Patient Comments (1)
Long, Island, N.Y. |
Dr. Braunstein was very patient, and after a quick discussion and examination he diagnosed a problem that had bothered me for months. After explaining to me what the condition was, and what caused it, he described exactly how to manage it so that it would not plague me anymore. He was very understanding and extremely knowledgeable. After seeing Dr. Braunstein and following his advice, I've been healthy and free from my condition for weeks now, and I have not felt this good in quite some time.
