My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My practice is about putting "health" back in health care. It's really about partnering with patients, developing a wellness plan and making the necessary changes to prevent chronic illness, diabetes, cancer and heart disease. The intimacy of my MDVIP-affiliated practice allows me to really get to know my patients and be there for them 24/7. It's a win-win situation for both physicians and patients; it's a relationship that is very empowering for patients and rewarding to families alike.

from Brad in UT March 13, 2020 for Terry L. Franklin, MD, FAAFP

I was a patient of Dr. Franklin before he moved to MDVIP, and his standard practice was very good, and very much what I had become accustom to experiencing... a month or two to get an appointment; 45 to 60 minute wait; other health workers doing things; and maybe 10 minutes with the doctor where he tells you to lose weight and get more exercise. After he migrated to MDVIP, it was amazing! I… See more

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Franklins for 12 years. We have found him to be a very knowledgeable and compassionate doctor. After joining the MDVIP program we have utilized our assessability to him often. Many times times when we were out of town or on vacation. He is always attentive and quick to respond to any of our concerns.

from Marsha in CA March 1, 2018 for Terry L. Franklin, MD, FAAFP

I was a fairly new patient when Dr. Franklin went into the MDVIP program. I really felt connecte to Dr. F and decided to join.
Dr Franklin makes me want to eat better, exercise and feel good.
I love the way he draws pictures to explain things going on in my body, and he has a nice sense of humor.
Dr. F is easy to talk to and I actually look forward to my appointments.
