I'm sort of in between on this Dr. He took one look at me (I have some risk factors for surgery), and you could tell he wanted nothing to do with me. After a discussion, I sensed that either he was concerned about liability or concerned about me. After a 2 minute examination which was very painful (Hemorrhoids) said with my situation he would rather not perform surgery on me and gave me a prescription for a rectal pain relieving creme that was rejected by ins.co $257! 2 days later no alternative

Based on several doctors recommendations, I asked Dr. Brand to perform my surgery. I knew it would be complicated and I was terrified. He patiently explained everything to me, calmed my nerves, and 2 days out of surgery, I am Incredibly grateful to him. He truly is as fantastic a surgeon as all of my doctors had told me. I would absolutely recommend him!

He missed diagnosed the easiest diagnosis in his field. He caused me to suffer needlessly for months because of his incompetence He also cost me a lot of money After months under his care, I was in such immense pain I was going to go to the ER I called his office and the best they could do was get me in in 5 days!! I was forced to spend thousands at the ER A first year dr did in an hour what he couldn’t do in months. Pompous know it all who knows nothing Avoid at all cost

Dr. Brand is wonderful. He performed a successful surgery on our son and I would highly recommend him. He thoroughly explained the problem and his recommendations on how he felt to best proceed. He is skilled, knowledgeable and kind.

Dr. Brand is exceptional. I went to him when he was at Rush for a pilonidal cyst that had recurred after I had an open excision procedure done by a different surgeon. Dr. Brand performed the cleft lift procedure on me and I have not had a recurrence for 7 years now. He did such a good job I didn't even need to take one pain pill during my entire recovery. If you have a pilonidal cyst, don't mess around with any other doctor. Go to Dr. Brand and he will take care of you. Thank you Dr. Brand.
