    Explanation (5/5)
    Dr Franklin is extremely knowledgeable, caring and attentive. I have had some stressful months worried about my health and within minutes of the examination and the scan results, he was able to reassure me and advise me of the next steps. I felt comfortable at all times, and he took the time to answer my questions. I cannot recommend Dr Franklin enough. Caroline Bevan, the Physician Assistant and Practice Coordinator was also very kind, and helpful assisting me to decide whether I should make the appointment with Dr Franklin. I'm very grateful to both of them.
