Specialties

Dr. Darren M Brenner has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

frustrating, runs late, wrong diagnosis

Great doctor, terrible nursing staff

Dr. Brenner is great: knowledgeable, skilled, creative. Like a detective, he has unravelled my multiple problems and treated them one by one, finding the right solution each time. Unfortunately, his nurse almost undoes all the good he does. She is impatient, provides wrong information, gets offended at patients' questions, and blames the patient if the medications do not work!

Me, Not Computer

It is typical nowadays for physicians to spend most of their face-time with the patient not looking at the patient's face (or any other part of the patient)---rather, they peer into the computer and do not very much take history or examine---I often feel that I could have telephoned in my appointment rather than appear in person. I was impressed that when I saw Dr Brenner he had taken the trouble to review my history BEFORE he came into the room (he had seen me once before, long ago) and then interacted with me rather than his computer.

Four Stars

Reviewed my medical charts before I had my appointment and even hilighted items he had questions and concerns about. Took the time to sit and talk to me and explain things to me. Very informative and very nice!!! They only downfal is he referred me to Dr Boller who was a joke.
