Dr. Brain has been wonderful to myself and my daughter. He listens, asks questions, considers our pov and advises us accordingly. Dr. Brain was the 3rd doctor we saw, others were not as warm or thorough. I truly believes that he acts with my daughters best interest at heart. I have referred others to him before and will do so again.

He is very unfriendly, blunt and brief when talking to patients. I advise you to find a more human and sensitive person than Dr. Brain
