      I have already recommended Dr. Brennan to others and I had my surgery less than three weeks ago. His staff is excellent actually outstanding and awesome. Not to mention he is EXCEPTIONAL! Look it up. It means unusual, not typical, unusually good and outstanding. And I have no problem signing my name: K Lipsius

      Dr. Brennan helped my 76 year old fathers quality of life through a major fusion in his neck. He had severe spinal stenosis. So much so, when my husband needed a fusion as well, we didn't think twice. We have since referred my two brother in laws for back related issues due to an accident.

      My experience I had over the years with Dr.Brennan was the best I have had with any doctor.If I had a problem at any time it was taken care of in a timely manner.As for my back problems he will my doctor until he retires. I would recommend Dr. Brennan to all friends and family. He has the best bedside manner of any doctor I have ever used.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
