8. Normally I would have been a little put off by how short the visit was. However, even in that short period, he connected with me, heard my concerns, did a thorough exam, explained everything. I'm not sure how he did all of that so quickly, but he did. I had no concerns by the time he left the room.
Dr. Brieva is the best physician I've ever had for any condition. He is knowledgeable about factors outside his specialty. His information on diet was the reason I lost 40 lbs. and my psoriasis and blood pressure are under control.
Dr. Brieva is the best of the best. He has been able to turn my very dire situation around in ways that no one prior to him was even able to touch. His deep knowledge of my illness and commitment to research and staying current is inspiring and reassuring. He's very kind but the most important thing is his knowledge and expertise in the area of rare skin diseases. It's basically been life changing. The entire team is very, very good and really jumped in when I needed it the most. I could go on and on, but please know how grateful I am.
This physician addressed the issue that I came in for, and also arranged to take care of my annual Derm care so that I would not have to return to the clinic unnecessarily in 2 months. That was just excellent!
*Dr. Brieva is the best. He explained all treatment options well, and the likelihood of multiple dx. I work @ another health care system but always come back to see him! I trust him with my care explicit.
Dr. Brieva is simply the best. I have already recommended him to many. Being a fair skinned women - I have had skin issues my entire life - Dr. Brieva is by far the best dermatologist I have ever been to. Kind and considerate - makes one feel as if ones skin issues are just part of life - and that he will provide the best procedures to keep me healthy at all times.
I greatly appreciate seeing Dr. Brieva for his great skill in his examinations, recommendations and treatment. I don't want to see other physician for dermatology needs. He catches problems very early when they are most easily treatable.
Dr. Brieva and his interns were very rushed, spent very little time with me, barely reviewed my skin for moles, and seemed annoyed that I asked for skin tags to be removed. I found the experience to be uncomfortable and somewhat belittling.
Dr. Brieva is fantastic. I saw him for the 1st time a couple years ago with a skin condition that went misdiagnosed for months. He diagnosed me quickly and treated me successfully. I was so relieved. Again I'd developed another odd skin condition 4 months ago. Doctors could not figure it out. I went to Dr. Brieva again with confidence knowing he would get to the bottom of it. He did! it is a rare condition I'm getting the treatment needed. He cares about his patients and his diligence, knowledge, and confidence is the best I've seen. you know you're in great hands.
Although there was a mix-up in the length of appointment time scheduled, Dr. Brieva explained what happened and fit me in for a longer appointment within a week. He seemed very concerned about my health issue and assured me his team would find answers for me. I left feeling very confident in Dr. Brieva's ability to help me resolve an issue that's been unresolved by other physicians for over a year. He had a very good bedside manner.
Dr. Brieva is wonderful! I have a very specific and rare condition, and he takes the time to understand how I'm doing and also takes the time to be sure I understand everything about my treatment. I am very comfortable with the care I receive.
Dr Brieva is the BEST! he listened to my concerns, answered all my questions, discussed current evidence about the treatments I asked about, and was proactive with my treatment. I'm very thankful of the time he takes with me and that he always makes me feel that I'm a part of my treatment choices! he puts my mind at ease w/ how to best treat my conditions , and always makes me feel like I'm in the best hands possible to treat me! he really does put my mind at ease , and I remember thinking when I left, HE is worth every trip downtown for my appt! HE IS THE BEST!!!
Dr. Brieva is awesome! He sets the standard for what a physician should be. He made me feel like my health really mattered to him. He is clearly knowledgeable and competent in his field. He identified a health problem four other physicians missed. He never appeared rushed or wanting to get out of the room. He answered my many questions without annoyance. He repeated medical terms without annoyance. He did not make me feel stupid. He allowed me time to talk. I felt like he was looking out for my best interests. He's the kind of person I would like to have a cup of coffee with.
Dr. Brieva, is the KINDEST, MOST CARING DR. WE HAVE EVER MET. HE ALWAYS MAKES SURE HE HAS ANSWERED OUR CONCERNS AND VERY GOOD EXAMS,my Husband doesn't like going to any Dr. but he truly likes Dr. Brieva. Dr. treats him so nice.
Dr. Brieva is incredible; so clearly has advanced expertise in the area of rare skin diseases. He also really conveys his concern and caring, and is very dedicated and available to helping one truly heal.
Dr. Brieva. is an excellent doctor . he has tops in his field and extremely knowledgeable reliable and dependable . I have been coming to him for over 20 years, and have referred many patients to him his expertise is five star!
Dr. Jouquin Brieva was efficient and very quick. I would not recommend him to a friend that needs hand holding and a lot of verbal interaction. I appreciate his speed and was happy to get back to work...word on the street is that he is quite brilliant and that is what I care about.
Here's the thing about Dr. Brieva...he sincerely cared when I was covered in blisters and needed to be cared for. I may not always understand him, but I think he's a pretty good Doctor. And as long as I have this disease, he'll be my Physician.
Dr Brieva seemed very interested and concerned with my problem. After many doctors who could not offer any answers or hope Dr Brieva seemed to know just what my problem was and immediately brought in another doctor who has special experience in a special area. It was the first encourgagement I have received in 2 years.
we would recommend Dr. Brieva to anyone who would need a Dermatolofist. what a grand Dr. I had a suspicious mark on my cheek, so Dr. Brieva made sure I was relaxed and understood what he was going to do.
Dr. Brieva is close to genius level in his field--diagnosed and successfully treated a rare condition that had left my other practitioners baffled. He is very friendly, explains everything carefully and thoroughly. His diagnoses and therapies are exceptionally adroit. I understand why he is so busy and have no real problem waiting to see him because once I see him my time proves to be very well spent. He is an outstanding medical practitioner.
Dr Brieva is the best! I'm usually very anxious walking in but he always puts my mind at ease, listens to my concerns, and works with me to come up w/ a plan. I don't like having to travel downtown for my visit, but to see him I would ( and do) make it a point every time!
The Doctor was running very late and he was kind. My appointment was rushed he was behind he did apologized about being late. I really liked the staff and the Doctor. I get some patients need more attention.
I've seen dr brieva for many years and I find him to be among the most friendly and approachable doctors. however he's never on time and always seems in a hurry to get the exam done. after waiting 45 minutes past my appointment, which is average with him, an apology would be appreciated as would a sense of focus on me and my exam
I regularly see Dr. Brieva and am pleased with his attention To my concerns. He let's explains my dx , and let's me help decide what treatment we both think will give me the best outcome. also he always welcomes me with a smile and remembers me, which means a lot! I know the sheer volume of patients he sees, and he never makes me feel like a number, but a valued patient!
