Patient Comments (10)
in Des Plaines, IL |
I had a serious issue, all-day pain and swelling, with my left thumb = arthritis and trigger finger. Another orthopedic dr shrugged his shoulders, was no help with a solution. Dr Brito assessed my condition, recommended an injection and therapy. After 6 weeks the thumb is like new = no pain, swelling long gone. The injection and therapy sessions have alleviated the problems entirely. It was Dr Brito's timely diagnosis and decisive action that solved the problems. He knows what he's doing.

Absolutely excellent bedside manner. Informative and patient. He performed surgery on my 13 year old. I would 100% recommend Dr.Brito to everyone I know. Also, office staff and physical therapists were excellent as well.

Dr. Brito is a very professional and talented physician. He has a wonderful bedside manor. He helped me make a full recovery after an accident involving a tendon and artery in my wrist. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking quality care.

Excellent, friendly care! I went to Dr. Brito after getting a horrible first opinion after shattering my wrist. It's been a year since my surgery with Dr. Brito and I have no issues at all. He was personable and made me feel confident in his decisions.
in Buffalo Grove, IL |
Dr. Brito is an amazing caring Human Being. He immediately took care of my broken radius on my left wrist. Dr. Brito made time to consult with me the same day of my accident and scheduled my operation the next day. I did not want to wait since my break was beyond using a hard cast. I am VERY pleased with the result - I have full range of movement & back to normal. Dr. Brito is attentive & prompt as well as the staff in the Schaumburg office. I highly recommend him for ALL orthopedic needs.

Dr. Brito immediately took care of my broken radial head (elbow). Quick consultation and surgery scheduled within 2 days. I am perfectly pleased with the result - full range of movement is back. In each post-surgical appointment, he was prompt, attentive and caring. I would highly recommend him for any orthopedic needs.
in Hanover Park, IL |
Our experience with Dr. Brito was great! My husband had to have surgery the day after Christmas and Dr. Brito made not only my husband comfortable but myself as well. He makes himself available anytime and even when my husband did not have an appointment, but had therapy, Dr. Brito popped in to check on him! He listens and makes sure to explain everything in detail so there is no questions or concerns. Dr. Brito loves his job and his patients!!! He's amazing!!!!!
