    *Dr. Karen Frankwich is a very caring, respectful and knowledgeable doctor. From the first time I met her she has sat and taken the time to ask how I'm doing, ask about my meds or any side effects and offers solutions to any concerns. She's the best doctor I've ever had! The staff are all very pleasant & helpful as well.
