When a suburban PSA test result was too high, I wanted the best Doctors for a second opinion. I networked extensively. Now I'm a very grateful patient of Dr. Brannigan. In addition to his renowned academic credentials [100+ published articles] and love of training future Urologists, Dr. Brannigan's bedside manner is attentive, warm and empathetic. He listens and is very skilled at explaining complex medical problems. I'm a married father of 5, very grateful for Brannigan! Bill from Barrington

Dr Brannigan came highly recommended from my physician. It was all negative from there on. The consultation involved a cramped room, with a dozen of us, scheduling the same procedure. It was a video from the 1980s on a 17" old computer monitor. After the bill that was several hundred dollars, I scheduled my appointment. He's busy, and is booked for 2 1/2 months. Well I get a letter in the mail two weeks before my appointment that it had been cancelled. And then was put to the back of line
