Dr. Braden has been my physician for over 30 years. He has always given complete and compassionate care even though I have multiple, complex medical issues. He also keeps abreast of current research and treatment options; as a former nurse that gives me complete confidence that our discussions regarding treatment options allow me to decide which treatment is best for me.
