RUDE AND CONDESCENDING

This was the rudest person I have ever encountered! I took my 85 year old mother to see him and he talked down to her and even mocked her accent! All he wanted to do was argue with her what illness she did or did not have without even reading her history or medicine list. Do not go to this man! We walked out midway through the exam and he tried to block the door with his chair. He would recieve a less than one star if possible!

Worst Doctor Ever

Dr Branch was rude, disrespectful, condescending, mad, angry and so many adjectives I could go on for an hour. And to think we paid to see him and to be treated this way. He needs to get a bedside manor and realize he is nothing without his patients. I would not recommend this dr to anyone for anything.

One Star

After a ct scan of my wife's throat at The villages hospital , Dr Branch ENT was called in. After a laryngostopy he told my wife, me and her sister she had FOURTH STAGE CANCER. Surgery was needed asap, to include a tracheotomy, removal of cancer, vocal cords, and voice box. If all went well she would have up to five years to live. We had her sent to UFhealth Shands hosp. in Gainesville, fl. The surgeon there said no Doctor should diagnose cancer without biopsies. It turned out to be a bad infection. This after children flew and drove to be at their mother's side from out of state. Branch caused days of unecessary grief and fear.
