Knowledgeable and trusted his decisions
It was brief and slightly dismissive.
Dr. Branch seemed very concerned about relieving my pain and getting me better.
He is a skilled surgeon. He is not interested in being a medical doctor. If he can't cut it, it's not interesting. He did not do a physical exam of any kind.
a very good experience and good results.
Excellent Surgeon, I have complete confidence in his knowledge and his skill. The spinal surgery he performed on me solved the horrible pain I was in. He always treats me with courtesy and respect. I am very fortunate to have him as my surgeon.
I recommend them to anyone who has back problems.
truly wish I had seen him years ago.
dr was extremely far behind in his schedule. the care was outstanding but the delay was one of the longest I've ever had
My wife and I both felt a sense of peace at the 1ST time we met *Dr. Branch.
I am blessed to have a Doctor that is professional and always answers any concerns I have. He is also very friendly.
Could not have been treated better.
Excellent in every way.
My experience with this office and all the employees has been nothing less than exceptional.
*Dr. Branch was very informative and answered all questions.
nurse practitioner and dr and med tech all great
Great and outstanding person.
I have the highest level of confidence in Dr. Branch. Nnot only is he a great surgeon, but his is also a wonderful human being.
My brother recommended this doctor. We drive 3 hrs. to see him.
all care received was of the highest quality and those helping were most helpful and kind
Dr. Branch's high professional standards apparently extend to all of his nurses, pa's and technicians: all were friendly, helpful and confident. They exhibited the highest expectations and seemed to be proud of the fact that they worked with Dr. Branch.
I have referred *Dr. Branch to several others and will do so in the future if need arises.
*Dr. Branch is in my opinion, the very best surgeon who could have done this procedure. I have great respect for his care, concern, and knowledge.
