The provider was amazing. She was thoughtful, thorough, and compassionate. The office however, was not. I should've been seen much earlier than I was, and had complications because of this. I understand that every new mother thinks that they need to be seen in a prompt manner, but when you're referred with a "high risk" case, waiting weeks for an appointment is unacceptable and dangerous.

This was my first visit (new patient) to both the office and Dr Brennan, as my previous doctor retired. Very please with Dr Brennan and would recommend!

I appreciated the concern and care Dr. Brennan showed for me during this routine check-up. This was my first Pap smear, so I'm grateful to have finally gotten it out of the way. Dr. Brennan likes to get a good sample, so I will say it wasn't my favorite experience in the doctor's office but entirely necessary. Also Dr. Brennan helped set me up with the Junel FE medication and I appreciate her knowledge and expertise with that.

Dr. Brennan is the kindest most caring gentle doctor. My previous OBGYN left a few years back and I was worried I would never find someone like her, until I was referred to Dr. Brennan.

Love Dr. Brennan but the office staff is pretty gruff, and this visit I had a less than stellar experience with the nurse who took my BP and other info. That, combined with the awful experience in just getting to her office (the parking situation at this site is HORRIBLE), makes me reconsidering going to see her. Which really says something, because I've followed her from office-to-office over the past 10 years.

Met Dr. Brennan on the day of my 3rd child's birth, she was covering my usual OB Gyn. But prior to that, I've heard so much compliments and wonderful thing from my colleagues that has or had her as a care provider. When my OB left the group, that was an apportunity for me to seek out Dr. Brenna's care. And I'm glad that I was transferred over to her care. My PCP and NP at his practice also highly recommended Dr. Brennan. She had a different approach with child birthing experience. No pain, walked out of the hospital like I didn't even give birth.

Two concerns. 1. I had very high blood pressure during labor & delivery & after. This was not addressed at my 6 weeks postpartum appt. & I had to go to a different doctor to find out I still had pre eclampsia & needed medical care. 2. Postpartum depression/anxiety was not discussed & I really _____ it was. I was given a brief survey & no one talked to me.

This office is absolutly terrible in returning phone calls. I placed 4 calls into office at the request of my pharmacy who could also not get a return call or answer to their question. As to date, no phone call or prescription, it has been 5 days! In the past, with previous doctor, I would leave messages with no return call.

Reviewed on November 18, 2018 6:00 PM

The visit went very well. However, when you call the office, many times the phone rings for minutes and is not picked up and you can get disconnected or you are put on hold for a very long time-fifteen minutes. Also, the doctor has nurses talking to you so you do not have a relationship with the doctor and sometimes things are not explained to you. It is not good at all.

The doctor answered all my questions, gave me an exam, asked about how things were going for me, renewed my prescription, helped with a painful insect bite on my shoulder blade (which I could not reach) and taught me an exercise to relieve a recent, painful, pulled-muscle/spasm in my lower back. The pain had been horrible when I tried to sit-up or sleep. (I used the exercise she taught me, later at home. The "twisting" exercise worked and my lower back pain problem is now completely gone.) This doctor listens and is very considerate of my needs. She is experienced and professional. She is my primary physician. My history with this doctor goes back many years (since she was a new doctor starting-out) and this doctor has always helped me. I am glad to have found such a caring and considerate doctor.

Dr. Brennan went above and beyond. I mentioned some symptoms I had and she did not hesitate to respond to my concerns and look into them. I went home and told my husband and friends how much I appreciated she took my concerns seriously and didn't respond with 'that's part of aging' or 'that's expected and normal'. While my symptoms are related to my age and are considered normal, she immediately became proactive and didn't dismiss me. I am beyond happy with my care and appreciate her concerns.
