At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
He is a compassionate, caring physician who takes the time to listen to his patients and provides excellent care. He is always accessible to answer questions by messaging him. He responds in a timely fashion. Always takes time to explain things.
Dr. Brenner and his staff did an excellent job of reviewing my symptoms, issues, and problems with my stomach/bowel cramping and dizziness. Based on these, he determined that I was incorrectly diagnosed with IBS. Unfortunately I have suffered for over a year with symptoms that have been incorrectly treated and offered little to no relief.
He has ordered additional testing and is proceeding with referrals to address my symptoms and identify the cause and appropriate treatment. He will be speaking with my primary care physician and recommending the next steps in the process to alleviate my pain.
He is a skilled and empathetic physician.
He read all of my test results and m ew what I was there for before coming into the room. It was nice to not have to educate him on every symptom and test that Ive had done. It was also mice that he had a plan in place for treatment before I left the appointment.
He was very knowledgeable and proactive!
I'm really happy with Dr. Brenner's care and plan for me today. He listened really carefully to my concerns, asked a lot of good questions, and was overall very respectful and knowledgeable about what might be going on with me. I have seen several doctors for the same chronic problem over the last few years without answers, and after seeing Dr. Brenner today I am finally feeling hopeful about getting a diagnosis and treatment.
Dr. Brenner was very nice and talkative and had taken the time to look into my situation ahead of time. This made the conversation much more to the point and I felt like he really grasped the situation and was able to provide solutions in a quick but effective manner.
Hes the total package and professionalâ€extremely knowledgeable, empathetic to my concerns, great listener, thorough with next steps/possible treatments, and an excellent bedside manner. At age 55, Ive only seen doctors at the top of their field and I can honestly say I havent met any doctor like him...the others are extremely smart but lack communication skills and EQ. While my appointment was something I wanted to skip, (after all, who wants to show their backside or get their booty probed for rectal bleeding?) but Dr. Brenner made it easy.
He was very knowledgeable and nice and went over things. Was a little overwhelmed with info though as went fast. Very nice. As was the doctor he sent in ahead of time to go over some things. Would have liked going over them again in my own words to Dr. Brenner as the notes had some misconceptions. A good appointment though and grateful to get in. My follow up test however wasn't able to be scheduled for 9 weeks out, so that is a little disconcerting.
Patience, desire to learn underlying conditions of symptoms vs. just treating symptoms with no possible resolution.
I have been treated for this condition for over 25 years, tests and medication, this is the first time a doctor has taken the time to look into other possibilities to easier manage the illness.
Dr. Brenner was very friendly and easy to talk to and did not rush through the appointment. He was thorough and I like how he gives more natural as well as medical/pharmaceutical options. He allowed plenty of time for questions and has also responded promptly to questions after the appointment on MyChart.
El doctor es extraordinario sabe de lo que habla. Se nota la experiencia y su conocimiento. AdemÃƒÂ¡s es un doctor sper empatico y paciente con los pacientes escucha cuidadosamente, aclara dudas y da recomendaciones.
Estamos muy satisfechos con su atenciÃƒÂ³n
I have known him a long time and during all that time he has been an exceptional doctor. He is smart and knows what my problem is and how to deal with it. He always gets back to you immediately when you try to get a hold of him.
Dr. Brenner was Friendly, Professional, asked questions, reviewed my LoyolaHospital information since this was my first time at Northwestern Gastroenterology. I was sure I needed a colonoscopy but through his patient-centered approach..........I only need to take Phillips Milk of Magnesia. Hallelujah!!
Dr. Brenner spent time before my appointment reviewing my history to have a good understanding about the problems Im seeing him for. He listened to each problem carefully and took time to answer all of the questions I had coming up with a comprehensive plan to help me.
