Too much medication churning. She adds medication to manage the side effects of medications so quickly that it's impossible to track progress. When side effects of a medication are unexpectedly harsh, she blames the client.

I have been a patient of Dr Brachmann for 2 years now in Muskego. I find her very passionate and caring. As far as medication goes i am very satisfied with her recommendations for changing meds. I don't understand some of the negative reviews above. I mean nobody seems to like the Dr's in inpatient settings. I have been in inpatient 3 times now and Dr's tbere are short and brief they aren't allowed to spend ample time with you. But I must say I am glad I chose to go and stay with her. Highly rec

Horrible doctor. Did not listen to anything i was saying. Kept interrupting me; was very judgemental and flat out rude. I wouldnt reccommend her to ANYONE. AVOID Brachmann unless youre looking to get ridiculed, ignored, and brushed off!!

Dr. Brachmann is unprofessional, unwilling to listen to patient concerns, unwilling to work with the patient and medications. I couldn't believe how she talked with me in session - demeaning, rude, inconsiderate. There was no willingness to listen to my concerns, no willingness to listen to what medications I've been on in the past (what has worked and what hasn't). I wouldn't not recommend Dr. Brachmann to anyone.

Probably one of the most unprofessional medical doctors I have ever encountered. She is not willing to consider patient feedback at all. You can not ask her questions without her getting very defensive. She is only willing to spend ten minutes with you regardless and somehow changes documented diagnosis(s) and treatments. Does not remember who you are or what treatments you have had. She is also the only doctor accepting new patients in Aurora's network which should tell you something.

Dr. Brachmann was not helpful for our family. She was assigned after our daughter went through voluntary hospitalization for depersonalization, depression, and anxiety. The doctor is focused on medications, and seems to see things from a fairly narrow framework. Specifically: - She does not show compassion or caring - She has no patience: she tried 2 medications on my daughter then gave up, recommending outpatient day treatment and saying she could not work with us - after recommending outpati

Lacks professionalism, inability to accurately listen to concerns related to care, resolve issues. I was a patient of Dr Brachmann's for a while. Despite numerous attempts my mental health issues went unresolved. They actually worsened. I was put on medication that did little to solve my issues but often made me feel tired. I sought the help of a professional elsewhere and have been doing great since! I feel like I wasted years of time and lots of money. I do not recommend this doctor.
