Waste of time, Do not make an appointment thinking you will get ANY opioid relief, you will not, find someone else that you know will work with you.

FINALLY had it november 30th....

Worst visit I ever had, to travel to her is a waste of time if you want pain relief, just live with it, opioids worked for me without a problem, she will not prescribe anything like that for pain relief if you are expecting an average visit time forget it, you are always scheduled a "Nurse Visit" first, she checks your blood pressure, pulse and blood oxygen with a pulse oximeter, there is your nurse visit, and that's a separate billing, then you wait for the Doctor, and wait, and wait, then I don't know what happens, it's like she just says she's going to do all this stuff and then leaves and you have no say or input in what works for you, so then I thought asking to renew my handicap sticker or card was a no brainer and she flat out refused to do it, even after pleading, she said that was my primary Doctors Job, REALLY!, so now going home after driving a long way there that going to her is a BIG waste of time and money, Don't go there, I only went because she replaced my Doctor.

John Sprague – Dec 10, 2020
Dr Bratanow, during a pain management session, discovered a 4mm squamous cell carcinoma in the upper left line of my lung. She actively pursued this with my internal medicine provider. Within two weeks I had a lobectomy to remove the cancer (surgery was done by Dr Curtis Quinn). I am cancer free for 12 years without radiation or chemo. If undetected by Dr Bratanow, it is possible I would be dead.
