in Fort Walton Beach, FL |
I love that Dr. Brent takes time to explain what he's going to do and why he's going to do it. He treats me with respect as well and does not condescend. He's professional but approachable, and he paints clear, realistic pictures--will even draw out what he's going to do during surgery, e.g., the removal of my gall bladder--of what will be done and why it will be done. His advice on when I should have my gall bladder removed--sooner rather than later--probably saved my life--cancer-free!
