Errors in coding of invoices for a procedure he performed have resulted in a patient responsibility of $2000.00 for a procedure normally covered by health insurance at no cost to the patient. The coding errors remain unresolved after multiple attempts by the patient and contact by the patients primary physician.

I am so blessed to have Dr Brandabur as my Doctor. I have had several complicated issues and he has nailed it every time! After years of other doctors making me feel crazy about having pain they can't or don't have the experience to figure out, it is comforting to know I have Dr. Brandabur in my corner! If you need an excellent gastroenterologist go see him!!

Nice, clean and quite fast: BUT When a polyp is removed a preventive colonoscopy becomes diagnostic one. I believe it is against USDOL policy FAQs about Affordable Care Act Implementation Part XII Q5. You might be changed for you deductible and spend a lot of time fighting the charges. Also, when a patient leaves facility it would be nice to had them a piece of paper with info when they can expect detail results. I was left in the dark (or I do not remember due to anesthesia side effects)

Dr.Brandabur is the Best in His Field, I've seem Gasteroentologist's all over the West,Northwest and Southwest. I've got a Complex and Terminal Disease of the Pancreas. I've seen Him at Virginia Mason and will continue to follow him hopefully for the rest of my life, hopefully meaning the only way I would lose him is if he retired ,which would leave a big hole for a lot of patients that have had the pleasure of knowing him.
