Dr. Brand is very thorough, professional, and patient. I had a gallbladder removal and liver biopsy conducted by Dr. Brand at Frederick Health Hospital. The surgery and recovery went very well. Dr. Brand and the staff at Foris Surgical Group show great care and concern for their patients and I would recommend them to anyone requiring their services.

My entire experience with Foris Surgical Group was very positive. Requesting a consultation, new patient processing, scheduling surgery, surgery prep and post surgery appointment. Staff is knowledgeable, efficient, courteous, respectful and caring. I would highly recommend Dr. Brand for general surgery. He is thorough, patient, highly experienced and I am very pleased with the results.

Dr. Brand first performed a hernia procedure on me in 2005, and the entire experience (other than, you know, not having a sports hernia in the first place) was great. Dr. Brand is extremely personable and professional, and did a great job - I was back running quickly, and when I experienced a 2nd sports hernia 10 years later, Dr. Brand was the first doctor I went to - and again, excellent results! And just a few weeks ago, third time is (hopefully) the charm, with yet another procedure taking place. The previous surgeries were all intact and successful, and Dr. Brand and his excellent team continued as pleasant and professional as they have ever been!

Dr. Brand did my Cholecystectomy and I am so thankful I had him as my surgeon. He was so compassionate, easy-going, and knowledgeable that I felt safe in his care. Not only was Dr. Brand so great, but his staff went above and beyond to make sure I was fairing okay in recovery and we’re there when I had symptoms. I’m very appreciative. If I ever need to have another procedure I would gladly have Dr. Brand preform it.

Dr. Brand, his office staff, and the staff at the Thomas Johnson Surgery Center were excellent. He saw me in the office, and then scheduled my surgery for the next day due to a cancellation. He was very thorough in answering my questions and his staff were super helpful.

Dr. Brand present the best of all things a patients wants/needs from a doctor. He was caring and informative, taking the time to explain your procedure in realistic terms. His professionalism has the cast off effect to his staff as well, with them having the same demeanor and style. No one likes to be ill or need surgery, but Dr. Brand is someone who has earned my gratitude and respect for his skills, a friendly a matter of fact bedside manner and a true caring healer style.

Dr. Brand, his staff and the Thomas Johnson Surgery Center are the BEST. Dr. Brand took my symptoms very seriously and scheduled a gallbladder removal surgery ASAP. He took out my gallbladder the day after I saw him in the office. I had been dealing with this for a year and a half and I finally found someone who took me seriously. His staff were very friendly and very understanding. They could tell I was in discomfort. From the moment I saw Dr. Brand and his staff, I knew I was in the right place. The Thomas Johnson Surgery Center staff was also very friendly and explained everything in detail. I was very happy with the decision to go to Dr. Brand.

Dr. Brand removed my gall bladder in late July 2019. He was courteous, prompt, and had a great overall bedside manner. He was available to answer any questions that I had. I'd definitely recommend Dr. Brand and Foris Surgical Group for any GI issues.

Dr. Brand was very helpful with explaining what was going on, and how he was going to deal with my newly discovered Melanoma. I had 2 surgeries, and both were as good as could be experiences. Minimal pain, and quick healing. I believe this was because of the great skills of Dr. Brand. Each follow-up visit, he was showed interest in how I was doing, and how I was healing. I am now Melanoma free and my wound is doing great.

Dr. Brand explained my options and the procedure to me very well. I felt completely comfortable with Dr. Brand and his entire staff from my first consultation through my follow up visit. After my surgery, I was contacted by Dr. Brand's staff each of the first three days following my surgery to ensure that I was recovering as expected. On the day of my surgery I was very pleased with the entire staff at the surgical center. I would recommend Dr. Brand to anyone that might require surgery.

Dr. Brand did a hernia repair for me. He is an excellent surgeon and although always professional he and his entire staff are exceedingly friendly with and concerned about the welfare of their patients. I would recommend him and his associate Dr. Artusio to anyone. Thanks Dr. Brand!

Dr. Brand performed hernia surgery for me. The facility where the surgery was conducted was very convenient, clean and well staffed with friendly caring people. The procedure went excellent, very little post surgery discomfort and I was back at work in two days. I would definitely recommend Dr Brand.

Removed my gallbladder. Office visits usually started early, as well as the day of the surgery. Very responsive and good bedside manner - he was always willing to answer my questions...explanations made sense to a me, a non-medical professional.
