I can not believe the negative review about Dr Brennan. I have nothing but good things to say about him and he truly saved me from this horrible thyroid problem I had. He explained everything very well to me about this disease and when I had question he patiently answered them to the fullest. He also referred me to one of the top US Surgeons there is to do my Operation. . I am pleased and I thank God for finding Dr Brennan .Waiting Time and Refill is NOT HIS JOB and should be adressed wStaff

I have had a horrible experience with Dr. Brennan. I live over an hour from his office, after waiting 6 months for an appointment, I arrived to my appointment to wait an hour an a half for a 3 minute appointment. The Doctor did not listen to any of my concerns but said he would base my 'care' on land. I was told I would hear back about my results. No call was ever received. 3 times in 11 months I have been without medicine due to refill not being called in even after I call the office 6+ times.

I went to see him for my thyroid condition and he basically told me to stick with my primary care doctor to treat my thyroid. This doctor is not up to date on current treatments. He would rather treat diabetes patients.
