My mom had recurring colon cancer and had to have a resection of her colon. Dr. Brewer took the time to explain every option my mom had and made her feel safe in her decision. Though her surgery took much longer than anticipated, Dr. Brewer and the entire staff at Navicent Hospital were 5 star and she was back on her feet in no time! Dr. Brewer is a kind and compassionate man who is an amazing surgeon. Couldn't have had a better experience anywhere.

Dr. Brewer has done two colonoscopies for me. One ten years ago and the second last week. He is very attentive and professional in the way he conducted himself. His scheduling nurse was also very informative during the process.

Dr. Brewer is amazing and the care that he shows his patients, from the initial visit on is unmeasurable. He spent hours with me my first visit assuring that my husband and myself understood the entire realm of the needs I had surgically and more so the quality of life it would lead to. He puts the patient first- he doesn't rush himself you you into decisions that can impact your life however. He literally CARES !!!!!! This same compassionate care carries throughout the entire office
