Dr Branin kept my father healthy and believed in quality versus quantity of life. My wife and I have been with Dr Branin pretty much since he moved to Florida. He is a no nonsense and person and I give him the highest praise I have. He caught my wife's interstitial cystitis that many specialists missed.

I have been so pleased with my care that I refer my friends and family here! Even if you aren't able to be seen by your "assigned" provider, you are able to be seen by someone in the practice in the event you need to get in prior to your next scheduled visit.

Dr. Branin and the people in his office are some of the most caring people I've met at a doctor's office. They care about me as a whole person not an illness and are very supportive. I was not happy with the other doctors I ha seen in my area and after 2 years of looking for a great doctor I found Dr. Branin.

I have been with Dr Branin for almost 20 years. He has become a friend. Almost no wait time, Friendly and competent staff. He or a colleague is available in 24 hours or less for urgent needs. Dr Branin includes whole health, not just the current reason for a visit.

The experience in this office with the staff and Dr. Branin in very comfortable. They are friendly, do not rush you, explain in a manner you can understand, and actually ask you to provide them feedback if you are not satisfied with any part of your visit. Drastically different from other experiences I have had in physicians offices! I highly recommend (and I am a fairly critical person who rarely leaves feedback)

Dr. Branin's office staff it's ALWAYS professional and try to get you in to be seen as soon as possible. Dr. Branin is the best GP I have ever seen. He has more medical knowledge than any doctor I have seen. The treatments he offers and referrals he gives are necessary and not "profit " generators like ALOT of doctors nowadays. I recommend this practice to anyone looking for timely, professional, and excellent medical care.

I have been a patient of Dr. Branin for several years. He is very knowledgeable and attentive to patient needs. Unlike a lot of physicians, he doesn't rush patients through their appointments. I've had a couple of in-office procedures done by Dr. Brannin and the experience has been excellent. I would highly recommend him for anyone who needs a primary care physician.
