Dr. Franz grew up in Boulder, Colorado, and attended medical school at the University of Colorado in Denver prior to a residency in family medicine at the University of Wyoming- Casper.
After living in Casper, Wyoming, he became attracted to a more rural setting than what he had experienced growing up in Colorado. He fell in love with the Black Hills and liked the size and culture of Rapid City, so he began his practice here in 1987.
He originally pursued family practice because he liked the idea of getting to know patients and caring for them throughout various stages of life. He has grown to love the variety of conditions he is able to treat. He also has a special interest in wellness and preventative health.
Family and faith are the most important aspects of his life. He has six children with whom he enjoys mountain biking, fishing and seeing the beautiful sights of the Black Hills.Request Appointment
