Extremely rude, extremely unprofessional. The only good part of my attempt to see her was the patient coordinator and reception staff that had to apologize and help me. Wasted my vacation time and spent 3 months on a waitlist to be told to go home because I had gotten there 5 minutes late (Im new to the area and got lost, which I apologized for when I checked in, where there were no problems). Wouldn't even talk to me in person. NOT worth the effort and here I go back at day 1 of 90.

Dr. Bremer clarified many questions and showing with pictures to explain my mother's condition to my mother, sister and I. Up until this point providers have been very vague. She helped us understand the whole picture of what do now, what to watch for, what to expect in the future. With multiple health issues in our family; we as a family want to be well informed to keep our mother as healthy as possible this provider did that. Thank you

She was downright accusatory and presumptuous about my health situation, insinuating the condition became chronic due to my fault, despite the fact I had a daily journal that would have shown otherwise. She did not review the journal (4 month log). I emailed her requesting help with an issue related to her specialty. I rec'd a CHI form response from both her and my primary making it obvious she forwarded my inquiry to my primary.I never rec'd a response to my inquiry. Communication is blocked.

After 4 months of no results, she wouldn't change my treatment plan. She told me to continue what I was doing and maybe try PT (which I had been going to for four months? Guess she doesn't read charts). When I called about getting a new treatment, she never called me back. At appointments, she spends maybe five minutes with you. I kept reminding her that I have neck pain with my migraines, but she insisted it was neurological. I got a second opinion and sure enough, I have a muscle problem

She's awful. She doesn't know what she's talking about and she's very rude. When I try getting ahold of her I never get a response so I go forever without my medicine. She's allergic to cats and since I have cats she won't come near me. I wouldn't recommend her to my worst enemy. She's a terrible doctor. Where did she get her degree? The Wizard of Oz?

Very RUDE! We saw her in the hospital and it was horrible. She interrupted all of us and made blatant assumptions that had nothing to do with why my daughter was there. Would not let her take her antidepressant which had no interaction with anything going one. In her opinion my daughter didn't need it. I guess the whole 10 minutes she saw her made her an expert on the last 5 years with her psychologist. I can't express how bad this experience was. She thinks she a God.

I had a difficult case and she did everything she could. I'm shocked that her ratings are so low.

Dr Bremer was rude and accusatory towards me. She claimed things that were blatantly false and offered little to no help with my condition, treatment or advice. Her and her office staff would not return phone calls seeking results of tests and this is by far the poorest experience I have ever had with a doctor and have experienced that all CHI doctors to be poor and dismissive with patients.
