Dr. B is the best! I travel almost 3 hours to see him for reconstruction due to breast cancer. All these people complaining, any time you have surgery, risk of infection is there. He treats his patients with respect and truly cares.

I went to see this doctor for wrist pain substantial enough that it has impacted my daily life- it was not a good experience. I do not feel that my concerns were taken seriously and he didn't give me the time of day. I feel used and taken advantage of after going to his office. He was very dismissive. At the end of the VERY short appointment I was told there was nothing structurally wrong with my wrist so he was unable to do anything else for me. I'm not sure if he did not take my pain seriously or just didn't care but I was told there was nothing he could do and that was it. When I inquired about seeing anyone else or seeing a physical therapist to ease the pain he said, "I don't know what a physical therapist would do because I don't even have a diagnosis to give you." I urge you to find another doctor.

I saw Dr. B for a breast reduction. After the surgery I found myself back in the hospital with an infection within 1 week. Temp 102-103 and LARGE amount of drainage coming from my breast. I eviscerated on both breast. He never acknowledge that I had an infection even though cultures came back positive. He said it was viral. He was so arrogant. My nipples are still uneven and have horrible scarring. Stay away from this doc at all cost.

I would NOT recommend Dr. Brzezienski. His breezy carelessness with my breast surgery has cost me a year-and-a-half of health and multiple surgeries as well as thousands of dollars I shouldn't have had to pay. He simply wasn't thorough or cautious enough, and I've had to pay both physically and financially.

I too am one of the MANY women he has BOTCHED in his poor attempt at reconstruction after mastectomy and breast cancer. He is arrogant and self-centered. I would never recommend him to anyone.

My experience with Dr. Brzezienski and the Hayes Hand Center was not a good one. The billing office was difficult to work with, the surgery scheduler got it wrong (scheduled me for bilateral surgery when it was actually only one hand), the results poor. I was in agony post-op, needed therapy for a couple of months and worst of all, 18 months later my carpal tunnel and trigger finger problems are worse than ever. Felt like a number, not a person.

Dr. B is awesome . I'm very happy with my bilateral mastectomy reconstruction. He has always had a great bedside manner and always listens to my concerns. Allie and the whole staff are great . I just couldn't ask for better DR and staff.

I am very satisfied with my bilateral mastectomy reconstruction.It is a LONG process. You have to be patient and follow his instructions. That's the hardest thing to realize when it comes to reconstruction. I would highly recommend Dr. Brzezienski to family and friends. Does have bed side manners, friendly And very professional! The reason for the BMI is if you lose weight after the implant it will change the looks totally! So I was patient and listened to the Dr. And lost some weight!

Cold, arrogant during one of the worse times of a woman's life. I was told that he was one of the best but I ended up with a botched reconstruction and am still struggling with the results. My fight with breast cancer destroyed me financially, even with insurance, but I am hoping someday to be able to have the botched reconstruction corrected.
