Dr Brodsky was professional, informative and friendly. He made himself available to answer any questions. I didn’t feel rushed or uncomfortable. His staff were also pleasant. My only issue was finding the office. Northern Blvd is a major streetbut the medical office is on the inside of a building I didn’t expect. I didn’t know there was a small parking lot. I parked somewhere I shouldn’t have (shh).

He is very professional and although this is just my consultation appointment, he seems very thorough in his approach to helping me solve my problem. He even gave me a medicine to try to give me temporary relief because he knowsI'm not well and there is a wait before the results of my testing come back. That is very appreciated!

Dr. Brodsky is one of the most professional and caring doctors I know! I have been seeing Dr Brodsky for many years and for every visit I have had I have walked away knowing someone is there for me and caresabout what happens to me. Dr. Brodsky has a wonderful bedside manner. He never forgets that he is a physician, who specializes in gastroenterology; he is willing to help you in any way he can. It's too bad he couldn't be everybody's PCP!
