Specialties

Dr. Gary J Brenner has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Dr. Brenner was completely useless and knew less about nerves than I do. He was brazenly inappropriate (telling multiple completely inappropriate jokes when I am in disabling pain), dismissive, NOT at all helpful, and over an hour late. Saw me for 10 minutes despite having given me a "45 minute" appointment slot. Unbelievable for an MGH MD/PhD to be so useless. DO NOT GO

Abrupt, rude and defensive

As long as you don't ask him any questions about your health, he's fine.
