Dr. Brage can barely spend more than 30 seconds with you. He made a poor decision on my injury that delayed my recovery by months. I wish I had done more research before I saw him.
in Seattle, WA |
I had a very bad experience with Dr. Brage. I had complications following a surgery he performed, and found him to be very resistant to my concerns. Getting information from him was like pulling teeth! He spent very little time with me over the course of 12(!) post-op visits (one consultation was literally less than a minute). I ended up needing two more surgeries with full anesthesia (different doc) and 3 in-office procedures to repair his work.
