Excellent doctor! He is compassionate, knowledgeable and gracious.
I have been under Dr. Braudhurst care for over the past year and have to say, he saved my life. He is very compationate and most important thorough. He has emphasized on many ocassions to me that he is there to do what he can for me. You don't see many doctors like this anymore.
