Patient Comments (1)
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Brien is the best doctor I have ever dealt with, and I have dealt with quite a few, both through work and as a patient. Dr. Brien is a brilliant physician, caring, and easily reachable. After bouncing around to many doctors who were unable to figure out what was wrong with me, Dr. Brien quickly diagnosed my condition and, literally, saved my life. She also maintains a very efficient staff and an immaculate office. The best!
