Dr. Brager is an extremely competent physician who has been excellent in caring for my young son with sensory processing issues. Dr. Brager has preformed 3 seperate procedures that he needed in 2017 and exercised extreme patience and professionalism with a very anxious child.

I was having a problem with my throat. My mind tends to lean towards the worse(being a breast cancer survivor). Dr. Brager was very reassuring and put me at ease right away. My issue was minor, but he never made me feel any less important.
