I absolutely love Dr. Brownstein. His personality, and bedside manner are great. I was in search of a new doctor in 2015, and came across a newspaper advertisement with his picture and bio attached. I have PKD, and am in stage 4 renal failure. Dr. Brownsteins bio stated that he had experience with renal diseases, so I scheduled a consultation, and he bacame our family physician. When you're sick, and not feeling well, it's a big deal when your doctor understands, and has compassion for your plight.
Dr. Brownstein is the best primary care physician I have ever met. He is a very talented and informed Dr. Dr. Brownstein knows when and who to send you to see when you need a specialist, and who is the best in their field. I admire and respect Dr. Brownstein more than any other doctor I have ever had. I wish him only the best.
