I've been seeing Dr. Brunengraber for 3 years. She always greets me warmly, is truly interested in my health and goes out of her way to make sure she's considerate during each exam. When I've had an issue, she is knowledgeableand professional in finding the best solution. I'm more on the menopause side of the equation so I appreciate her guidance through this phase. I highly recommend her!

Doctor is wonderful. However, between being brought in the room and undressing and being seen by the doctor, I had to wait around 45 minutes. That's 45 minutes of being half naked and cold. Feel like it shouldn't be like that.

A very strong first impression. I was increasingly unhappy with my OBGYN of 10 years, but too scared to make a change. Happy I found Dr. Lisa. She seems well informed, empathetic, and really took time to listen to my concerns and explain options.

She is great. Procedurally with the office, the info I submitted online didn't go through and I had to do it again at the office. I also had to wait 30 min. But the doctor herself and the nurse were warm and knowledgable.

Aside from the nature of the visit, I would recommend Dr. Lisa. I did have to wait 10-15 minutes after my scheduled appointment time before seeing her. Despite that, Dr. Lisa was very nice, answered my questions, and the appointment was relatively quick.

Simply put, she is the best and despite moving, should we get pregnant again, we will travel to wherever she is practicing just to have her as our doctor. No one sweeter, smarter, more caring, understanding, or personable. Just a greatall around experience and a magician with the actual labor. You will feel safe and go through the entire process with complete confidence.

Lisa has been my doctor for a little over a year, and she is honestly the gold standard. She clearly explains everything she is going to do, and patiently and helpfully fields all of my questions. I struggled for some timeto find a birth control pill that works for me, and she presented all of my options clearly. I trust her completely and am so glad to have found such a great doctor.
