Dr Brand recently performed surgery to remove a Lipoma from my back. He and his office staff and surgical center staff were professional, friendly and welcoming. The surgery went well and I was amazed I had very little pain afterward.

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Brand, his staff at the Foris Surgical Group and the Frederick Surgical Center. I developed a unilateral inguinal hernia and found Dr. Brand after doing a lot of research on surgeons, repair techniques and patient experiences. His office staff were great to work with and were able to see me right away (2 days). I met with Dr. Brand and discussed the treatment options. He took the time to understand my concerns and to completely explain the process. His repair technique (plug and patch) is widely accepted as a best practice - part of my research. The actual procedure took less than an hour (4 hours arrival to heading home). It has been two months now and I have had no issues with recovery. In fact, I was off of pain meds in a day after the procedure and was up and about the next morning. There was only slight swelling and minimal bruising. The outcome was far better than I could have asked for and I highly recommend Dr. Brand and his team!

Dr. Brand provided a thorough consultation for a needed hernia repair. The surgery was a complete success and I experienced only a little discomfort during the recovery process. I had no need for the prescribed pain medication.

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.
