I was recommended a colonoscopy which is a procedure that I was slightly hesitant to do but decided to do for my safety. Ultimately there was nothing to be scared of, I was put under anesthesia and it did not hurtwhatsoever. Dr. Braha was such a pro and I was out of the procedure in no time with no pain! I definitely recommend.

He's good doctor. He talks to patients (in this case the patient was me) as equals, even though I assume that he's making mucho dinero (like most doctors do), and I'm not. A lot of doctors talk down to patients. Dr.Jack Braha doesn't. (Or at least he doesn't talk down to me, but I assume he's the same to other doctors. By the way, he saw me in about 45 minutes, but it was at a peak time and it's understandable. Anyhow, he's so good that he's worth the wait.

My appointment with Dr. Braha was at the Ocean Avenue location. He was very friendly and easy-going in my appointment with him. I was able to ask questions like I was talking with a friend, without any anxiety that I wouldbe ignored or dismissed. Not all physicians let their patients feel as valuable as Dr. Braha does. He gave me plenty of time to ask questions and to understand why he felt that a particular procedure might be necessary. His talk is relaxed and I felt relaxed, as well, and I usually feel ill-at-ease in a doctor's office. Also, the nurse or physician's assistant (I don't know her particular title) was very friendly and informative when she discussed with me the information that I would need for the procedure that was to be done, and I didn't at all feel rushed with her, either. My experience at Dr. Braha's office was excellent. The office is easily accessible from the Avenue U stop on the Q Train, and is just a short walk from Avenue U. The only thing that felt uncomfortable was when I arrived at the building at 2579 Ocean Avenue, and I couldn't figure out how to get in the front door of the building, which was locked. There was no buzzer or door bell or anything with Dr. Braha's name on it, so I got very nervous and I wondered how I could get into the building in time for my appointment. Finally, in desperation, I had to resort to ringing a few other offices' buzzers next to the front doors because I was totally confused, and luckily someone buzzed me into the building. Just my opinion, but I think that Dr. Braha or the office manager should arrange to improve the procedure on how to get into the building; that way, a new and perplexed patient won't get worried that he won't be able to get into the building. Luckily, it was mild weather out there on the day of my appointment, but when it's 90 degrees out in the summer or if there were frigid temperatures when winter comes (all of which are inevitable), patients are going to get kind of peeved at the idea of standing in front of a large, commercial office building in the freezing cold or stifling heat and not having a clue as to how to get inside.

In my opinion the front desk staff was not welcoming, which honestly made me not want to return. When I went to the back to meet with the doctor I was definitely pleased. He is very thorough, he welcomes and answersall questions, he has a great sense of humor, has an amazing personality, and has impeccable bedside manner. I felt very comfortable with him and I look forward to my next appointment.

I like Dr. BraHa. He is very professional explains everything to you and gives you the best advise for next steps. I was a little upset that I did not get a call back on test results and had to goto the office for them but he explained that there was a mix up in the phone number. Because I like him I just let it slide. I have recommended him to friends. Also, the surgery center is excellent. When I had my procedures done,the staff was pleasant and made me feel comfortable and relaxed. The facilities were modern and clean. Overall for a not so pleasant procedure it was a pleasant experience. Patti G.
