Could not ever have a more caring an professional doctor.! I give him and his wonderful stall 5 stars John Wendt--Scottsdale, AZ.

This doctor was very short, abrupt. He did a minor procedure on my eyelid. I don't think he would have explained what he was going to do if I had not asked him questions. Everyone else in the office was fine, front office staff, medical assistant. I also saw an ophthalmologist in the same office, and she was very nice and helpful. No problems with appointment times. I just think a doctor who deals with your eyes should make an effort to explain things even if he thought my procedure was trivial.

Dr. Brems performed two surgeries, left and right eyes for cataracts and lens insertion. I went with the mono vision option, now have 20/20 in right eye, reading view in left eye. I feel like I'm in my 20's again, no more glasses! The staff is very professional, and I give the Doctor and his staff A++ for their pre and post follow up attention to detail. I would definitely recommend Dr. Brems.

Poor bedside manner, didn't listen and made lame excuses about Physics being the problem in my cataract surgery. I would suggest Run as fast as you can to another doctor.
