Absolutely no way i could ever Thank Dr. Brazina, for his knowledge, compassion. I am a walking testament of his ability to spot on handle my lower back issues. It has been such a pleasure to have Dr. Brazina care for me, and i would recommend him and his team hands down to anyone that is looking for the best Orthopedic Surgeon.

I really appreciate that Dr. Brazina wanted me to try conservative treatment first. All the other physicians that I've had a consultation with said the only thing that would help is surgery. Dr. Brazina will try his best to keep you from having surgery.
He is a great doctor and spends time with you to let you know about all your aches and pains not just what you came in for.

Doctor Brazina is an excellent Doctor, very attentive, and explains my medical condition very well. Also he always answers my questions, his Staff is very efficient and courteous. Highly recommend.
in Palmdale, CA |
I have visited Dr Brazina three times in the past three years for orthopaedic evaluations. Each visit I found him extremely caring and personable. His reports of my orthopaedic issues are very accurate and detailed. Although not concerned in any way with evaluation of my case, Dr Brazina has twice taken extra time out of his day to counsel me on issues not related to his contacted evaluation parameters, but yet he did this as he recognized an immediate need for my well being.

This is my second sports related knee surgery and I would highly recommend Dr Branzina as a competent surgeon for the serious athlete or weekend warrior. He is an athlete himself and he had me on my feet and recovering in no time from a full ACL replacement.
