Dr. Brand is an excellent doctor. His pre-surgery consultations provided the information I needed and the staff was very professional and courteous. I thought the quality of his work was high and my recovery was very quick.

I visited Dr. Brand today Tuesday 6 February 2018 at 0930 hours and was evaluated by the doctor shortly after my arrival. His administrative staff was very helpful and courteous. Dr. Brand was evaluating me for a surgical procedure and I was very impressed with his wealth of knowledge, experience & professional knowledge. He put me at ease and spent considerable time explaining to me in detail the surgical options for me to consider. I would certainly recommend him to anyone considering a surgical procedure within his realm of expertise. His initial consultation put me at ease and reduced my level of anxiety regarding surgery.

I’VE JOINED THE CROWD!

I’ve Joined The Crowd Of people that are so thankful to have been cared for by Dr Brand and his team! From the first appointment, to my follow up after surgery... this Medical Practice has been nothing short of EXCELLENT! The staff are super friendly, professional and treat you like a real person (not Just a number!). They went the extra mile getting my surgery approved by my Insurance Company. As far as Dr Brand, what can I say. Just like every review I have read about him and his team... “Truly The Best!” He talks “with you”, (Not at you), and explains everything to you on a level you can understand about the upcoming procedure. He treats you like YOU are his only concern, and make you feel like a Priority! None of these great reviews I have read are exaggerated... They are a true testimony of how confident and relieved they are that they’ve had the Pleasure of Having The BEST Care and the BEST Surgeon! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! *Dale Smith

excellent care

I learned I had a hernia and was referred to Dr. Brand and I couldn't be happier. He is wonderful and his entire staff is as well. Everything he describe to me about my procedure went exactly as he stated. I would surely recommend him you will not be disappointed.

EXCELLENT

My entire experience with Dr. Brand and his staff was nothing short of top notch! I had a hernia and was not looking forward to having surgery or even getting an IV & other prep. It was especially nice to have someone so professional treat me like family. He made me feel extremely at ease and informed. We spoke at length about the procedure, recovery and life in general. Then, everything went as planned... I even received several follow-up calls to see how I was doing. I will certainly refer everyone I know to Dr. Brand and speak highly of how friendly everyone was at his office and the Thomas Johnson Surgery Center!
