Dr. Breeding is an Angel in scrubs !! My 84 yr old mother's life was saved by this wonderful surgeon ! His bedside manner is the most gentle and caring I have ever witnessed. He is a Doctor who CARES ABOUT his patients! He works tirelessly to help people ! A+++++++

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

Dr. Breeding is a very caring and thoughtful surgeon. He listens intently and then completely explains what needs to be done. Excellent vascular surgeon.

Physician stated patient did not have blockages yet foot turned gangrenous. Never spoke with me, had to have nurses read info off notes to find out what was going on.
in Spring Hill, FL |
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.
in Brooksville, FL |
Explains in plain English in a calm and gentle manner. Very intuitive-listens with complete attention then knows the questions to ask based on patients description of problem. Sooo happy to be employing Dr Breeding for a second time!!
