    Dr. Franklin was very professional and explained things much more thoroughly than any other ophthalmologist I have seen at UK. Her beside manners are great. She listens and answered my questions when I had any.

    I waited 2 years to make this appointment because my experience last time I had an eye exam was not good when I went elsewhere. The contrast in the two experiences was quite noticeable.

      First opthamologist at UK that really listened and didn't make quick assumptions about care based on my age. Also clear about what she was finding without me having to ask. She even told me what my vision is (20/25). Believe it or not, that information usually isn't shared without the need for me to ask. I have much confidence in her abilities.

      I had been seen by my care provider (eyes) previously when she was substituted for the person I had an appointment with originally. I went back to her when my most recent care provider left UK-HMO. She is great and I would recommend her to anyone.

      I had met *Lucy Franklin when she saw my late husband. We were impressed with her concern for the patient. I was happy when I learned I was seeing her. She is indeed one in a thousand.

      My first provider, don't recall her title, was very good, moved me thru all the procedures very efficiently but still answered my questions and was very personable.
