The visit was fine but the bill that followed was insane. Especially when I was specifically told that it would not be anything out of the normal co pay amount. If you want to see this Dr., be 100% sure you have the funds to do so because what the office staff tells you that you will have to pay, is not correct. Even when you check and double check BEFORE you even go back to see the doctor. Now I'm left with a huge bill that I cannot afford and my only option is to pay or be turned over to collections. I called the office to discuss but they were unwilling to help AT ALL.
Worst doctor ever. If I wanted a sermon, I would have gone to church. He was totally rude and told me only god had answers to my questions. He was very creepy and lectured me about bravery instead of trying to cure me. Wouldn't send my worse enemy there. Stay away.
Kept saying things like I don't have all the answers, only God does. Seemed to have medical knowledge but all the weird heavy handed religious talk was not reassuring. Even if you are a person of faith that is not how a visit with a physician should go. It was kindof scary and invasive.
I have seen Dr. Bramhall over the last 2 years for chronic sinus infections. I was very impressed how Dr. Bramhall worked with me and tried alternative care as opposed to sinus surgery. After all other efforts did not yield desired results, Dr. Bramhall reviewed having sinus surgery. Dr. Bramhall was very detailed on the pros and cons. I recently had sinus surgery at Baylor Surgicare at Lewsville, Dr. Bramhall is an excellent doctor / surgeon and I would recommend Dr. Bramhall to any patient.
This doctor took out my parathyroid glands by accident. This leaves me needing a special vitamin D that is expensive and calcium four times a day for the rest of my life. If I get sick and vomit then I have to go to an ER for an IV of calcium. When I report that I don't have them to an ER doc or a new doc that I see and give my history they ask why I don't have my parathyroids and they always, without fail, say "you know that only happens in third world countries." I wish at the time this happened (2005) I would have sued him but gave him the benefit of the doubt, that it happens and now that I've read more and talked to more doctors they all agree that this was negligence. Also my procedure was a total thyroidectomy and he left part of it, which has grown back and I will need to have another surgery. Beware!!!!
DOES NOT CARE ABOUT YOU... Only the money in your pocket. No bedside manner, Skimped on the topical anesthitic... felt every pain there was whil in the "comfort" of his office. STAY AWAY!
He's a quack and very unprofessional.
He knew what the issue was with my ear and fixed. Very happy with results.
After reading the previous reviews about the office, wait time, etc., I thought you should know that once you get in to see the doctor you'll realize the wait time isn't the worst problem. Are you kidding me? I have never in my life walked out of a doctor's office more frustrated and upset! Dr. Bramhall is a MORON! Not only did he not diagnose my problem at all, he just repeated my symptoms back to me and told me he didn't know how to help me. He also said repeatedly throughout the visit that he, "could be wrong and didn't know all the answers". What??? You're the specialist! If someone comes in having an ear infection/sinusutus that lasts 5 weeks and still can't hear after 3 rounds of antibiotics, and 2 rounds of steroids... I think you should be able to tell them what the problem is and how to remedy it! Didn't you go to school to learn how to treat problems of the ear, nose, and throat??? Sadly, if you are looking to find someone to tell you what the ear looks like, repeat your symptoms back to you, and smile at you a lot than this is your man. BUT, if you have a real problem with your ear, nose, or throat I suggest you look elsewhere for a REAL doctor that can help you.

To be honest, the office staff is not all TOP NOTCH. I have worked in Medical/Dental offices before and good staff is hard to find. His SURGICAL schedule team is GREAT (the back/behind the scenes office staff is wonderful.....but the fools at the front can leave much to be desired). I will simply review this doctor this way....I have trusted him with my children (both since babies....multiple tube and other surgeries) I have trusted him with my hubby (broken nose after basketball injury.....really bad broken nose) and myself (adult surgery for tonsiel removal, deviated septum and uvula trimmed).....mind you this was after I saw the BEST Doctor in all of Dallas for the possibility of the same surgery and was so turned off would not have trusted him to water my plants!!!! I went into my surgery for nose and tonseil removal with the understanding that I was out and ANYTHING ELSE he saw that needed done to DO IT NOW not wait for another chance....this was it. He mad the WISE choice to trim my EXTREMELY LARGE Uvula (thank God he did or I would have not been able to breathe after the swelling set in) and as an added benefit...I no longer have a snoring issue that was due to the uvula issue. This Doctor may seem a bit harsh or direct.....like most surgeons he does NOT beat around the bush. Some may take this as rude, but I can tell you he is not rude just VERY knowledgeable and direct.....why waste time when you know what needs to be done. I WARN people that he seems gruff but is a BIG TEDDY BEAR and most with that prep do very well with him. If he says you need something....you or your child need it. HE IS NOT SURGERY HAPPY and has turned many away with a "you don't need this." He is VERY Knowledgeable and will not waste yours or his time......but he will ALWAYS have YOU make the final call on anything. Simply said if your kid needs tubes he will tell you but YOU need to agree and book the procedure. If you seem unsure you will go through a few more ear issues with your kid until you agree to BOOK the appointment for treatment. He is a parent and understands that he can be 100 % sure what your child needs but the parents can't hesitate.....they have to be 100% on board because they are dealing with the post surgery (and pre-surgery) child's issues and care. I hope this helps anyone looking for a great ENT and I hope this helps you meet this great Doctor with the very direct personality on your radar so not to be thrown. I can tell you that he is a loving, warm, wonderful doctor and beyond what may throw some at first (his direct or harsh seeming behavior) is a generous, kind doctor that will always look at you and your child as if you were his own family!!!!
Beautiful new building, top notch staff. My visit with Dr Bramhall was brief, but I was left feeling that he was very competent and truly c...
One of the best doctor appointments I've ever had. Dr. Bramhall spent a lot of time explaining my condition in terms I could understand. He made me feel very comfortable and at ease. I'd recommend him to anyone.
Staff is more professional and helpful than any Dr's office I have been in. Dr is wonderful with great bedside manor. Excellent place to be for care.
As far as a staff, they might as well have hired untrained monkeys! At least then, having fecies thrown in your face would be understandable. Now lets get to the unattentiveness of the staff, a ghost may recieve a warmer welcome than any patient who comes
We have seen Dr. Bramhall for the past 4 years for my son's ear issues (2 sets of tubes, plus other problems). Everyone in his office has been exceptional. We visited his office VERY regularly and had a consistent high quality of care. My only complaint is that he is not our pediatrician. I think he missed his true calling in life! He is much more personable and good with my son than any pediatrician we have ever had.
I had a very strange experience with Dr. Bramhall today. I have known him for 10 years. He took my son's tonsils out, evaluated my other son several times for a different condition, and attended to a brief spell I had with vertigo at one time. Today, a year and a half after I last saw him, he is totally different than he used to be. He was arrogant, condescending, a little hostile, triangulating between my son and myself -- just all in all strange and surprisingly out of character. I came to this website and others to see if other patients had noted the same. So far, they haven't -- but I still thought it best to note my observations. If I had met Dr. Bramhall for the first time today and he had been this sort of doctor, I would have walked out and never come back.
Dr. Bramhall is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. I was glad that I got a personal referral to him. He's personable, talks on your level, makes you understand the issues and just an all around great person. He's very knowledgable in his expertise. I highly recommend Dr. Bramhall.
