Very greatful that Dr Bret correctly diagnosed a blockage that I had several years ago. Have continued with him since then. He’s always patient with me. He takes the time to sit and explain things when ever it’s necessary.

Reasons for poor review: #1. Refused to look at my medical records from the ER taken yesterday, #2, kept telling me "You're too young to have any heart problems", #3. "He literally told me to ""take an Aleve twice a day and in a couple weeks, call me back and tell me that you hate me and never want to see me again." This man wants you out of the room faster than you come into the room. Do not waste your time with him if you are in your 20s or are in serious pain. He simply does not care at ALL.
