I was there by referral from the VA system. I Had no idea what to expect. Dr Franciso examined me and gave me an easy to understand explanation of my condition. He made sure I fully understood his opinion. All in all, a very satisfactory visit. I felt that I was in good hands from reception to the end of the visit.

I am so impressed by Dr. Francisco. He clearly focuses on the case at hand and communicates in a way that a layperson can understand. He is a very compassionate, professional, and educated physician with years of experience. He provides the opportunity to ask questions. I was fortunate to be seen by him.
Dr Francisco has taken care of me since 2019 and he is the best there is. Very caring, spot on, and tells it like it is. Thank you so much Dr. Francisco.

Both my husband and I were diagnosed with cancer over the past two years. The surgeons and radiologists and Dr. Francisco met with each of us before the surgery and discussed options. We have both been blessed by having Dr, Franciso as our doctor. He has made our lives longer and better by answering questions and unwaivering in his goal to help us. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an oncologist.
