Patient Comments (4)

Dr Brandt shows no compassion, has terrible bedside manners and after many visits my mother had with him, never was she diagnosed as being in congestive heart failure, as she soon later to be diagnosed by an out of the area hospital. She knew something wasn’t right and tried so hard to get answers....more

I was passing out and didn't realize my heart was stopping. Dr. Brandt brought me into office immediately and I had a pacemaker inserted the next day. I haven't felt this good in years.

I was rushed to hospital after Cardiac arrest. Dr. Brandt took my case. He was very compassionate to my family during this difficult time and saved my life. My wife and I have enjoyed follow up visits and recommend him highly.

As a patient, at first I thought Dr Brandt to be unfriendly...not a lot of eye contact, etc., but over time, I have developed the utmost confidence in him. I appreciate his manner and feel he's a bit of an introvert actually...like many of us. We've had great conversations.
