I have reviewed Dr. Francis before but this visit warrants another. After visiting several specialists for a rather complicated condition and having been on numerous forums reading about sufferers that were getting nowhere with their doctorsI was not hopeful that Dr. Francis would be able to do much for me, but I wasn't ready to give up. I am so glad I went in and I wish I had gone sooner. Within the first few minutes he had listed at least ten different things to try and he was so compassionate and understanding I felt like I finally had an ally on this painful journey. After years of dismissive, know it all doctors I began to lose faith in the medical community. I would often say, "I'm not going to a doctor unless it is life or death, where I have nothing to lose, or something obvious like a broken bone because that is all they are good for....and taking your money." Finally finding one that listens and genuinely appears to care, has changed my opinion and feels like a miracle. Very grateful to have him as my doctor.

As a new patient trying to establish a relationship with a different doctor because of relocation, my wife and I were dependent on friends and others to get started. Dr. Francis was mentioned several times so we both booked appointments toget the process started. Booking online was a new process for both of us and actually turned out to be a simple process. If the visit this morning was any indication of what the future holds, I am looking forward to finally having a new family doctor. The office staff was very prompt and friendly, they called me back to go through preliminaries, and in very short order Dr. Francis came in to discuss my visit. Being the first visit we discussed my health, my parents health to get pertinent background information, and suggestions along maintaining my health. No lectures, offered suggestions and answered all my concerns and then some. Since this was my first visit in a number of years, I was impressed with how he addressed his concerns as well as mine and I look forward to working with he and his staff to improve and maintain my health

This was my first visit with Dr. Francis. The staff was very friendly, the office was clean & there wasn't a waiting room filled with patients. Dr. Francis takes his time listening and the asking questions. Once the exam was completehe summarized what action we were going to take. I felt very comfortable and confident that Dr. Francis will continue to provide the care I was looking for in my primary physician.

My discussion with the doctor was very informative. We discussed labs that had been performed and he provided more insight into the questions that I had asked concerning the lab results. He also took action to get refills on prescriptions thathad not been filled due to not having a doctor for 4 months.

I found Dr. Francis to be absolutely wonderful, to tell the truth. He was extremely thorough. Listened to my explanations of situations in my life health-wise. Advised me about things I might think about regarding my future physically--waysthat I can take care of myself for my balance issues. He was truly so understanding, was a great listener, and was very comforting. I was just delighted with the entire visit--from staff to my actual time with the doctor. My wait time was like not even 10 minutes. It was truly a wonderful visit. I highly recommend Dr. Francis and his staff to absolutely anyone looking for a primary care doctor!! Judy V.
