Terrible, don't waste your time......

He is extremely non professional as a Dr. If you're interested in his political views and stale jokes, he's your man... if you are looking for a kind compassionate Human being, keep walking. He's all about himself, period, point blank...

Arrogant & Rude!

I've seen Brenderonly twice last week I was a few mins. Late When he came in he said: "first of all if you're late & secondly refused to be weighed"" I won't treat patients who don't do what I tell them"!! I told him he lacked compassion & he said "if you want compassion go see a psychiatrist"! What a Jerk! He keeps patients waiting an average of 43 minutes! I told him "we're done"!

Good Doctor

I like Dr. Brender. He takes the time to explain everything to you and go over your information. He is thorough and kind. He even gave me some health tips. I'd recommend Dr. Brender. The nurse was super nice as well.

Wait time atrocious!

I waited 1.5 hours and never was seen by the doctor. The admin is HORRIBLE. So abrupt and rude! She makes everyone uncomfortable. Doctor Brender seems fair and compassionate, but I didn't spend enough time seeing him to know how I would rate his style as a doctor. Here's what I will say, there is absolutely no reason to have a patient wait over an hour. Also, staff should be trained to communicate in a friendly manner that there is a delay and be more apologetic. I walked and won't be back and neither will my husband. Boom two lost paying patients just like that. Very sad that this couldn't have been resolved by a quick update on the delay. I paid a nanny to watch the baby and my husband took the day off work. We lost a lot of money due to this situation. This is not ok

Worth the wait

If you take an early morning appointment you get right in but if you delay until afternoon then you are going to wait. Not by any fault of Dr.Brender. If you ask questions then he will answer them he takes his time with each patient as needed. He is very good and a rare find.
