Dr. Brenner is an amazing doctor, from the moment I stepped in to the door the receptionist and the nurse Anna and Maddy have given me a warm welcome. I was impressed how helpful and kind he was to me. Just like some doctors he could have scheduled several appointments to get what is possible from my insurance, but rather than money first he put his moral and work ethics to treat me humanly. What could have been three or four office visits he managed to treat me in one shot and now after the minor surgery I’m relieved from the pain I have been suffering for over a year. Dr Brenner is a man with integrity and sense of humor. His medical knowledge and experience is beyond once expectation.

I had a health scare and was referred to VA Surgery Assoc. Upon calling for an appointment and explaining the issue, I was paired with Dr . Brenner. The office scheduled me for a consult for three days later. They subsequently had a cancellation and called back to get me in within 2 days. On the day of consult, I was in the exam room within 15 minutes. Dr. Brenner is very personable and approachable. He took the time to answer the many many questions that my husband and I had. He also didn’t make me feel silly for all of the anxiety I was feeling over the possibilities. After the consult, I was scheduled for surgery that would happen early the next week. The procedure itself went swimmingly. I had no hiccups from check-in to check-out at the hospital. Recovery had been exactly as described. The results came back late on a Friday afternoon after Doc had left for vacation. He called me anyway to give the results and much needed mental relief!

I was scheduled to have my gallbladder out and called because I had pain on the other side of my back. I had numbness in my face for a couple months. They made me go to my regular doctor again for an EKG and for the numbness even though that was something I was seen for a couple times. So my regular doctor cleared me and said that I should get a CT scan of my head and said it could wait until after surgery. I already scheduled all the time off from work at a job I just started.

Dr. Brenner was amazing and professional during a very scary moment of appendicitis and an emergency csection. I appreciate his calm demeanor. I know who to look up if I ever need another surgery. Thank you Dr. Brenner!

I had a Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication with Dr. Brenner. I had an excellent experience! I would recommend him for any surgeries. Dr. Brenner has an exceptional staff. Everyone took extra time to ensure all questions where answer. They went above & beyond my expectation. Dr. Brenner is extremely knowledgeable and has outstanding bed-side manner. He even came to the hospital on his day off to see how I was doing. Was fully recovered 4 weeks after surgery.

Very friendly staff that listens. Dr. Brenner has a great demeanor who took the time to put me at ease while explaining what would be done and what to expect post-procedure. Everything went smoothly ... just as he had explained it would go.
