Julie Brandies MD is wonderful. I am glad that I found her.

Reviewed on March 26, 2019 7:00 PM

Somewhat felt that the dr did not take my concerns about some symptoms seriously enough. Did not seem to have all medical history available so some things from last year were not discussed. Online records are not up-to-date and don't mention all information.

Dr. Julie Brandies was referred to me by my previous physician who was busy. After seeing Dr. Brandies I knew I'd be with her forever. She's Amazingly attentive, Patient and genuinely cares about ME the patient, as well as my health. Thanks!!

Dr.Brandies is an excellent doctor. There was one occasion where I asked for a message to be sent to her concerning my current condition, 2 days after being released from the hospital for 4 days. I ended up just waiting until my appointment to see her but was greatly disappointed that I didn't get a response to my message. I have a degree and education in Health Administration and I understand how important patient care/communication is to ensure a patient stays with the practice. This was an instance where I considered finding another provider. I live over an hour away from Dr.Brandies office and for now I will stay with her because she did exceptionally well at my last appointment and has amazing bedside manner.
