Dr. Francis is top-notch. He's smart, empathetic, full of integrity and so kind. I know his momma must be really proud of him. And I know you folks at BSW must be thrilled he's part of your team.

Dr. Francis reviewed my history starting from the first indication of problems. He was a compassionate listener. We talked about my medications. He made helpful comments and set an appointment in three months. He also reminded me to call in case of a serious problem. I appreciate his manner and professionalism.

I have bi-Polar disorder for several years. I was beginning to go into manic episode. Emailed Dr. Francis about this. He responded to me by phone the next day. He talked with me and decided I needed an adjustment in my medications. He set up an app't for me to see him in 2-3 days. He was very helpful and sensitive to my needs. I really like this doctor.

My care provider quickly recognized the symptoms I had of a medical reaction and advised me to DC a specific medication. I appreciate his knowledge and open communication to assist me in recovery from a negative reaction to that specific medication.

At this point I'm very impressed with Dr. Francis. He listened, was understanding and even though I didn't have time to give him the complete story, he put together a lot I didn't say. I felt encouraged to come back & even see a colleague who has a different specialty.
