Very pleased with treatment from physician and staff and total result of the surgical procedure.
in Breaux Bridge, LA |
Best doctor my husband's ever been to. We struggled with his neck for years and Dr.Brennan took his time explaining the problem and what our options were. 6 months since the surgery and he's back at work and we would highly recommend Dr.Brennan to our family.
in Lafayette, LA |
2 years after surgery and still in pain my wife went back to see him.he did not exam her and said he was too busy to bother with her complaint.she came out his office crying and confused why this dr whom she once trusted would have such total disregard for her well being.PLEASE dont be misled by his 30 year old photos or the good reviews he or freinds probably orcastrated himself.dont be fooled he is from boston not the carolinas so he is not a good old boy..I am going to get an MRI for her..
in Pineville, LA |
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
in Lafayette, LA |
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.
in Abbeville |
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.
