He’s been my cancer oncologist for 14 years. Very direct and honest. Staff is very caring.
Dr. Francisco has been amazing. He is very caring and provides information clearly and directly. This is so helpful when you have cancer. He is always supportive and willing to research and answers all my questions.

I had a video visit and Dr Francisco was great. He clearly explained what I had and what my options were and what to expect with each option. He gave me the facts and let me decide my procedure.
Horrible. Just an awful man, very rude and intimidating unless you agree to everything he suggests. I never believed an oncologist might push chemo on a person solely for money and then I had to meet with this man. Would never see him again. He was also extremely rude to his staff members all three times I saw him, in front of me and my husband

Condescending, patronizing, rude, would rather die consumed by cancer than go back to see that man.
