Is, or was, Dr. Franklin a member of the Washington Medical Commission? We do not normally collect or maintain emails or mail from physicians outside of potential complaint files. I see 3 complaints on Dr. Franklin's license with the last one in 2011. Please advise. If you have any questions or need additional information, please feel free to respond directly to this email.
