While Dr. Brannan was extremely busy, he always takes the time I need to clarify any findings and ask any questions I may have. He's also willing to explore treatment options in order to personalize my treatment and provide the bestcare possible. I have the utmost trust in this physician and consider him a key member of my medical team. Rick D

Went to Dr. Brennan because he had an early appointment. Read reviews about him but decided to give him a shot. I won't make that mistake again. I will wait to see Dr. Argo from now on. Came on and spentat most 5 minutes with me diagnosing my back pain, but didn't tell me what the issue was. Just said keep doing what your doing, left the room and the assistant came back with a physical therapy script. Last o saw of the doctor and had to ask the assistant questions I had.

Dr. Brannon has no bedside manner. Did not tell me what made my back hurt, just said I had previously had an injection so we would do it again. Seemed to be in a hurry to take time with me. Such a difference between the doctors in the same group?

Very brusque, little eye contact. Completely ignored my concerns about a steroid injection based on a bad experience I had with that treatment a couple of years ago. Wrote an order for spinal injection and would not talk about physical therapyuntil I had had injection. I must add that he took the time to show me my xrays and explain to me what he was seeing diagnostically. That part was helpful. But I won't see him again for further treatment.

Dr Brannan has been extremely helpful since I started seeing him. Great bedside manner and seems to really care about what is going on as far as my back pain is concerned. If I could just find a pain management drto work with and as helpful as Dr Brannan then my pain struggles might come to an end. But yes I highly recommend Dr Brannan

Have had 4 surgeries (with different doctor's) from knees to neck and all of them were a hugesuccess. Have not seen a doctor I wouldn't go back to see. Hopefully it's not needed

Dr. Brannon's session was excellent. Tthe wait to see him was very unacceptable. I was in the waiting room for 35 minutes before going into the exam room and then waited in the exam room for an additional 30 minutes beforethe Dr. came in. More attention should be made in scheduling appointments.
