    I am 4 weeks post surgery now and just got my cast off today. Dr. Franson is the BEST foot specialist I have ever been to. He is extremely kind, he's caring and compassionate. He truly cares about his patients and has a fantastic bedside manner, but above all of that, he is an extremely talented surgeon. I was so comprehensive about having this surgery due to all of the horror stories I had read about others who have had the same Achilles' tendon surgery with other doctors. I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Franson because so far it's been a breeze compared to others. His staff is great as well. They are all very friendly, caring and professional. The wait is never long and I always feel that he spends an appropriate amount of time with me answering all of my questions. I have never written a review about a doctor before but I truly believe Dr. Franson deserves one. I highly recommend Dr. Franson and University Foot & Ankle Institute!

    After years of chronic plantar fasciitis I'd given up running, stopped going to the park with my kids and couldn't dance with my wife. Grocery shopping meant icing my feet afterwards. I had been to 3 other podiatrists, had 4 sets of custom orthotics, a night splint boot, cortisone shots, bands, creams, you name it. I was told the only option was surgery on both my feet.

    Dr. Franson wanted to try another cortisone shot, more pliable orthotics and physical therapy every 3 days for several weeks. It took several months for my pain to go away completely but it eventually did and I got my life back thanks to Dr. Franson and amazing PT Suzanne Hawson. Trips to Disneyland, family outings and dancing with my wife became a reality.

    It doesn't end there. Crazy as it sounds, after being crippled for 3 years, 2 years later I began playing competitive tennis!

    I've seen Dr. Franson and Suzanne for a tennis related ankle sprain and Achilles tendonitis. I recovered fully from both issues/injuries. I know several other tennis players who have seen Dr. Franson and Suzanne. Whether surgery or less invasive treatment was needed, all have made full recoveries and are back in action.

    If you have foot or ankle issues don't even think about going anyplace else!

    Dr. Franson is very nice and a knowledgeable physician. I had a pretty bad break years ago and now having complications. Dr. Franson found the problem and gave me answers within days! Office staff is very easy to work with and helpful. I would also recommend his partner I can't think of his name off the top of my head, but I believe he is the only other one that works with Dr. Franson! They are both great! If you need a second opinion in this specialty I highly recommend University Foot and Ankle Institute!!

    So fortunate to have found Dr Franson. I was treated by him last year for a torn achilles tendon and today my daughter was treated by him. She's pregnant and he was very attentive to her concerns  about treatment for her toe. He's very knowledgable and a sweetheart too. The staff was friendly too  :)

    I love how Dr. Franson involves his patients in coming up with a treatment plan. I went to him years ago and when I recently hurt my foot, it was a no brainer that I would go back to him.

    But the review I really wanted to share is about Suzanne and Jasmine in the physical therapy office. In only minutes, Suzanne was able to pinpoint exactly why I injured myself and give me immediate, realistic tips to fix the pain and prevent it from happening again. The fact that both she and Jasmine were kind, caring and had a great sense of humor were a few more reasons my appointment was so enjoyable.

    I was treated by Dr. Franson last summer after waking up to a debilitating ankle pain.  I had been to several doctors in the weeks leading up to Dr. Franson's office visit with no real diagnosis or treatment.
    Dr. Franson and his staff were patient and attentive in assessing my pain source.  Within weeks of my first office visit and PT sessions with their excellent on site physcial therapy, I was seeing major improvements. Dr. Franson went the extra mile to not only diagnosis my issue, but to get behind what has caused the problem.  He ordered orthotics and spent months tweaking and adjusting until we got it just right.
    I can say 6 months later I have been able to resume all my sports activities and daily routines with a stronger foot & ankle and no signs of pain.
    Thank you!
