Excellent surgeon!

I had surgery 2 weeks ago to have my Gallbladder removed. The Frederick Surgical Center was very nice and the staff were trye professionals. My surgery went smoothly and it's the best that I have felt in years.

Best Surgery Experience I've Ever Had

Dr. Brand removed my gall bladder laparoscopically in 2019. I had no abdominal gas pains after the procedure, the incisions healed up really well, and overall my recovery was a breeze.

Gallbladder removal

Referred to Dr. Brand by PCP. He was very quick to assess and diagnose the issue. Explained the procedure that was forthcoming in easily understandable terms. I was welcomed at the surgical suite by a wonderful, well experienced team. Surgery was brief and I was home in a matter of hours. Very little pain was experienced with minimal surgical wounds to cope with. Wonderful experience and would recommend Dr. Brand and his office to anyone. Thank you!

I had a very good experience with Foris Surgical Group, specifically Dr. Brand. He was very professional as was the office staff and the team at the TJ Surgery Center. They followed up with me the day after surgery and made me feel comfortable to call with any questions or concerns. I healed quickly and had no complications. I would definitely recommend Dr. Brand not only for his years of experience but also for his bedside manner.

Second time with Dr. Brand, and I would not go anywhere else

Dr. Brand is an outstanding surgeon. This is the second time I had my procedure with him, and it's not just how good he is as a surgeon, but it's also the Surgical Center that he is a co-owner of. The entire staff, the entire experience could not better......both times. I would not hesitate to any member of my family, or myself to be under his care again.
