Christina Casumpang in Philadelphia Pa. – Apr 13, 2016
I've been a patient of Dr. Brezin for 25 years. I had a kidney transplant in 1991. I even endure Rte. 95 traffic driving from Trenton NJ for my checkups because I have such faith in his care. He knew that one of my anti rejection drugs was toxic to my kidney..if he hadn't been so alert to my test results my kidney would have rejected about 15 years ago. He also picked up a heart problem that resulted in open heart surgery as well as early detection of skin cancer? Dr.. Brezin is truly my hero.

I've been a patient of Dr. Brezin for approximately 15 or more years. I was recommended to him by my Mother, she has been a patient of his since 1998. Hands down Dr. Brezin is the best Doctor I have encountered (and I have seen many in my 51 years of life). He is very thorough and is an expert in his field. He has been with me throught 2 kidney transplants and I am very thankful for him.
