Skilled Hands Giving Effective Treatment In Kerrville and San Antonio
The goal Dr. Franklin has set for his practice, and the principle that guides his care, is to offer his patients a better quality of life. This principle extends from his own personal life, where he enjoys cooking, taking walks, participating in water activities, and spending time with his family. Unfortunately, many of Dr. Franklin’s patients feel embarrassment when wearing shorts and bathing suits, and they curtail their daily activities according to those feelings. Dr. Franklin works hard to give self-esteem back to his patients, and that starts with the procedures themselves. Because he believes in treating veins with a low-risk, high-reward approach, he only offers the latest nonsurgical
outpatient vein treatments. He performs all treatments in the comfort of the Vein Associates of Texas offices, and each procedure allows his patients to return to their regular daytime activities after they’re finished. For more about Dr. Franklin, or to schedule an appointment, call 210-361-2855. You can also schedule an appointment using our easy online form.
