Do not go here!! The worst experience every time I saw her.

A disorganized office & strange/greedy doctor made this the worst practice ever!!. I waited at least 1 hour every visit. When I came for results of a full workup the Dr. insisted on so that she could submit a high bill to insurance even though I was healthy, the office said they found an issue, when there was none. She also misdiagnosed me even though I insisted she was wrong & prolonged my illness for weeks. For any refill, the Dr. requires a visit every 3 mths (not 6) so she can bill insurance, even on medications that are meant for daily use.

Caring and knowledgeable

Dr. Brand is wonderful. She sits down and reviews you medical history with you. Doesn't have you fill out a multi page questionnaire then not even look at it. i have been seeing Dr. Brand probably for over 10 years. In recent years the wait has been greatly shortened and her office staff is pleasant and efficient.
