From Your Physician...

“Knowledge is powerful! Well-educated, well-trained doctors and well informed patients are essential for quality health care and wellness. I strive to offer my patients the type of primary care I expect for my family.”

Dr. Franco, who has been in private practice since 1985, specializes in Internal Medicine and the treatment and management of pulmonary diseases. He, along with Dr. Pohil, founded Memorial Clinical Associates in 1989.

Born in New York City, Dr. Franco received his bachelor’s degree from Columbia University and his medical degree from New York University School of Medicine.

After performing his residency in Internal Medicine, Dr. Franco completed a fellowship in pulmonary and critical care, at Baylor College of Medicine. Between fellowship and residency, he was a full time emergency physician with the Memorial Hospital System. He is a member of the Harris County Medical Society, Texas Medical Association and a Fellow of the American College of Chest Physicians. Dr. Franco is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pulmonary Disease. He is fluent in English and Spanish.

Dr. Franco believes that our healthcare system serves patients best when doctors and other healthcare providers work closely together as a team to serve patients’ needs. He has served in several administrative leadership capacities, including as a medical director with several hospitals and on physician advisory committees for various healthcare organizations.

Dr. Franco and his wife, Jan, a registered nurse, have been married since 1982 and their son, Eric, is an economics major and a talented musician. The Franco’s are members of Grace Presbyterian Church and have traveled together on several youth mission trips. Dr. Franco enjoys exercise, basketball, music, cooking and reading.

“During twelve years in private practice, I have often participated in continuing medical education activities in order to keep up with rapidly changing medical topics. I have developed an interest in Nutrition and Wellness, largely because of questions and comments from my patients.”

“Professionally, I try to participate in ways that enable me to influence others toward improved patient care and medicine.”

– Former Chairman of Medicine Section and Patient Care Committee - Memorial City Hospital
