Merritt Island, FL |
Excellent physician. He did my knee replacement and I had a great experience
in Melbourne, FL |
I had hip surgery less than a week ago performed by Dr. Brennan. I was born here in Melbourne and really don't care for surgeons after speaking to many patients of Dr. Brennan one included a specialist I've been seeing for many years whom he performed surgery on I could not find any unhappy patients. I have many medical issues so I take choising a Dr very seriousely Brennan is one of the rare great ones. I had a few issues I was wondering how/if he would handle them he did an excellent job.
Altamonte Springs, FL |
Dr. Brennan did my total knee and I had a great result. I am very happy with him and his office staff. He is in excellent physician. He took us time and explained everything to me and answer all my questions.
in Palm Bay, FL |
I have been a patient of Dr. Brennan's for one year and he is most definitely the "Best of the Best" in his field. He is a brilliant surgeon and a compassionate person. One reviewer recently said some untrue and hurtful false accusations about this doctor, don't believe them! Unfortunately even with a high standard of cleanliness surgical centers can't totally eliminate the possibility of spreading infections....
Palm Bay, FL |
Worst Doctor ever. Do you know his infection rate....very high. He also has Asperger's syndrome. He shouldn't even be practicing surgery. He doesn't care about his patients. He pawns them off on everyone but himself. Think twice about going to him.
Sebastian, FL |
He performed surgery on my broken pinky with rip tendons he did an awesome job and now because of him I can move my pinky again.
Palm Bay, FL |
Little communication. Each visit is about 3 minutes long including time spent with nurse taking vitals. Dr. seems to busy running all over the office instead on focusing on patient. I feel like the stitches were taken out too soon, since the Physical Therapist said stitches should be removed in 12 to 14 days, not 8. I still have pain and numbness even though surgery was weeks ago.
Rockledge, FL |
Dr. Brennan did surgery on my wrist and did a great job. I have no pain. Would highly reccomend him .His staff is wonderful.
in Palm Bay, FL |
He was highly recommended to me from my physician for a possible rotary cuff injury which was left untreated for almost one month. I was setup with an emergency appointment within days. He was very caring, knowledgeable, listened to my complaints and answered all my questions. I needed surgery and was scheduled within one week. He is a brilliant surgeon and I highly recommend him to anyone who needs orthopedic surgery!
in Melbourne, FL |
Dr. Brannan told me I had arthritis in my right shoulder which was causing my pain and that a simple operation would be needed. He would "scrape" away the afflicted area. Operation performed in August 2014. One week after operation during a 2 minute office visit (whereupon all I saw was his head poking in from the hallway through the door) when I asked him when the pain would go away and mobility would return, his reply was: "Just keep working your shoulder!" 2 years later still in pain! WORSE!!
in Palm Bay, FL |
I had wrist surgery 2 months ago. The worst experience . Doctor has no back up for personal emergency. His patients Are left hanging in the wind. Good luck with Trying to get therapy scheduled after surgery. Took him 7 weeks to get a script signed. After repeated calls to office over and over. Staff horrible no communication at all . 5 weeks after surgery I got to see and talk with him for less than five minutes. Took my wrist twisted it with out warning. had to insist on X-ray .
