He is my third Gastro because my previous two refused to do more than a test or two, diagnose me with IBS, and prescribe meds that made me super drowsy. Dr. Brettholz understood my worries and made be do every test possible to rule out any other causes of my problems and thus, giving me piece of mind. I highly recommend him if anyone is looking for a proactive and friendly doctor.

Staff was incredibly efficient and very friendly. They were ready to see me before I even finished my paperwork. Dr,. Brettholz has such a pleasant and disarming manner. He does not rush the exam and takes time to engage in small talk and pleasantries. I really felt like he was fully engaged and willing to give me all the time I needed to ask any questions. And even though you know he has explained the procedures and preparations thousands of times, I felt as if this was the first time he was describing what to expect. He is a first class physician.

His secretary has a terrible attitude and he's not really present. It's a part time job just making sure they are prepared for your visit and then it's another job following up with them to get the outcome of test results and insight into your condition.

After waiting 45 minutes past my appointment time, I met with Dr. Brettholz for a follow-up appointment. He had me wait another 20 minutes after my vitals were checked by the nurse. When he came into the exam room, he was very frantic and flustered, and came across quite rude. He then spent 5 minutes reading through my charts and history on his computer, and had to look up additional information. It was apparent he had not read my test results or had a diagnosis for my stomach pain. When I asked him for more details, he seemed annoyed and he even cut me off as I was speaking. I have never met a doctor so frazzled and unprofessional before. On top of all that, he was unable to determine why I was in pain.

Dr. Brettholtz is a competent and caring physician. The front of the practice has the feel of a prison waiting room and not just because a refurbishment is long overdue. The frontend staff are tepid to indifferent. Once inside the practice the staff is friendly and welcoming.

Dr. Brettholz is an excellent practitioner and I put my trust in his abilities. He is patient, kind, and takes the time to explain matters in a clear way. I had an interaction with the office manager (I made that title up her name is Cynthia) who took the time to explain a concern to me, and I appreciate her detailed understanding of the matter and the patience she had to calm my uneasiness.

This was just a follow-up visit and I'm doing fine. But let me take this opportunity to say that Dr. Brettholz is not only one of the best physicians in his field, but he is also one of the most compassionate and dedicated doctors I've had in my 65 years - and I've had the best in New York, who also give him high marks for these qualities.

My first few visits with Dr. Brettholz were fine. It was my follow-up visits after my diagnosis that continuously got worse. I ended up in the emergency room because I was having consistent stomach pain for over 5 days and when I went in to get checked, he thought it was just cramps when it really was a flare up of my disease. I also had to change my medication multiple times and each time, it took over two weeks to get him on the phone. The icing on the cake was when I went in to get blood work early in the morning after confirming my apt the afternoon before, they could not see me because they forgot to order my blood work. All in all, it seems like he has too many patients and he can't give enough time and attention to each. I was very disappointed and will be going to a different doctor from now on.
