My experience with Dr. Brandner is always excellent. He always listens and is always thorough and is never rushed. He is very personable and always entertaining. I love his bedside manner. Never stuffy and very relatable. I could not imagine having another doctor! You could say he is the family's doctor. My husband, mother in law, sister in law and he was also my brother in law doctor before he passed.

Dr. Brandner has been my doctor for over 15 years. He always listen to my concerns and questions. He makes sure I have what I need to improve or maintain my health. I know it will take time to see him but that also mean he is doing the same for each of his patients. Providing good healthcare and service is worth waiting to me. I don't want my doctor to be in a rush. Thank you to Dr. Brandner & his staff.
