Doctor and assistant, (listened) and took time to really talk to me about what I wanted done; and after effects.
dr. Defranzo took time and explained procedure and technique. he took the time to sit with me. so gracious and this was very appreciated
I have the upmost confidence in Dr. Defranzo.
I know he is very busy - the RN staying to make sure I understand is great!
Was recommended to *Dr. DeFranzo & now I understand why.
Every thing waas Very Good
Dr Defranzo was very kind, compassionate, and down to earth. Information was easily understood and concerns were appropriately addressed
DR. DEFRANZO IS THE BEST!
He spent less than two minutes with me, did not ask any questions about how long I'd had the problem or anything, seemed in a rush to move on. I really was not sure he listened to anything I had to say.
The only somewhat negative is that I feel rushed when I see this provider. It is a very busy practice.
Highest respect for this doctor and staff. always so positive and I have always been confident in his decisions and medical advise.
I have seen *Dr. Defranzo for over 10 years since he performed my breast cancer reconstruction surgery. I have never seen a more gifted, knowledgeable and dedicated surgeon who has no ego. He stands among the best of the best. I have referred many friends/physicians to him over the years & will continue to do so.
Dr. Defranzo was wonderful. He was very gentle when injecting the cortisone shots in my finger. I appreciate his patience, gentleness, kindness and professionalism.
Needed a little more instruction on after surgery care
Very good in all.
Dr. Defranzo is very easy to talk with, has a sense of humor, makes me comfortable, is very professional.
really like our doctor and the staff. Do not feel like a number but treating as an important patient.
Best provider at WFU Medical.
Excellent doctor. Many members of my family go to him. He is extremely professional, yet has a caring and courteous bedside manner.
Let me know what's going on with me step by step?
I had asked around before deciding on Dr. Defranzo as I do not know any of the Plastic Surgery Doctors. I chose Dr. Defranzo because he has been at the hospital for awhile and has experience. And one of my co-workers works on the Plastics Unit and recommended him also.
Dr DeFranzo is wonderful, I always feel like I am in excellent hands when I go to his office. his staff is also great, they are always very welcoming. Great office team!
Excellent experience on every level.
Very good doctor. All medical places need more doctors like this.
It was a good experience.
