, one could be a raging alcoholic and still get the prescription, but a few edibles three weeks before, and it's unacceptable. Not many people will have this issue I'm sure, but it's telling how willing Dr. Francavilla is to withhold needed medication from patients based on Puritanical views on LEGAL substances. Would not recommend.
It was a pleasant visit as usual :-) I enjoy having Dr. Francavilla as my doctor.
Dr. Francavilla was so personable and kind! Her bedside manner was outstanding. She was very knowledgeable and really took the time to listen to me. I would highly recommend her!!
I hope she's as amazing in the future as she was today!
Dr Francavilla Brown is very upbeat and still professional. I started with her because of her background in Bariatrics, and she has helped me with several issues. I will continue to see her even though it is a bit far to drive. I highly recommend her if you have any weight management concerns, as well as other health related issues. I really love her upbeat attitude! The staff is great also!
The doctor was very pleasant. She answered all my questions properly and treated me very well during my visit. The rest of the staff were very helpful. Was in and out with no problems.
very friendly, professional and answered all questions
I'm very excited to start my wellness plan .
She is an excellent Dr.! She is very knowledgeable!! She listens and is very understandable to your situation! Thank you Dr. Brown
Very knowledgeable and gave great patient care !
Dr. Francavilla Brown is one of the first doctor's I've seen that I can relate to. She makes me feel comfortable and good about taking care of myself. I would highly recommend her to anyone in the Denver metro area.
Easy to talk to. Made me feel at ease
Only an initial visit, but I was very impressed. I'd highly recommend to anyone. Love the fact they offer video consultations!
My experience with Dr. Francavilla was very positive. The initial visit was going over medical history and discussing goals and potential treatment options. She gave me some option to research at home--and at the second visit we decided what medications were appropriate for me. What was nice is she gave me time to think the treatment plan and medications over, and decide which one I thought was going to be right for me. I appreciate being asked to participate in my medical care, as well as feeling like it was a joint decision. Along with being seen my Dr. Francavilla for weight management, I am using her as my primary care doctor. She is very thorough and understands that we all have challenges in our lives; it feels like you are finding solutions to things that could be problematic in your health. I appreciate having a voice in my treatment plan and exploring different options and not feeling like I am being judged or not taken seriously.
Very informative with my diabetes
Very professional and very friendly team the doctor was terrific I would be so happy to recommend this group
I am VERY happy with Dr. Franavilla, and wish ALL doctors were as good as her!
This was simply the best experience I have had going to a doctor. 110%! Wonderful! I was treated so kindly by all, saw promptly, and was at ease and trusted the advice I was receiving. They take time to walk through your whole history, ask the right questions and provided me with the right answers/diagnosis. Having just moved here, I am So lucky to have Dr. Brown as my physician!
She was very nice and personable. She still took me as a patient even though I messed up my appointment time.
She was very friendly, knowledgable and caring.
I chose Dr. Brown as a potential new primary care Dr. after moving to Denver. My check up went well and she is very professional. I forgot one of my medications and called a few days later to add it to my list and get a refill, and was told that I would either have to pay a flat fee to talk to her or get charged by the minute to address the prescription refill. This is not a good start for me personally with a new primary care physician - it left me feeling that if I ever needed care, it was all about how I would be charged by the minute (so not a great score on bedside manner).
She was excellent and I am excited to know someone may finally be able to help me with my weight loss and self esteem.
Dr. Francavilla was amazing. She talked through all of my concerns and immediately addressed them as well as came up with other possibilities immediately which turned out to be true. Wonderful Doctor.
Dr. Carolynn was great! Best experience I e had with a doctor in Colorado yet! Absolutely recommend!
For a first time visit my husband and I were greatly impressed. The staff as well as Dr. Francavilla were professionally helpful. The environment reflected their simplicity and elegance. Thanks again!
Very understanding, listens and gives you time to explain such complex life-long illnesses.
Dr Francavilla was fantastic. She answered all of my questions and even helped with my insurance. Great visit. I would highly recommended.
Nice, caring, thorough, knowledgeable, not stressed
I was disappointed that after having lab work done and being told I would receive a phone call in less than two weeks (and there was some anxiety about the results) that I was never called. I had to contact the office with some persistence to find out my results.
I really liked her and think it will be a good fit. I will even follow her to he new office which is a bit of a drive for me. She was very knowledgeable and has a great personality.
Really takes her time and listens. She seems to really try and figure out what is wrong not just throw a prescription at you and send you out the door.She does a great job explaining everything. I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Francavilla was one of the first primary care doctors that I could actually relate to. She was kind, down to earth, and professional.
This is not their final location. They'll be closer to Lakewood in January. Dr. Franca villa was very nice and attentive and helpful.
I really like Dr. Francavilla Brown. I've only had one appointment thus far, but it was very pleasant. I felt that she really listened to me and was responsive to my specific health concerns. I also appreciated that she provided lifestyle advice along with medication to address them. I felt very confident in her care and with her advice. The receptionist was welcoming and I only waited because I arrived pretty early. This being my first appointment, I anticipated a certain amount of paperwork to be completed. I understand that the practice, Green Mountain Partners in Health, is in the process of finding a more permanent location. Dr. Francavilla Brown was very upfront about the move and her time limitations, which I really liked.
I thought she could have been a bit more thorough with my 5 year old's well child check and physical.
Great! Willing to prescribe non tradition prescription for hashimotos
Great visit but the office is closing
Once I arrived filled out all the new patient paper work a nurse took me back to a room starts to do the routine stuff and then proceeds to ask me if I knew that they were moving their office 40 minutes north of where they are. If someone had called and told me that I never would have gone.
I appreciate the friendly and efficient staff. Sorry you are moving. Thank you.
This was my first visit to see Dr. Francavilla Brown. The waiting room was nice and cozy, complete with comfy sofa and chairs, fireplace and large screen TV. However, I had barely sat down after completing my paperwork, when the MA called me back. The exam room was exceptionally spacious and very clean. After I was done with the MA, it was only a matter of minutes before the doctor came in. Dr. Francavilla Brown was very nice, wonderful bedside manner and involved me in the decision making of my care. I just moved here and was nervous about finding a new provider after being with the same clinic for over 20 years. I left knowing I had made an excellent decision. i was in healthcare for 40 years, so I am kind of picky.
Everyone was helpful and informative. I am a new patient and my forms were easily explained to me. I felt comfortable sharing my health history and everyone was respectful of my time.
Her check in process was paperless, her office staff friendly, her medical assistant Lola is adorable and Dr. Francavilla Brown herself is very sweet. I was there to get a doctor set up for prescription renewals - so a lot of history and information related to them. The doctor was very knowledgeable about the prescriptions and offered information/guidance along the way.
Very positive, welcoming office. Staff kind and professional. I will definitely go back.
Dr Francavilla is warm, caring and very professional. I've finally found a primary care physician I truly like and trust!
Dr. Francavilla was super easy to talk to and chatted with me a while about my problem, did a once over without any cold hands and addressed the issue to my satisfaction. Will definitely be going back.
I was seen by the nurse right away. I was interviewed thoroughly by the nurse. Dr. Francavilla Brown saw me soon after. I originally came in for one check up, at the end Dr. Francavilla Brown helped me with 3 more Health examinations. It was a very thorough visit.
For my initial appointment Dr. Francavilla and her nurse both spent a great deal of time with me going over my health history and any/all concerns that I had. I didn't feel rushed, or like she was hurrying to the next patient. Very friendly and easy to talk to.
I was very impressed with the professionalism and thoroughness of the staff and the Doctor. Everyone was incredibly friendly and listened to my concerns. However, since that appointment, I have had to deal with the receptionist who answers the phone several times, and find her manner to be curt, and borderline rude.
Dr. Francavilla is excellent! She understands cutting edge nutrition and her entire approach to her practice is precisely inline with what I believe a physician should be. I cannot recommend her highly enough! She listens and is very attentive and empathetic.
Great staff and the doctor listens to your needs. I'm very happy to have found my new doctor.
Overall she was really nice but I didn't like the wait time. I was waiting around 25 minutes to see the doctor, I wasn't really happy but the staff really friendly...
So far impressed
Dr. Francavilla Brown has been my second physical since I've moved to Denver and I will never find another one. Thankfully, her office is down the street from me, but even when I move around the city, she will be my destination for any medical need. She cared about my minute issues, even when she was absolutely flooded with appointments and the urgent walk-ins. Highly recommended and you better be nice to her because she's a great doctor and person.
Dr. Brown is great. She is super nice and very upfront about things. Instead of the usual office where the doctor is in and out in 5 minutes, Dr.Brown stayed for a good amount of time making sure I was comfortable and knowledgeable going forward. My new favorite Doctor!
Great customer service, very nice office, and great care. Very pleased!
I am over the moon regarding my experience with Dr. Francavilla... she is the most thorough, attentive, and engaged doctor I have seen in years. I am so glad I found her and will be making her my primary care doctor for sure! I highly recommend her.
