Awesome medical establishment!!. Friendly, kind, and on time. I have a trigger finger issue and was seen by his Jennifer S. She was so knowledgeable about the problem going into detail about everything. I could say so much more. I highly highly recommend East Bay Medical Center!!!!

by Madeline K. on East Bay Hand Medical Center

Dr. Franko can only be described as excellent by every measure - from our initial meeting, through the surgery and into recuperation. I wouldn't want to fracture my wrist again, but if I did, I would return to him.
