After 2 years I was referred to Dr Franco and he told me about the antibiotic therapy and gave us informational material to read. I learned that it is ok to be depressed and that I'll worsen at first when I undergo the therapy.
Dr. Franco, you have been so nice and understanding with me. I guess it must be hard to hear patients complain to you all day, but you didn’t let it get to you. There needs to be people and doctors like you who really care about people.
I have seen Dr. Franco several times as of this writing and I am so much healthier, happier and so mobile it would be difficult for you to believe this drastic change could take place in just one year’s time.
Dr Franco is very thorough and careful. He has done extensive x-rays and tests. He has spent a lot of time in individual consultation. I am virtually symptom free and have been for months. I am very grateful to Dr. Franco for your help.
