Very "old school" but this man knows his business. No computer in the office, doesn't take credit cards, phone and fax are the same but that is not a bases for choosing a doctor. When you speak to this doctor he listens, takes his time and talks TO you not AT you. I would highly recommend him.

This doctor knows dermatology. I went to several doctors before Dr. Brendese and they made my condition worse. This doctor fixed my issue ASAP. I cannot praise this old school dr.enough. He is amazing!
