Dr. Bragg 's office wouldn't even give me a appointment and I have been in pain for over a decade. Don't have anything good to say about this practice. Do your self a favor and see some one else. This place is nothing special! They are don't care! Unfortunately yours, Dwayne

After cervical fusion surgery in 2009, the scar tissue impinged on the nerve worse than the herniated disk and I lived in pain for six years. Every drug imaginable--including the opioids, etc.--had been tried without success. My doctor recommended Dr. Bragg and primarily through physical therapy, I got more relief and functionality in six months than I had with all the other attempts. I strongly recommend her to anyone in pain who doesn't want unnecessary surgery or drugs.

I am so grateful for Dr Bragg. She has utilized many techniques and strategies to alleviate my pain and stress. She has shown remarkable concern for my Conditions. She comes highly recommended from our family.

Dr. Bragg is great! She is very caring and really knows what she's talking about! I always enjoy my visits with her and she has been very helpful with my condition!
in Virginia Beach, VA |
I have been seeing Dr. Bragg for years and have always had a great experience. She takes her time and always gives many options to help with my pain. I have had times that I needed therapy and I was able to do so in her office. There are many alternatives to medication and Dr. Bragg offers a Great variety. She takes her time with each exam and makes sure I have a full understanding of my care plan.
in Kill Devil Hills, NC |
Every appointment was a disaster! I had no other option but to see this Doctor. She is argumentative, never Listens, compares you to other patients, spends a lot of time talking about her personal life and problems. Writes false reports, very unethical. Please do not see this Doctor unless it is a last resort. She also encourages pain medications, often at levels that are intolerable then reports that one is drug dependence. Terrible nightmares before and after seeing this Doctor.
in Virginia Beach, Va |
Dr. Bragg is an outstanding Doctor. She takes her time and thoroughly treats you.
Washington, DC |
I was refused to be seen due to not having a hard copy of insurance card, which I wasn't informed of needing. I had the phone app and printed documentation plus my insurance provider even called to authorize and fax over needed paperwork, but they turned her down also. Approximately 20 minutes after leaving the receptionist called me back only to tell me that they can not provide care and have no recommendations. Poor staff attitude and doctor, considering refusal due to these circumstances.
