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 Christine and Jon in CA March 17, 2018 for Terry L. Franklin, MD, FAAFP

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.

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.

Many Thanks! You have been an awesome leader of my medical team for almost 20 years. Life just would not have been the same without you.

Dr. Franklin recommended a sonogram of my carotid arteries. I found that I had the occlusion of a woman 14 years older than I am! I have had stroke on both sides of my Family. This simple tests and his dietary recommendations have lowered my blood cholesterol by 19 points in six weeks. I have lost fifteen pounds (and counting!) I am sure Dr. Franklin has added years of health to my lifespan.… See more

Dr. Franklin has great ears! He not only listens but he hears what I say. That is something that I've never experienced with a doctor. I'm grateful to be an MDVIP patient of Dr. Franklin's.
