2 1/2 weeks ago, I saw Dr. Stein. I was pleasantly surprised becausea) he came to the door to shake my hand and welcome meb) he thoroughly: *asked questions *listened *provided 3 different solutionsIt was encouraging that his "go to" technique was NOT surgery first. Instead, it was a natural way of the body healing itself! He said it would take up to 4 months to fully heal, but after just 2 1/2 weeks, I'm up to 90% strength! Very impressed. The staff was courteous as well. Highly recommended!!!

by Tervor L. in San Francisco, CA on East Bay Hand Medical Center

After my accident Dr. Franko was able to see me right away. If it wasn't for my insurance he would have seen me that same day. He explained my injury, the surgery, and recovery in simple English, and even shared what the consensus treatment was in medical journals. Dr. Franko was personally easy to relate to, and he did a great job with my surgery. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that needs a hand surgeon.
