      Very personable and has a caring demeanor. I have been seeing Dr. Branin for over five years and would not go to anyone else in Gainesville. My wife,and two adult children also are seen by him.

      Yesterday I had an appointment with Dr. Branin. I felt as if I was rushed through my appointment with him (in and out within 10 minutes). I had questions to ask however, after taking my vitals and mentioning one concern, he left to "go get a referral for me" and instead the nurse practitioner came back with the referral and wrapped up my visit within the 10 minutes. I heard Dr. Branin in the next room laughing and talking with a different patient. I felt as if my needs were not met.
      in Gainesville, FL |
      I have been seeing Dr Branin for many years and have all the confidence in him as a doctor. I have had several issues in the last few years and with Dr Branin's knowledge, each one had a positive outcome.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Branin's Care Philosophy

      It makes a difference when your physician is trained to truly listen. To pay more attention to you than your chart. To take the time to get to know you as a whole person. Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine are complete physicians who practice in every medical specialty. DOs are trained to first consider the person within the patient. Dr Branin believes that there's more to good health than the absence of pain or disease. Both he and the other providers at Alliance Family Physicians strive to help patients be truly healthy in mind, body and spirit. We don't see patients. We see people.

      Dr Branin practices contemporary Medicine with a holistic approach, believing that disease effects the "whole" person. We will do everything we can to meet your needs & expectations. Family Physicians are trained in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Orthopedics, Gynecology, Office Skin Cancer Surgery, Psychiatry Family Counseling, and much more. It is the only medical specialty whose physicians are trained to offer comprehensive care to all patients.
