Because I had a hernia, my primary care doctor recommended that I have a consultation with a surgeon. As I have used Dr. Brand in the past, for a minor surgery, I made an appointment to see him. The office staff were very friendly and helpful. The waiting room was very clean. Dr. Brand explained exactly what needed to be done to correct my hernia. He answered all of my questions and was very reassuring about the procedure. I was able to schedule an appointment quickly. Overall, everything went very well and my recovery went extremely well. I definitely will recommend Dr. Brand and Foris Surgical Group to my family and friends in the future.

I recently had a hernia repair done by Dr. Brand. I couldn't have asked for a better experience; even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Everyone at the office and the surgery center were extremely friendly and professional. The nurses at the surgery center made me feel very comfortable and explained everything since they knew I had never been through this process before. Very happy with the experience.

After meeting with Dr. Brand on the first visit I was very much at ease. He was so caring I knew I was at the right place. Everyone at the office was the same way. I felt like I had been going there for years. I never felt rushed at any time. Also the office and his surgical center runs like a well oiled machine.

I found Dr. Brand to be very forthcoming, congenial and an excellent practiticioner. I had him repair an inguinual hernia on both sides. His technique and follow up both times were excellent. Hopefully, I won't require his services again but if I do, I would highly recommend and use him again.

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.
