What People Say About Dr. John Braxton, MD
Reply
I would recommend you get a second opinion. His patient and risk assessment and skills are poor. And if things go badly, he immediately excuses himself from the situation using the excuse that the surgery was not the problem. Talks down to the nurses and family members. Has a high opinion of himself.
