About Kevin J. Franklin, M.D.


He completed his undergraduate work at Colorado State University. He then went on to earn his Doctorate from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. Growing up, Dr. Franklin wanted to care for animals. “I wanted to be a veterinarian, he says. “But, when I joined the military, I ended up working in the hospital, shadowing physicians.” He then says, “I soon became fascinated with the whole process of treating and diagnosing patients, working with people, and making people feel better.”

When it was time to choose, Dr. Franklin took a Fellowship in Gastro at Virginia Commonwealth University. There, he was drawn in by the challenges. He says, “[Gastro] comprises a combination of interaction and procedures. I get to be involved in each patient’s care.”

Looking back, Dr. Franklin remembers his days in the military. He served as a consultant to the Air Force Surgeon General. He was also involved with policy changes in Air Force gastro medicine. As a Colonel in the Air Force, he also served as Program Director for the SAUSHEC Fellowship Program. He recalls his days in Iraq as the most rewarding experience of his career. He then says, “Though my whole experience in the Air Force was inspiring—in Iraq I got to see medicine at its best. It was essential that we work as a team to care for wounded soldiers and civilians. The execution of those efforts was great to witness.”

Dr. Franklin is still providing care to his patients at San Antonio Gastroenterology Associates. Here, he delivers complete care to each patient. He says, “I try not to just give patients medical treatment. I try to help them transform their lives, helping them focus on changes that will truly impact their wellbeing.”

I was very appreciative of the referral from Essential Med Clinic to come see Dr. Franklin and staff. The staff was knowledgeable, efficient, and I was seen promptly even though I arrived to the office an hour early. Dr. Franklin is very personable and projects confidence in his craft. I left the office feeling fully informed about the plan going forward and would definitely recommend this office.

Dr. Franklin made me feel like a person whose opinion and perspective he valued. So I felt that his explanation of my care was personalized to fit me with my condition instead of just a textbook scenario. I feel I will be getting the attention, care and medical treatment that provides hope and medical success. I look forward to a healthier future with Dr. Franklin’s help. Thank you Dr. Franklin .

I have been with Dr Franklin for over 13 years. When I first begin he did everything in his power to find the problem and that is exactly what he did. Today I still see him and his services are filled with nothing but love, care and very concerned.
