Dr. Franklin first saw me when I had been referred to him for an ablation. He explained the procedure to me and was careful to answer questions about any concerns I had or any misgivings that kept whirling around in my head. His calm, matter of fact manner was very reassuring and positive. Thankfully I had a very skilled physician because the ablation had been a success for 4 years now. I would recommend him highly. If I ever had to have another ablation down the road, I hope it will insist on Dr. Jay Franklin.

One thing Dr. Franklin did to allay some fear I've had over taking statins to address my cholesterol was to assure me that I don't need to begin those meds at this time, as long as I am careful with my diet. That I am doing!
