    Dr. Brakstad is genuine, thorough, brilliant, and an out of the box thinker from my patient's point of view. Additionally he is compassionate, kind, and treats his patients with the utmost dignity. After suffering for three years with right upper abdominal pain, vomiting, and chronic inflammation he solved the puzzle in just one visit. I'd seen several doctors had multiple tests & ultrasounds yet no one was able to make a determination until Dr. Brakstad. I am forever grateful!!
