Patient Comments (1)
CUMBERLAND |
I found Dr.Brasch to be knowledgeable and very easily explains what his findings are and the correction to be done. He has an eye model that he uses to explain. He encourages you to ask questions, but I didn't have any because his teaching was so thorough. His approach to you is friendly, but serious at the same time . You can tell he knows his stuff. His staff is friendly and competent. I would recommend him without hesitation.
