Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice.

Dr. Franklin explained more about the possibility of replacing my defibrillator due to the current battery reaching its expected lifetime. I understand that I will receive ample notice from my current device so that I can make the appointment for replacement in a timely manner. I appreciated his taking the time to give me the information I needed.

Dr Franklin fully answered each of my questions and concerns. He explained the causes for and treatment of my heart issues. I was very relieved to finally hear the differences between the cellular, skeletal and nerve functions as they related to the A-Fib. He was very professional and forthright in the discussion, which I really liked. I valued his expertise and experience, and I now know how I will proceed in the treatment of my heart issues. Thank you, Dr Franklin.

Dr Franklin does a great job of explaining both your conditions and your treatment options. He doesn't push you to do anything you feel uncomfortable with. He is professional and caring at the same time. He is straight with you without talking above your head. I felt extremely comfortable having him as my specialist to do my surgery. I highly recommend Dr Franklin.
