Dr. Brenner is a goldmine in the MD field! He was calm, pleasant, and not rushed, or distracted, with me. I felt like a valued patient. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Brenner! And by the way: Kudos to 2 staff I interacted with! You know how to treat your patients!

Office is clean. Tries to see patients on time. he was good. He is not an 'expert" and told me the doctor I had been seeing knew more than him..but for a common and not rare problem he is a qualified nephrologist. I am sure the average patient would be quite satisfied. I have a rare condition that is hard to treat and diagnose the source..he may have to refer me out to an environmental medicine hopsital as he agreed there are NO environmental doctors in my area.NONE.. (Envronmental doctors deral with toxicity to hwavy metals--lead--arsenic--water toxicity-aspestos..not easy to find )....But in general was SATISFIED
