Dr Brennan listened to my concerns regarding amount of anesthesia during previous colonoscopy. Made adjustments for this procedure by reducing amount and experience was improved 100%.

He's very knowledgeable, and very pragmatic. If you talk to him, he will engage, so the key is to tell him your concerns. His treatments have always been consistent with what I am willing to try, he is quite open to finding a mutual path toward a goal.
