Dr Brasch is like the family General Surgeon and he is amazing. I came into St Peter's ER with what I thought was gas my primary said it sounds like your gall bladder go to the ER. After tests and blood work I had a really bad gall bladder infection that required emergency surgery. Even though there was a surgeon on call when I mentioned he was my doctor he was there within the hour after hours. He didn't have to come but because his patient needed him he was there. He is one truly amazing.

Dr. Brasch is an amazing surgeon. I had a small hernia that he repaired 3 weeks ago. I was nervous about scarring but I just took off my steri-strip today and you honestly can barely even see it. The incision is so fine it looks as though a plastic surgeon did it. I am so thankful to have met Dr. Brasch. From the consult to the surgery, he knows what he is doing and I would recommed him x1000

Dr. Brasch is excellent. He makes you feel comfortable, he answers questions, takes time to listen to you. He has done several appointments with me when I was seeing him for wound care and every visit went very well. He has also done three surgeries for me for hernia repairs and all with no problems. His bedside manner is fantastic and he seems to really care about his patients. I would highly recommend his care, his office, and his office staff.
