Dr. Franco behaved in a very dismissive and uncaring manner. I did not feel he reciprocated my concern in the slightest. this is coming from someone who highly holds a doctors bedside manner in high regard. I kept the same doctor for over six years because of how kind and caring she was. Dr. Franco definitely needs a refresher on bedside manner. I was explaining to him I had United Healthcare and was saying I have good insurance. To which he responded that there are different plans for United Healthcare and if you Walmart insurance it won\'t cover much. He was pretty cocky! I then snapped back that I AM SURE I have good insurance, the best I\'ve ever had as a matter of fact. Hes not polite, the only reason I went to him was because he was on my doctors referral list. Rude.
