    There's usually a wait to see Dr. Brainard, both to get an appointment and to see her in office, but the care that she provides once you do see her is excellent. You can tell that she genuinely loves being a doctor, and taking care of her patients.

    Dr. Brainard takes months to see for a new patient appointment and one to two for follow ups. (If you are ill others in the office can see you right away.) Wait times can be lengthy. That said I have never had a doctor so excellent before. She takes plenty of time with each patient (which is why she runs behind) and is best for those who want to manage chronic issues and achieve the best health they can. She helped me after many other docs couldn't.

    Dr BRAINARD has been my doctor for 12 years.... I can't say enough good things about her. She has been compassionate and has even called me at home herself, after hours to follow up on my test results.... I would highly recommend her to anyone.
