Verified Patient Reviews
Although we were a bit late arriving for our 1:30 appt due to transportation delays from the skilled nursing facility, filling out the initial visit questionnaire was very easy via tablets provided by the office. Unfortunately we waited nearly 45 minutes before getting into a room. It was another 30 minutes before seeing the doctor Removing the staples, examining the X-Ray took maybe 10 minutes. Overall the visit went well.
This is not my first experience with Dr. Francisco. I saw him for a completely different injury that occurred earlier this year. My son was also a patient of the practice after 1 football practice this August. Dr. Francisco is a thorough, considerate and sympathetic physician, which is rare these days. Everyone in the office from reception (where they remember your name) to the last person you encounter before walking out the automated door (who thinks of that? Only people who understand their patients and know they are likely leaving on crutches, in wheelchairs or in casts and in pain), is a pleasure. The surgery center included! I was 40 minutes early for my appointment and they took me in a room within 10 minutes of my extremely early arrival, to remove my surgical splint and sutures prior to being recast by his PA, Tiffany B O' connor, who I highly respect. She answered all of our questions (my husband is a DPT / Doctor of Physical Therapy and had more questions than first time moms). We saw Dr. Francisco and we were in and out within 40 minutes of our early arrival with a smile and a bright pink cast :) We even had time to get a smoothie before carpool which felt like a date after 21 days of keeping my leg elevated and sequestered to the second story! I am not the most graceful person nor do I have the most graceful family. I have broken a few bones, in different countries and on opposite coasts. I can tell you from experience that this is by far the best orthopedist, with the most efficient staff I’ve encountered. I remember after my surgery when Dr. Francisco came to recovery and told me how bad it really was once he got in and he assured me I was going to be ok, that I told him it wasn’t a good business plan fixing repeat customers. BTW- the nurses are amazing!
Very polite and professional I was treated with dignity and the place was very clean I left with a confident feeling that everything's going to be alright
It Pleasant visit. Thanks to all.

Great bed side manner. Truly concerned and acted very quickly to resolve my issue with surgery same day. I highly reccomend this office and Dr. Francisco
I presented Dr. Francisco with a dual foot and ankle problem. He listened patiently and intently as I explained a long term condition and a more recent accident. He asked searching questions to obtain more details. He informed me that my X-rays did not reveal anything pertinent and gave me several options for treatment, explaining the pros and cons of each. He, and everyone I encountered in the office, was extremely professional, knowledgeable, concerned and kind. What more need I say!
Excellent visit. Very thorough. Answered all my questions.

I have been going to Dr. Francisco for several years. He has a very nice and gental manner. I have faith in his treatment and his decisions. Each time I have been treated br Dr Francisco,the problem has been resolved.
Dr. Francisco and his staff are very pleasant and professional. I've been seeing dr. Francisco for about 7 years now. It's not one of those doctors that the first thing they want to do is have surgery. Or give you a prescription for pain meds and see you in a month. The things that I love about Dr Francisco is he will try everything before recommending surgery if needed. Dr. Francisco is the best orthopedic surgeons that I know and used. Thank you dr. Francisco and staff.
Great doctor and a professional, friendly and helpful staff.
Will definatley use Dr. Francisco in the future. He's very knowledgeable and answers any questions I might have about my treatment. Will take as much time as needed to make sure I am satisfied with his diagnosis.
I appreciate the Doctor and nursing staff. I feel that the counter staff has no professionalism. The two staff discussed an apparent friend that drove, but didn't have vehicle insurance, while I was waiting in front of them for more than 10 minutes. I was trying to get a copy of my insurance card for the Blonde lady. I told her that my wife apparently had my card, but she insisted on a copy of my card. But she wouldn't call BC/BS to get my number policy number because she insisted on a copy of a card. Thank goodness that another of my Doctor's staff was more professional and sent her a copy of my card.
He was very sweet to me little girl. I will go to him once I get hurt again.
Dr. Francisco is knowledgeable and very professional. I have been his patient for the past 4 years and he cares about his patients and he listens to what you are saying to help you get 100% better.
He was very pleasant and very knowledgeable. I liked it that he wasn't pushy and also understands that people are capable of making an informed decision. Answered my questions. Spent adequate time with me as a patient.
Dr. Francisco is very pleasant and professional. My visit was very satisfactory. Also, all of the staff that I came in contact with were equally nice. I was a return patient and will continue coming to Atlantis Orthopedics.
He is the best Foot and Ankle specialist I know of
Great eye contact, validated my struggles, heard me, didn't rush me...He gives sound advice and is conservative. :) He's fabulous!
Good doctor, got the job done, good diagnostic and treatment skills. Also, got fast appt.
He really listen to what I had to say and I like that in a doctor!!!! He was honesty with me.
Dr. Francisco is fantastic great personality and takes a time with you
Dr. Francisco is a very humbled and patient doctor. He listens to you and has a conversation with you that you understand. He is caring and knows his profession. Anyone would be extremely pleased with his expertise and knowledge. He has a very assistant also.
This is the nicest doctors office I've ever been to, and I'm a diabetic that says a lot I visit many doctors offices. The couches had plugs in them so you could charge your phone with the regular power outlet or two USB inputs. Check in was easy with an iPad type device to check in with and fill out your information. And the staff was just great I showed up without an ID and my insurance card and had to return home to come back and they still saw me
Always a great visit, takes care of my needs, listens to me, and lets me make the decisions of what to do next.
Very pleasant visit
He listens to complaints & prescribes good ways to handle condition.
Very caring feel very confortable with all staff and will recommend Dr Francisco
Dr. Francisco is fantastic as is his staff..
Answered my questions concerning treatment options. Had an X-ray and got a boot to wear when sleeping. Very reassuring..
Great doctor. Hard to find a good one like Dr. Francisco
Dr. Francisco was very understanding ad reassuring. I liked him very much.
Dr Francisco listens to my complaints. He takes time in examining and diagnosing the problem as well as the treatment needed.
My last three visits have been a waste of time because all information (my injury medical records) was not accessed to see the full scope of both of my injuries, my shoulder (dislocated) and wrist (broken). Now I have to start over seeing specialist with the conditions in worsened. I am angry and very disappointed.
As always visit went very well DR Francisco and staff are a great group of people. Wishing all of you Merry Christmas.
Dr Rommel Francisco is awsome. First time i meet him was under worker comp. He did such a great job i went back 4 years later to cut out a bone spur off the other doot he is a great man and doctor.
I have seen Dr. Francisco several times. He is always gracious, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. His medical care has provided me with the quality of life I used to have before my health issues escalated. I would highly recommend him.
This is a great office.
Good visit. He does not seem hurried and answers all my questions.
Dr. Francisco is a great doctor and surgeon. He performed haglunds surgery and Achilles reconstruction on my foot on Aug. 11, not only did all go smoothly but now I am walking a mile and doing other activities with no heel pain for the first time in 20 years! And my foot feels better and better every week. If you are looking for a good ortho doc I strongly recommend this doctor and his team. The people who work with him are also all excellent.
I was seen quickly and received high-quality care. Dr. Francisco was knowledgable and conservative in the treatment of my foot injury.
Dr. Francisco was great - helpful, informative, and friendly.
Visiting the office for the first time was an enjoyable experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful. When I met Dr. Francisco he was very friendly and explained my X-Ray results do I could understand the results. I will definitely go back to him and recommend him to family and friends.
Great Doctor. Highly Recommend. Listens and they explains all options. Very Friendly.
I was so disappointed to learn that Dr. Francisco had done surgery on my ankle and then did not even check on the fluid he took off. He only called to find out results of blood work today when I was in the office (today is 11/4/15 and my surgery was a week ago yesterday). It turns out the fluid was growing a bacteria that called for Levaquin, an antibiotic that I am allergic to. Now I have to enter the hospital again to get a pick to administer antibiotics intravenously. I am still not sure if I will have to stay in the hospital and if so, how long. Maybe I will be there one day and then come home and have someone come to my home to administer them. I am just disappointed!!
Dr. Francisco is very professional he answers all my questions and is very thorough. I've had two procedures done both went very well might require another procedure I have no doubts about his practice. The staff is excellent and very courteous.
Dr Francisco treated my son 2 years ago for a leg injury. We were very satisfied how he treated my son. I now have returned to see Dr Francisco due to a knee injury. I would recommend him to my friends and family.
I am very please with my visit with Dr. Francisco. He was polite and answered all our questions. I would recommend Dr. Francisco to anyone I know.
very professional . explained things in detail.
Everyone was professional and very nice. Dr Rommels Assistant was wonderful !!! She told such good care of me taking off my cast and keeping me calm !
Great Doctor, always concerned and prompt.
Dr. Francisco is an amazing doctor. I was at my wits end when I came to see him in April of this year. After consulting with him, we scheduled an ankle fusion surgery for May 7th, 2015. Because of Dr. Francisco's expertise, I am pain free in my ankle for the first time in 10 years. He and the staff at Atlantis Orthopaedics are so kind and caring, which really means a lot when you are scared and in pain. If you are searching for a Foot & Ankle specialist like I was, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment with Dr. Francisco. I know he will be able to help you like he has helped me! He has given me my life back!
I have been Dr Francisco's patient for about 7 years. He has always been kind, patient and informative. He has literally seen me with problems from neck to toes. I asked him if I can come to him with "anything" orthopedic and he then can refer me to another doctor. I am satisfied with the office, staff and I have much confidence in Dr Francisco.
Dr. Francisco is amazing doctor i am very please with my visit. He was extremely knowledgeable with my problem . I would highly recommend him to my Friends and family.
The doctor was very clear, concise, and knowledgeable. He answered all my questions thoroughly and has a very pleasant nature. The office staff was very accommodating, able to fit me in the same day.
My visit was good, and I will recommend the Doctor as well as return if the need arises.
He recommended another specialist for more info.
Dr Francisco is wonderful, thorough and will take the time and talk to you about what is going on. He isn't too pushy or ask for any unnecessary testing. His office staff were helpful and kind. I'm glad I found him to take care of my ankles!
Nice friendly person and informed me of my options.
Dr. Francisco is very thorough, explains every step of procedures and is extremely attentive to your diagnosis. I trust him and his judgement.
All staff members were very professional in all aspects of my visit. . Each member, including Dr. Francisco, performed their responsibilities expediently.
He is exceptional Dr. He is knowledgeable and professional. He has a wonderful bedside manner which makes the visit much easier as in my condition I deal with severity of pain and someone who is compassionate and understands like Dr Francisco does help the process. I'm grateful he is my Orthopedic. Thank you
He was very nice to talk to, will wait to see if I get any response from PPC.
Very rare you find a doctor who takes time to listen and explained in details about your medical condition. Dr. Francisco is caring and knowledgable . I definitely would recommend him to anyone. His office staff is pleasant and helpful. Thanks Dr. Francisco!
felt at ease with the dr and staff! talked to me and listen to what I had to say about my problem.
The receptionist was the friendliest of the 4 people I had contact with including the doctor. The doctor his self was unfriendly and made little to no eye contact. Was actually the most in unfriendly professional office I've ever been in.
The doctor was extremely knowledgeable about my problem, and put me at ease immediately. I felt like he was very straight forward in relying what i should expect with regards to pain level post surgery and down time until i could return to work. There are doctors in my immediate living area that could treat me but I am seeing Dr. Francisco who is in another county because of his excellent reputation. That, and the fact that my younger sister has undergone surgery preformed by him to correct a botch job by another doctor. She is still recovering actually but her ankle looks amazing (when ive seen it, case off, for x ray) . I go for CT scans this week, then...my turn! Looking forward to not having constant pain. So you know, I'm 44 and my sister is 39.
The Dr. was great, Although it would be nice if they carried the supplies that you need, instead of having to go back to your primary, to get another referral for the prescription. (medical supplies) Then go find a medical supply facility. to get your Prescription filled. that is very inconvenient. another day with out the necessary medical boot. it becomes a runaround.
Always concerned and always looking for the best method of treatment.
I had visited two other doctors regarding my foot problem and had no confidence in them at all to do surgery. Then I found Dr. Francisco and he was very professional , skilled and to the point about my problem. I felt I could totally trust him with my foot. Now I am recovering from surgery done by Dr. and his excellent team. I strongly recommend dr. Francisco , am so glad to have found him.
As always professional. Medical Assistant and X-Ray Technician both very friendly and proficient.
I felt my visit was rushed and not given enough information as to what my options were) long term and short term) for treatment of my injury; and what to expect for recovery period.
I appreciate Dr. Francisco's professional manner. He took care to study and understand my injury before rendering a diagnosis. He explained his conclusion clearly and my options for recovery. He exhibited patience in answering all of my questions, both those of understanding and those of procedure. He was pleasant to deal with. If I have a future injury in his area of expertise, I will certainly return to him.
This was my second time for having to see Dr. Francisco. I was very satisfied with the care the first time, which is why when I had another problem I went back. He is very patient and listens well to what you have to say. I hope I won't have to be back, but if I have another concern I will definitely contact him again.
He was very professional, but caring and imparted information that made me feel comfortable, He certainly made me feel that I could ask any questions.
As always, prompt and professional.
He is a good doctor he really knows what he is doing and I would highly recommend him to others including my friends and family.
Great Doctor. Genuinely concerned about your recovery.
He was very nice, thorough and professional.
Was more concerned with treating the problem rather than finding out what was causing the problem.
Dr Francisco is an excellent doctor and great surgeon too! I'll glad I found him to repair my broken ankle! I would HIGHLY recommend him, you WON't be disappointed. Thanks Dr. Francisco, and your staff for the excellent and accurate care!
he listens to the patient .... great doctor !
Very professional, offers all options , dedicated to your recovery.
The wait was quite long but it was the Monday after the holiday weekend. Once in the exam room, things moved quicklyand efficiently. Dr. Francisco and the staff were great. I'm very happy to have been directed here.
Dr. Francisco has a very nice bedside manner and was easy to talk with. The staff there were all pleasant and helpful.
He a great doctor
Explained how the healthcare system worked!!. He told me he will call my primary physician and explain my circumstances. That the surgeon that did my surgery at the hospital should follow my case. I am having problems with my primary care physician. I had surgery in my finger and my primary doctor insisted that I see another doctor for my follow up visit. Sure enough my finger was not healing right and I've been bounced to another doctor for follow up. That is not right. !!!!
Great and kind doctor.
I absolutely love this office. The staff are very helpful and friendly and made me feel like i was part of their team. Dr. Francsico was extremly knowledgable and friendly. He was ably my questions throughly and assisted me with the different options I had to help me with my ankle problems. I would highly recommend him and this staff to anyone looking for a great doctor and wonderful staff.
It was a great office....everyone worked as a team. I will definitely recommend him to my friends.
Dr. Francisco is professional and very accurate and makes sure all your questions are answered. He cares about his patients, would recommend him highly.
Broke my fibula and was sent to Dr. Francisco, by my Dr. And he took me right in and did surgery. 6 weeks later and am now walking on foot in boot. Has to be one of the finest doctors I have ever had the pleasure of taking care of me. Always right in and takes care of whatever I need. He even looked at my lady's toe this last appt after she fell the day before, took X-ray and put her in boot when found it was broken on his lunch hour before going to surgery. Awesome doctor.
Doctor reviewed a CD of x-ray I brought, studied ankle, and asked questions about history of my problem. Very pleasant manner and reassuring answers to questions. Instructed about care of ankle. Thank you.
Always very understanding and compassionate of the patients needs. Would recommend Dr. Francisco to any and all friends and co-workers.
After he repaired my ankle, I would only trust him and his staff with any other issue I have with my bones
He's a great doctor and a wonderful person.
One of the best Doctors I have ever had to deal with. Thank you doctor Francisco
He is very easy to talk to and spends as much time as necessary to make sure your questions are answered. Definitely would recommend him and his office staff.
CAN'T TYPE MUCH RIGHT HAND IN SPLINT.HE IS A GOOD MAN.
He listened and was very knowledgeable.
Very professional and knowledgeable in his practice. You are given the choice to accept or reject the proposed treatment. My knee pain went away the same day and has not changed after two weeks.
We waited to long in the room until he came.
Very caring office staff. Dr. Francisco very thorough, knowledgeable and most important, listens to his patient. Highly recommend
Atlantis Orthopaedics is a wonderful resource. All the doctors there are top notch. Dr. Routman did my shoulder replacement, and Dr. Francisco is taking care of my leg fracture. Excellent care.
Straight to the point and quick I loved it
Was very helpful
Provided me with initial step to take toward ultimate diagnostics. I really liked that he gave me a picture of possibilities also, a very likable person :-)
He's very professional.and we have complete confidence in him.
Great Dr and staff I thank each of them for all they do
I had asked for the first of the day so that I wouldn't have to wait as long as I did yesterday. My next appointment if 9/12/14
I am very happy that i was referred to Dr Francisco...I knew i was in excellent hands for the treatment and surgery of my injury.
Yes I will see the Dr. as things progress or I should say digress with my knee. I have also recommended Dr. Francisco to a friend who has had knee surgery on one leg and was less than happy and is now looking at the possibility of the other knee. after talking to him about my last two visits he asked for the phone number.
I'm 2 weeks out of surgery and not through the whole process yet, but so far excellent care and attention to detail.
He a great doctor
He is a great doctor. Very professional.
My client was very please do to the american sign languish interpreter.
Went very well. Good explanation and positive action plans
I felt good because he gave me another option to help with my injury to my ankle .
He is an awesome doctor. Great explanation of the success of my foot surgery. I would definitely recommend Dr. Francisco.
I think he is terrific!!!!!
He is awesome and so is the entire staff!! One of the few times it was a pleasure to go to the doctor's to get a shot!!!
He is a kind & caring doctor. The best thing about him is that he Listens to his patients. My husband was also his patient in the past & we both thought the world of Dr. Francisco.
Rommel is a real doctor time,information, results. He has been great for me He solved a fifteen year problem of pain for me.
Was helpful and informative
Excellent, very professional.
He was great Maybe you could text if there is. Long wait period.
I found the staff to be cordial and pleasant. The nurse was also pleasant although wasn't sure as to what was the issue. The entire visit was professional and complete. The staff was accommodating when it came to scheduling my next appointment and volunteered to contact the home care organization in order to provide nursing care.
Dr himself and Xray people are excellent .. But front desk needs a major staff change ..
Dr. Francisco is a caring and knowledgeable doctor who spent the necessary time to review my particular situation, and make recommendations to help heal my foot stress fracture. I needed an innovative solution other than the ordinary, and Dr. Francisco was willing to work with me, instead of just ignoring my needs. In the end, I had an excellent result and cannot recommend Dr. Francisco more highly.
I felt that there was no reason for the office to be backed up over 1 hr for an 8:30 apt
