Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Brackman "The patient always comes first with our practice.  This is why the Massachusetts Insurance Commission ranked Matthew R. Brackman, MD as one of the highest quality and most efficient general surgeons in the State of Massachusetts.  Data was accumulated over five years and included procedures such as bariatric surgery, in which Dr. Brackman was 30% more efficient than other surgeons.  It also included emergency conditions like appendicitis in which he was 50% more efficient than other surgeons.  For this reason, some health insurers will require you to pay a smaller copay when you visit our practice.  They know you will get the highest quality care, without unnecessary testing or procedures."

Dr. Brackman Says:

I always pride myself on listening to patient complaints.  There is no doubt that conditions that affect ones health or the health of one's loved ones produce some very stressful situations.  Often, this stress is relieved by criticism.  I will do my best to extract the true heart of the complaint and see how it might lead me to improve my service to you.  I have a long career ahead of me, and no doubt there is
