Dr. Brand is a good gastro doctor. Very knowledgeable and caring. About 8 years ago, we always made an appointment after a colonoscopy so that we could review labs with him. Now it takes several months to get in. I find it interesting that we could get a colonoscopy faster than an actual medical appointment. I believe there is a better way for his office to manage his time but he may be dictating that. The only thing we use him for is the actual procedures. We take our test results to another doctor. I also find that his staff is slow about returning labs.

Dr. Brand was recommended by my primary Physician to due my colonoscopy. As I was being prep by a nurse Dr. Brand came to greet me with a very warm demeanor and put me at ease as he explained the procedure. After the procedure again he came to check on me. He is a very caring and professional Doctor. I highly recommend him.

This Dr. is excellent. Hard to get appointment. I called for appointment and was told I could not see him until November even though I was having a medical problem. I was placed on a waiting list for urgent care with him. Could not be on a urgent care list for any other Dr. Never have I had such a hard time relaying a msg for my Dr. and very concerned.

I had a colonoscopy with Dr. Brand last Monday. All the staff I came in contact with (Nancy, Lillian, Brooks, Dr. Kim, Connie and Trina (I hope I have this name right - front desk lady)) and of course, Dr. Brand were kind and professional. I had some issues with scheduling my appointment, but that was quickly resolved and from that moment on, everything ran like clockwork. I was very impressed with everyone I came in contact with and would highly recommend Dr. Brand and this practice.

I've been a patient of Dr Brand for approx 20plus years. Until the past two years had been very pleased . Now I can NOT get messages to him or him to return my calls. Maybe its the change in staff. Will be looking for a new doctor.

No interaction with doctor until in the procedure. Then, he spoke while my back (butt) was toward him. No pre-procedure office appointment, follow-up is by patient calling office & not them calling you. Follow up letter 3 words & no explanation. Discharge papers did not include how to reach them with questions. (No phone number or email.) Called their main number but could not get through. This was an awful experience.

Dr. Brand is a top rate doctor who is extremely professional but very humble. He shows genuine concern and takes time to listen to the patient diligently. He shows evidence of reading prior record which is very important to me. Now both my husband and I have decided to go only to him for all our gastrointestinal treatments
