I had an excellent experience with Dr. Brendel. He has a rare combination of kindness and knowledge. He is up to date with the most current information concerning illnesses and treatments. He also really listened to my thoughts on treatment options and what would be most appropriate for my lifestyle and situation. What was probably most important to me was the genuine understanding and compassion I received from him. At a time when I was feeling particularly vulnerable, I think that I found a Dr. that I can put my trust in. That is invaluable to me.
