Dr. Breeding operated on my mother a few months ago, just before her 50th wedding anniversary. Several unrelated medical conditions complicated the procedure and recovery but he made certain she recovered fully. As a result, in November my 90-year-old dad and 81-year-old mom were able to celebrate their 50th with a lovely party and a fabulous Caribbean cruise all thanks to this brilliant caring man. But the story does not end there. Twice since then, I have had to visit friends in the hospital. On both occasions, I have run into Dr. Breeding. He is kind and considerate to everyone he meets. Even more impressive are all the people I have encountered that praise him as a human being and as a doctor. Our community is blessed to have Dr. Breeding among its incredible community of healers! Thank you, Dr. Breeding and team. I am sincerely grateful.

I spent 2 weeks in the hospital with a hole in my foot and Dr. Breeding is the most compassionate Dr. I ever had the pleasure to meet. He was straight up with me and explained everything to me so I understood it.His bed side manner is wonderful, He was going to do a procedure on my foot but because I was in so much pain he cancelled until I was feeling better. Dr. Breeding is the only surgeon I trust. Thank you Dr. Breeding...

Did not explain surgery results, dr breeding spent his time talking to the intern. No reason for me to have been in room. Waited over 1 hour in over crowded waiting room and then longer in room. Rushed out in minutes with no more info than I came in with. When I tried to ask questions, I was treated like I was interrupting his conversation with intern. Maybe it was an off day for him and I may have been just another patient w/ no importance, but it feels awful to be insignificant w no answers.

My initial visit was frustrating bc the room was full of interns and I was being talked over. Conditions I spent time going over with NP were lost in translation w/ surgeon; confusion when he was teaching interns versus listening to me. Surgery took almost 3xs longer than planned,slow healing. I just left my follow up appt in tears. After waiting over an hour+, then being rushed through another intern lesson, I was swept out with remaining questions, inadequate explanations, and frustration.

I'm so thankful GOD put Dr. Breeding in charge to care for me in my time of need. I had to have an emergency operation to get my gallbladder out. He was very caring, gentle with me and compassionateThank you Dr. Breeding for saving my life!!! I have a form of Autism and Dr. Breeding was able to explain the operation to me to where I could understand. When I try talking to him but couldn't get my words out. He'd say what I was meaning to say which made me feel understood. It means everything!!

This doctor is truly one of those angel sent from heaven at the time of my illness. He is not only an excellent doctor, with the greatest experience in his area, he is really the doctor that every patient needs, to get out of a critical health situation like the one I had a long time ago. I thanks God for putting him in charge of my care. My life was saved by him. Thanks Dr. Breeding.

Dr. Breeding took care of my brother twice, once in Novemeber 2016, and again January 2017. He amputated my brothers leg due to a infection that went into his bone and the second on the same leg due to the infection going into his knee, He is the most compassionate doctor i have seen in a very long time, his bedside manor is impeccable, this doctor knows you when you go into his office and not just by looking over your chart, his son who is his PA has the same demeanor as his father, recommend

VERY DISAPPOINTED in his care or should I say not care of my case. I had a appendicitis in 2015 in which he treated me with iv antiobitic in hospital for 5 days. After 3 Cat. Scans and 1 month of oral antibiotics was seen and his office and released. On February 17, 2017, I returned to the ER again. Now my appendix must be removed, but the funny thing about it is he does not have the common courtesy to talk to me when he is there! A different surgeon takes out my appendix and right hemicolectomy

Explained in detail and language that was understood by me the gall bladder procedure and the risks involved before preforming the procedure. Also I can not say enough about his bedside manor. All doctors should be like him. Office visit not until next week, but I antisipate it to be the same as his bedside manor.
