I spent years looking for a physician who would take my concerns seriously. As a young woman, I was dismissed by many OBGYN's I had visited. I was referred to Dr Brandt by a friend. Not only did she take my concerns seriously and when multiple ultrasounds resulted little conclusion, she agreed to my hysterectomy due to my extensive medical history of pain. The surgery revealed many grapefruit sized tumors that had been causing ongoing concerns for years. I am now pain free. Thank you, Dr. Brandt

Dr. Brandt is the most amazing doctor. She is kind, understanding, detailed and has gone above and beyond for me as her patient. I have had some complications throughout my first trimester and she has always made time to see me. She even called me on the night before Thanksgiving to give me good news because she knew that it'd make my holiday better! I am so thankful that I switched to Dr. Brandt before getting pregnant with my first child and I will not go to another doctor until she retires.

I feel like Dr. Brant is always in a rush, and in too much of a hurry to answer my questions or make me feel comfortable. Appointments are short and rushed, I often find my head spinning afterwards and realize I got none of my questions answered. Ove halfway through my pregnancy now and not feeling confident.

Dr. Brandt is amazing. She has listened to every concern I have had and answered fully and without judgment. Even with a last minute trip being planned at 38 weeks she talked me through everything with traveling that late in a pregnancy. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone.

Dr. Brandt was the on call doctor when I gave birth to my baby. She was very encouraging during labor. Was very good at keeping us informed of our options and (since neither the baby nor I were in any danger - I'm sure if we were she would have told us what needed to be done to protect both lives) was willing to work with what we wanted for labor and delivery. Very gentle, yet efficient. She was very knowledgable and made sure we knew what was going on/needed to be done. Excellent care!
