Rachel Francois is an incredible provider

She does an amazing job with kids! Also love how she makes parents feel like when they ask something they aren't dumb! We moved out of town but I'm not willing to switch to a new dr because of how amazing she is

Rachel showed a lot of concern and compassion for [my child]. She tried so hard to get his [medical concern] fixed or find someone who could. It was just a very tricky case!

Rachel was extremely helpful. She took extra time when I mentioned an unrelated problem and took care to make sure I was informed about a separate doctor's decision and diagnosis, that hadn't been communicated by the other doctor. She made me feel better about moving forward and helped with my frustrations. She is always very kind and never makes me feel rushed or that I'm a bother.

Rachel is always so kind and caring and compassionate. no matter what the reason is we come in, she seems genuinely concerned. she never makes me feel silly for getting checked out either. Rachel has an amazing way of engaging with the kids and they always think she is the funniest! No matter how busy she is, she always makes us feel like she has all the time in the world for us.
