Insurance she accepts information is wrong.

I tried to make an appointment with her and when I told the receptionist I had Blue Cross she told me Dr. Brainin only accepts new patients with Viva health insurance. Is this even allowed in her contract with BCBS?

Awesome!

Dr. Brainin is without a doubt, one of the best internist in Alabama. She shows a great deal of compassion and concern for her patients. She is thorough and very knowledgable in providing care to her patients. She answers and addresses all of my problems and concerns and never rushes or hurries through any of my visits. I absolutely love Dr. Brainin and her staff, especially her nurse Rebecca. I am going to hate to see the day when Dr. Brainin is no longer at UAB/Hoover. Her shoes will definitely be hard to fill! Dr. Brainin is AWESOME!!!

Dr. Brainin never made me feel rushed during my appointment. She did a full assessment on me and spent plenty of time asking about my family history. I would highly recommend her!
