      Dr. Brazina is without a doubt the Best Doctor I have ever had. He is the epitome of what you want your doctor to be. He is professional, knowledgable, competent, compassionate, understanding, spends time listening to and addressing your concerns before and after surgery. He even gives you his personal cell phone number to reach him directly. If you need a ta top-notch surgeon who does a stellar job on all levels of care Dr. Brazina is the doctor you want! Also, I want to mention his staff is very helpful and supportive and timely, never waited more than 5 to 10 minutes to be seen in his office. 5+ Star Rating Sharlene Stanley-Sherman Oaks Jan 2020

      Dr. Brazina is an excellent doctor. I have been seeing him for the last few years due to an injury at work. He has been nothing but friendly, reassuring, professional, and thorough. He is an outstanding surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone.

      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.

      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.
