Patient Comments (6)
My son and I have both had Dr Bredenkamp for different surgeries. He is an excellent surgeon!
Long Beach, CA |
Dr. Bredenkamp may have literally saved my life. He was quick to diagnose my form of cancer, recommended treatment and was able to determine and fix issues along the way. I am now 7 years free from throat cancer and am officially a survivor. From my perspective, Dr. Bredenkamp is the main reason why.
in Trabuco Canyon, CA |
After 6 months of seeing him once or twice a month he had no idea what was wrong with my ear! I went to a different Dr and in one visit he diagnosed my condition. Bredenkamp was disrespectful and acted like he wasn't concerned about my issues. He said my issue may be something I have to live with. Turns out I needed surgery and it was imperative, not something I could just live with. I would never recommend Bredenkamp to anyone!
San Juan Capistrano, CA |
Dr. Bredenkamp thoroughly explained the nature of my condition prior to surgery. He quickly assembled a top team for a complex and very invasive surgery for oral cancer. He used cutting edge technology to shorten the time under anesthesia.
I'm sure he's a good doctor but i could never get past their voice mail to schedule an appointment. 3 days.
in Coto de Caza, CA |
The staff was great and I was called in about 3 minutes after my scheduled time. Dr. Bredenkamp was friendly and considerate abuut my concerns. He took the time to answer all of my questions and I had many. I was emotional and tired by the time I saw him and he responded compassionately.
