Dr. Sarah J Brendler has the following 2 specialties
A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Sarah Brendler had attempted to treat me in 1999. I, essentially, fired her for suggesting a course of treatment that was horrific. Brendler knew I had Portal Vein Thrombosis, but believed that the PVT was due to cirrhosis, even though two different liver biopsies showed NO CIRRHOSIS. Well, I finally got a good diagnosis in 2008. I have a blood clotting disorder, wherein one factor of my blood clotting cascade is missing entirely, and another factor is over-compensating for the missing factor. If I was to take her course of treatment, I would probably have died at least ten years ago. So. Not a good doctor for me, she totally missed why I had PVT. I am still alive and happily away from bad dotors. Heh!
Dr Brendler is wonderful and really seems to care about you, and her staff are all very nice but they have dropped the ball with me on every single instance. From scheduling appointments, paperwork missing or never mailed to me, returning phone messages, I had to wait 3 weeks before they even called me back for my first appointment and I had to keep calling them to get them to call me. I hate to complain but it seems every time I deal with them there is a problem. I've never had an experience this bad at a doctors office. Dr. Brendler deserves better staff in my opinion.
Extremely disappointed. Was referred to Dr Brendler after having polyps removed in another state. This office is a mess to deal with from appointment making, to care and attention during the colonoscopy, to getting needed prescriptions after the procedure. If Dr Brendler is as wonderful as she's supposed to be she should try a harder to surround herself with people who can work efficiently as well as making an effort herself to give good care to match her reputation. Will be switching Drs as soon as I can. Her only bright spot is Amy.
I have had 2 colonoscopies within Brendler. She took the time to explain to me everything during the procedures (yes, I was awake and viewed it all). My only negative observation as I was waiting to go into the procedure was that she got very irritated one time with her staff and after she left the desk area, they all looked at each other like, oh no, here she goes on her broom. She may have had a bad day or who knows. She was calm and collected by the time she got to me. Long wait to get an appointment for colonoscopy.
No one looks forward to colonoscopy. Dr. Brendler seems to get that. She and her staff made my experience as good as it could be.
