I took my 6 year old to see Dr. Brain. We had to travel from out of town, so the staff worked him into the schedule. They made sure that I understood that there might be a wait, but there wasn't. His office was such a friendly environment! They took time to explain everything to myself and my son....more

Waited for 2 hours for a consultation. Never got to see Dr. Brain, due to another patient emergency. Of which I'm totally understanding, just wish the staff told me 30 minutes in so I could leave and come back. But no communication and confusion. Not coming back.
