Dr. Franko needs to give better follow up instructions. I left confused about what I was suppose to do after I followed his initial instructions.

Dr. Franko was not knowledgeable about my history and recent hospital visit. Nor did he even examine my surgery site. Very displeased with my care.

Although Dr. Franko\'s bedside manner initially seemed cold, I really appreciated his straight-forward answers. He really listened to my questions and helped me understand my care. One of the things I appreciated most was that he really gave me a good idea of what to expect after my procedure (stinging, etc.).
