Dr. Brief has a great bedside manner and really cares about your health. I recently went to Dr. Brief after battling with pain for 6 months. He is someone who wants to get the bottom of your problems, no matter how difficult they are to diagnose. I would recommend him to family and friends.

I had a bad break with complications. I feel Dr. Brief performed a miracle on me-my leg is great and feels even stronger than it did before. :) Dr. Brief is an amazing surgeon and I consider myself SO lucky to have been in his capable hands! I can't recommend him more highly. He is a true professional in every sense of the word, and a wonderful and compassionate doctor.
