Did nothing to help prepare us for the worst. Put us up the oldest darkest part of the hospital. Did nothing to find us other doctors at Methodist we would like. When things went wrong, left us with mediocre floor doctors who treated us like just another number and disappeared. We were in that hospital for two months and saw him twice after the procedure. What a nightmare.

I came to Dr Britz from Memphis TN by recommendation from Dr Osama Gaber. I presented with a tumor on my brainstem. I was so afraid after getting no comfort from doctors here. Dr Britz and his FNP assured me that I would be just fine. They were very confident in their abilities, I began to feel good about them too. My surgery went excellent. ICU four days and I was just amazed. I had the best hospital stay ever. He is the best and blessed. Great, Great Surgeon. I work with surgeons. I love him!
