I had Dr Braun as my surgeon in 2010 for reconstruction of my back - my back had many problems with discs and arthritis - I have a very long fusion of my spine with 2 titanium rods & screws - I healed very well after surgery - I am thankful I can walk! Not only is Dr Braun an excellent surgeon he is an excellent human being - my neck had been diagnosed with early degenerative changes in appx 1989 - I had been living with bad neck pain for many years and having regular exams & x-rays for a number of years before I met Dr Braun - I had him take over the care of my neck - it was getting worse and worse - my spinal cord was dented in by herniated discs - in 2015 Dr Braun removed 2 discs and fused together C5 C6 C7 - a titanium plate with screws was put in via the front of my neck - i have a very small incision that is in line with how my skin moves - this surgery helped reduce my neck pain tremendously - I HIGHLY recommend Dr Braun - I have trusted him with my life and would do so again

In July of 2003 Dr Braun did surgery for scoliosis on my daughter at the University of Utah. Fast forward to March 2019 and my soon to be 29 year old daughter is in the same chronic pain as when she woke up from this grueling 8 hour surgery. She was promised that when she awoken that her pain would be treated, it wasn't. Dr Braun was always very polite and courteous and always treated us all with the utmost respect. A a person, I believe he was honorable and somewhat truthful. In regards to her

I saw Dr. Braun for pain in my lower back and feet. I will say he did a thorough exam, and explanation of my condition. However, upon my final visit with him, after telling me that I was in good condition, he tells me to continue doing exactly what I have been doing. That is wear compression socks, my belt and to continue my Gabapentin. However, his office refused to give me a prescription for Gabapentin and told me to call my GP. It is their policy? He lost all my respect at that moment!

This is the worst run office I've ever had to deal with. Had to wait for weeks to see the P.A, another 6 weeks to see the doctor, only to have the office staff bungle pre-authorizations, transcript of notes, and then another bungle of pre-authorizations. Three strikes! Had to wait in the waiting room over an hour to see the doctor, another 30 minutes in the exam room, only to be treated in a kurt manner as if I were putting the doctor out. I would not recommend this office to anyone.
