Dr. Brignoni is a true professional and by this I mean she gave me some pretty bad news but completely explained all that will and maybe involved. Since then she has been there for me every step of the way, spending as much time I needed and I've never felt rushed. Although it was bad news I'm glad she's the one that delivered it because her professionalism, compassionate listening and responding to everything I said. This is a Dr. that I would recommend to anyone.

Dr. Brignoni is just awesome. She is passionate about helping people. She took her time explaining my disease, what to expect, treatment options, and side effects. I feel she is truly passionate and loves what she does. She cares for her patients and wants to help them maintain the best quality of life possible.

GEM! She's caring, loving, thorough, extremely knowledgeable & puts you first. She gives 100% of time to her patients & reason for long waits at times. She asks about my family & remembers their names! She is 100% dedicated to making her patients better! She has a family & is a great mom balancing her family and career. She makes patients feel like family! In her waiting room alone-feels like a party as everyone exchanges hugs & kisses with her! I've NEVER seen anything like it! She's amazing!!!

My initial impression of Dr. Brignoni was so positive. She listened, took me seriously, and answered questions well at our first appointment. Unfortunately, that level of attention did not continue. Over the next six months I came back for many rounds of tests and followup. Her office staff lost two of my scheduled appointments altogether, so I showed up and found no one there; they changed the time on me without asking on two other occasions. Promised phone calls and followup never happened.

stay away from this office. they do not address your issues and the staff is so untrained. They have no clue what they are talking about. As for Dr. Brignoni she is making a fortune doing nothing more than running a Botox clinic. This she does once a month. why does she has people lined up and waiting for hours for a treatment that doesn't need to be scheduled like this? Why? Because she only works maybe 3 days a week. she brags about being a great mom of 4. stay home
