An incredibly delightful experience!! Dr. Brandes immediately demonstrated warmth and caring, starting off with a wonderfully happy smile and a firm “two-handed” handshake. Following a rigorous physical exam, Dr Brandes spent a lot of time explaining my diagnosis and possible solutions to a problem not typically related to her specialty. In addition, Dr Brandes told me of a much less expensive way to procure one of my very expensive medications. What an extra gift!
