What People Say About Dr. Albert Brest, MD
Reply
Dr. Brest has been my doctor since May 2002 and has been a wonderful doctor who cares. He picked a terrific doctor to do quad bypass and he visited me in hospital every day. He has kept me in good health ever since. He keeps excellent notes on each visit and is always a calming factor.
