First time there and the whole staff was courteous and professional, Dr Bryan was very patient and knowledgeable with my questions
in St Petersburg, FL |
Very personable Doctor and staff.
in Pinellas Park, FL |
Dr. Bryan is an amazing surgeon with a knowledge base that’s second to none. I’m extremely pleased with his work and the opportunity his skilled hands have given me to be a part of my friends and family’s lives for many years to come. His PA's are skilled but some lack compassion and have no bedside manner. His office staff was very friendly during scheduled appointments but were slow to get back with me when I had pain issues/concerns outside of an appointment.
Clearwater, FL |
Excellent surgeon. Bypass surgery was performed without any problems. Frankly, I was surprised at the low level of pain, and my wife was surprised at the shortness of hospital stay and low maintenance on returning home. Prior to surgery, Dr. Bryan explained the procedure, and he took time to answer many questions. Post-surgery, he and his excellent physician assistants visited each day when I was in the hospital. I've had two pleasant visits to his office after surgery.
in Largo Fl |
DrBryan and his staff were excellent in every respect. I cannot thank everyone enough for what they did for me. My recovery is going well and I can look forward to an enjoyable future thanks to them
in Pinellas Park, FL |
I would highly recommend Dr. Bryan to anyone that asked. His expertise and experience was more than evident in his "bedside" manner. I felt I was in more than capable hands. Dr. Bryan made me feel at ease and walked me through every step thoroughly.
in St.Petersburg Fl |
Everyone is very helpful,all of my questions and concerns was discussed.Everyone was polite & informational. The office was very clean&comfortable.I would quickly refer friends& family.
in St Petersburg, FL |
I am not sure I would be here if were not for Dr. Bryan. I knew I was not feeling good but did not realize I needed a quintuple bypass.
Clearwater Beach, FL |
He was fantastic
in tampa, fl |
Dr Bryan took the time to explain the necessity and urgency of my quadruple bi-pass surgery and gave of his time for my family to arrive before operating. The results are nothing short of amazing. Within 3 days I was up and walking and within 4 days walking twice as far. I was released then and was able to walk 1/4 mile the next 2 days and 1/2 mile the 3rd and from then on. Trust me people, this Dr. knows what he is doing and probably saved my life. Recommend him?? To anyone. Indeed! S de Silva.
in St Petersburg, FL |
Dr Bryan was very patient and understanding in explaining why and how my triple bypass surgery would be completed. He explained the procedure and I had complete confidence it would be a success. My family asked how I was so calm, I replied Dr. Bryan gave me a feeling of confidence.
in St Petersburg, FL |
Dr. Bryan is a Rock Star. I was a high risk re-entry patient that Challenged the good doctor. I had an old graft stuck to the center of the back side of my sternum. Dr. Bryan had to do some crazy stuff to get it loose before he could open me up. Once he was in he re-grafted 3 arteries and replaced a valve and I feel great again. I would heartily, (pun intended), recommend Dr. Bryan to anyone needing heart surgery.
