I told 4 wrong diagnoses, by a doctor I had been going to for 2 years, but Dr. Brandes gave me the correct diagnosis his first time seeing me. I had to get a cat scan before confirming that I needed surgery, but 2 other doctors confirmed that needed surgery after looking at the cat scan as well. A week after surgery I feel great, and with no pain at all. Great job by the doctor and his staff was just as great!

After an incorrect diagnosis of my hearing issue by an urgent care doctor & my primary care physician, I was referred to Dr. Brandes. I was beyond anxious of what caused my SSHL. Dr. Brandes nurse, Monica, was one of the most compassionate and empathetic nurses I have ever met. She treated me like a family member & for that I will be forever grateful. Dr. Brandes is an exceptionally dedicated & experienced health care professional who was very thorough in his diagnosis & treatment of my SSHL. He immediately scheduled me for a brain MRI & had the results sent back to his office stat. The MRI came back negative. He was able to then begin a series of steroid injections into my middle ear. I am grateful to be able to say my hearing has improved significantly. I would refer any family member or friend to Dr. Brandes. He is straight-forward in discussing your diagnosis. Without Dr. Branes & his dedicated team of professionals I would undoubtedly be deaf in my right ear.

Dr. Brandes is a very compassionate, conscientious, and professional doctor. I had minor outpatient sinus surgery. After I went home, I developed a persistent bleeding problem through no fault of his. Living an hour away, I went to a local ER where they couldn't fix the problem. Dr Brandes was in constant contact with them. I was sent back to the original hospital by ambulance. Together with Dr Anthony Howard, they were able to solve the problem. Dr Brandes called me at home on a Saturday and had me come in for several follow-up visits to ensure no further problems. Every time that I have been in the office the staff have been very efficient and friendly. Dr. Anthony Howard impressed me with his warm empathy while portraying self-confidence and professionalism.

After an MRI detected a sinus mass I was referred to Dr. Brandes for surgery and biopsy. The mass was completely excised and determined to be a nasal "wart". I found Dr. Brandes to be compassionate, caring (called TWICE over the weekend to check on me) and extremely thorough in his written surgical report of my encounter....highly recommended!

Dr. Brandes was unable to determine what was wrong with me and essentially said I was unstable. As it turned out, he was wrong, yet did want to admit this was the case. I’d much rather a doctor admit he was wrong than seem to come off like he’d rather be right and let a parient suffer. If you have allergies (especially to metal) don’t let this doctor or his very arrogant intern, fit you with any type of implant.

Dr. Warren Brandes is an exceptional medical health care professional. I recently called the office to report that the medications prescribed for me earlier in the week were not alleviating the horrible coughing I was experiencing. Dr. Brandes called me himself on a Friday, after hours, to speak with me and suggested additional alternatives. He then followed up with another phone call on Monday to see how I was doing. He is one in a million!

Thank you to Dr. Brandes for my perfect nose! Dr. Brandes told me from the start I need a rhinoplasty and thank God I trusted him with it! I love every part of it. Dr. Brandes is a wonderful doctor he told me everything he was going to do step by step and the outcome came out perfect! Him and his staff are so nice and easy going! I’ve been to both of his offices but the Warren one I like more only because it’s closer to my house. My recovery after my surgery was great! I recommend him!

I had a septoplasty and Rinoplasty done by Dr. Brandes. . It turned out better than i could have hoped. I can BREATH!. He also reshaped it and it looks GREAT!! I did my research of many plastic surgeons and went with Dr. Brandes because of his expertise of the structure of the face. He is an ENT. Do not have a septo or rino done by anyone other than an ENT. Dr Brandes is the best. Office isn't fancy like the other plastic surgeons but my nose looks like a million bucks!

Warren Brandeis is rude and arrogant to the point that he made a family member of mine cry the day of my surgery. Thank goodness for a compassionate doctor that the family knows who happened to be in Pre-Op area talking to his patient before surgery, to comfort my family member. His office staff is very unprofessional and rude as well. They have no idea what they are doing. If you value your health, DO NOT go to Dr. Warren Brandes. He is extremely forgetful and has NO bedside manner.

Since Dr. Rochen left, the place became horrible. The staff are rude and the turnover is high. Recently they had to close this location because so many people have left. While waiting for my shot, everyone in the waiting room complained. Patients are treated like they are inconvenient. Waited to change allergists because I thought they would be difficult. They were. First they refused to release my serum until I saw a doctor (they were closing office). The so-called 'dr visits' were a joke consi

I've had severe tonsil infections in the past and needed my tonsils taken out. My Aunt told me about Dr. Brandes, who had taken hers, and my younger brother's tonsils out. Dr. Brandes was beyond great, from my first office visit to my post-surgery check up! Everyone in the office is very freiendly and down to earth and makes you feel comfortable with no worries at all. Dr. Brandes is the greatest example of a professional, humble, and warm-hearted Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine.

Dr Brandes did my septoplasty and rhinoplasty. I have amazing results. I'm very happy with the way my nose looks. It looks a lot better than what it was. He absolutely made it look perfect. I get so many compliments. The surgery went very smooth, I rarely had any pain afterwards. I definitely recommend him if your looking to do these surgeries.

The office is always very busy. There are usually 10 - 20 people in the waiting room. I normally have to wait 30 - 45 minutes after my scheduled appointment time before seeing the doctor. Not impressed by Dr. Brandes. Rather impersonal and doesn't get to know me as a patient.

My experience with Dr. Brandes was wonderful. He was very informative about my procedure and what would take place as well as he was willing to answer any of my questions at any moment they may have arrived. It was nice to feel like I wasn't just another patient to get through, but that I was actually someone looking for answers and he was going to do his best to give them to me.

I have had four surgeries all failed until, I was recommended to see Dr. Brandes. He is the best ENT doctor a person could dream of. He preformed the best surgery ever and now I can smell, taste and most importantly breath. Thank you Dr. Brandes! My only dilemma is wait time is too long and some of the staff are rude especially at the end of closing. Not professional when dealing with patience besides that it's the place to go to find relief :-)
