My mother was transferred to East Jefferson to the care of Dr. Brenner from Gulfport, MS. After reviewing her case, he was able to direct us to another facility where a physician with a specific tool could actually treat her more effectively. He wasted no time making the referral and getting my mother transferred over while communicating her needs to the receiving physician and hospital. We will be forever grateful to him because the move saved her life!!

Totally went down from years ago! You have to wait a week or longer to get a call back. You have a test done and don't get the correct diagnoisis. You find out months later that you have a diagnosis after you where told the test was fine only because you requested a copy of test and find out for yourself!!
