I am a new patient and I am very happy with Dr. Brandwein. He is extremely thorough and spent a lot of time with me reviewing my history and my needs. Because he spends a lot of time on each patient, he frequently has high wait time. To me, the trade-off is worth it.

I had an appt w/ Dr. Brandwein for testing for an autoimmune condition. After waiting 2 mos for my appt, I took the earliest, I had to take vac hrs (2.5) to get to the appt early as requested by his office the day before. When i arrived, early, I checked in & pd co-pay & sat down. After about 25 minutes the nurse started to apologize to 2 others in the waiting room for their wait. I checked at desk & was told Brandwein was 1 `1/2 hrs late. When i complained i was told he always runs late.

I was TOLD by my ENT to ONLY see Dr. Brandwein when I was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease. I was lucky enough to get in on a cancellation appointment because Dr. Brandwein is quite popular to say the least. He was VERY thorough, knowledgeable and wanted to make sure that we ran all the tests possible to rule out anything else that maybe lurking. My husband said in all his years of seeing doctors, Dr. Brandwein is definitely a class act. He cares for about his patients well being.

Dr. Brandwein is a very competent and caring doctor. He patiently listens to concerns and answers questions thoroughly and in understandable language. I never feel rushed when I see him. I give him my highest endorsement, and I would encourage anyone looking for a doctor with his qualifications to seek him out.

Dr.Brandwein is very patient and thorough. He really takes his time and is very knowledgeable. His nurses are also great. They call back right away if you leave them a message. The only con is that is very difficult to schedule an appointment, but his nurses will work with you on that.
