We all love Dr Francis!

We love Rachel! She is caring, asks good questions, explains everything she does, explains where my child is at developmentally, and is hilarious. We all feel at ease when she comes into the room... she's like a whirlwind of joy! I feel so thankful that she is my child's doctor.

I dont feel like my concerns were taken care of. I was very up front that my kid has been sick for quite some time. I feel like all of my concerns were brushed aside. I've been to 4 doctors 6 times and my son is still sick, and despite my efforts I personally dont feel like any doctor we have visited has honestly cared that my son has been sick for so long and dont listen to my concerns as a parent.

Rachel was amazing. She squeezed [my daughter] in for an appointment so she'd be able to have her physical before school started and not miss her first practices. She was very thorough in her questions on [my daughter]'s health history and exam. Very happy with the care she showed.

She listened to all my questions and gave wonderful and detailed answers to myself and my children.

Rachel is always so interactive and great at talking to my kiddos instead of to me, except when needed.

I recommend Rachel Francois to anyone needing a good pediatrician
