Dr Brannan performed an intricate surgery on the inside corner of my eye. This type of surgery would have left me with a disfiguring scar had we not gone to him. I had in fact approached another well-known doctor for this problem, which was a large basal cel, and had some misgivings. We found Dr Brannon and I thank him every day for his gifted surgical abilities..

Well run office and excellent care! Very pleased.

Dr. Brannan recently performed surgery to repair my lower eyelid due to the removal of a basal cell cancer. My experience with him and his staff was impeccable. They are true professionals that really care about their patients. I would definitely recommend Dr. Paul Brannan if you are considering this type of surgery.

I saw Dr. Brannan for my droopy eyelids. He was very thorough, took the time to explain all the procedures to treat the problems I had and was very caring and detail oriented. My surgery could not have gone better. His staff was thoughtful and top notch as well. In my mind, he is the best around.

Every time I have seen Dr. Brannan, it has been a great experience. The office is so clean and the staff is so friendly. The doctor spends so much time to formulate the blending of the client's expectations and what can be realistically achieved.

I work in the medical field myself, so having a great physician and surgeon means everything to me! Dr. Brannan is so kind and caring. He takes his time with you and truly listens to your concerns. Even as important is his staff. From that first smile you see when you walk in the door, to his amazing nurse, all the way to another smile when you check out, sets the entire tone for your visit. I would recommend Dr. Brannan to anyone who is looking for a caring and reliable physician!

Dr. Brannan is simply the best!! Full upper and lower blephoraplasty and after a short recovery, you can't even see the scarring. The office is so nice and accommodating. Dr. Brannan was incredibly patient while taking the time to answer all of my questions and making me feel at east. I highly recommend this practice!!
Had wanted to think nice people, clean office, decent credentials would give great results but surgery results made me look worse. Upper and lower eye bag removal gave new eye bag shape for both eyes and added an add`l problem, a lump under one eye. One post op visit after stitch removal, which was an add`l fee. Now looking for a revision specialist.
At Aesthetic Eye & Surgical Arts, we pride ourselves on excellent surgery results and unparalleled customer service. Our practice does not and never will charge a patient for a post op fee for suture removal. If this review is not spam, and an actual patient, we would appreciate you contacting us so we can make things right. Sincerely, Paul Brannan, MD
