What People Say About Dr. William Brennan, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Brennan and his assistant Stephanie were fantastic the whole way through. They both took time to answer any and all of my questions (and I had a lot) as well as helping to put my anxiety at rest during a few visits. I never felt like I was just a number on an assembly line. Each and every visit from my first to my last (3 months post-op) was treated like I was their only patient for the day. Even during the recovery while still in hospital, they and their team did an excellent job explaining everything to myself and my family. Anyone who’s had surgery knows you don’t remember much right out of anesthesia but they made sure to explain and prepare my spouse for what would be expected during recovery at home, which enabled him to educate me on what to expect once I was out of the drug stupor. I cannot recommend him enough!

We are so very lucky to have such a skilled neurosurgeon in our small town. I chose Dr Brennan to do both my neck and my back surgery. He is THAT good. He and his staff are excellent with pain management and after care.

I have my life back now! My son is happy his mom can play with him again and be active with him. Dr. Brennan is a God send! His staff is remarkable and always helpful. I could barely walk before surgery and now I am running again. My surgery went fantastic, I had very little pain, and my recovery was a piece of cake! I will forever be grateful to this man. He is exceptional. Thank you, Dr. Brennan.

Excellent !!! I can’t say enough about Dr Brennan. I took my husband to see him and could hardly walk. He had spinal cord compression. Dr Brennan explained everything to us and surgery was done that WEEK!. My husband is recuperating steadily and we cannot thank Dr B and his staff enough for giving us hope and doing a great job!
