Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Brand "The practice of General Surgery is my passion. I take the time to address concerns and answer questions and draw upon my years of experience to provide the best course of action which may or may not involve an operation. Though it may be a simple principle, treating my patients as I would want to be treated, it is a principle I truly hold. I take great pride in keeping pace with the knowledge essential to my profession and have retained my specialty board certification throughout my career."
