Our Experience with Dr. Braganza has been very positive. He is great with my son who has had ear problems since he was a toddler. My son just had surgery on Monday with Dr. Braganza and he was great. I absolutely trust Dr. Braganza with my son's health care.

I’ve never had the most anger and sadness after a consultation with someone that is supposed to be helpful. I was actually holding back tears waiting for my summary. This doctor was outright rude, not even introducing himself or really greeting me at all. He simply put my chart up and implied that I was overreacting, asking “do you have anxiety or depression”. He was insulted when I asked questions or expressed my point of view and sense of urgency to feel better. Arrogant and cold hearted.

1. Talked down to me 2. Didn't take the issues seriously 3. Rolled his eyes & scoffed multiple times at what I said about my sinuses 4. Didn't explain what he was doing 5. Didn't respect me as a patient 6. About the pounding in my ear - Conversation: - Me: When I have extra mucus I have a bad noise/vibration in my ear - Dr. Probably just your heart beat, next time check that - Me: It's a vibration not a beat - Dr. That's harder to figure out - That was it for the conversation
