Ratings and Reviews
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.
Dr. Brayton had explained my surgery at my April appointment. This was a follow-up from the surgery and all went according to his initial explanation. The recovery has been excellent due in part to his clear instructions.
Dr. Brayton took the time to read through my entire health history. He discussed my condition and came up with plan. He made contact with all doctors involved . I felt relieved to know he truly understood my condition and knew what should be done to get results.
This was an awesome visit. Dr Brayton was friendly, personable and outstanding. We were first payients and didn't know what to expect. He was outstanding communicator. Great Doctor! we are so impressed with his care but as impressed with his "bedside" manner.He is a keeper!
*Dr. Brayton was competent, confident. Knowledgeable, personable, and animated. He spent a lot of time with me about my issues, explained all options, and came up with a treatment plan that will hopefully keep me from surgery.
Dr. Brayton is most caring, extremely thorough in his explanations, and very knowledgeable. He answers my and my husband's questions regarding my surgery/procedure in a manner that we understand. He checks for our understanding, and is very willing to explain more. Dr. Brayton spends as much time with us that is necessary to make sure that he has answered our questions or to ease our minds of our worries. I am thoroughly confident in the care Dr. Brayton has and will continue to provide for me. I have recommended Dr. Brayton without hesitation to people who have asked my opinion of him and those who need any type of neuro-surgical care.
Dr. Brayton was very honest and thorough in helping us understand my husband's severespinal stenosis condition. He explored every option to explore with us to help avoid surgery. He was very humble and honest about this type of surgery being out of his expertise and personally called another neurosurgeon in Chicago to help us get in to his very busy practice. We recommend this Dr to any one who wants a doctor who approaches treatment conservatively and seeks options to avoid surgery if at all possible. Pretty commendable for a Neurosurgeon!
Dr. Brayton is an exceptional physician!! I recently had my third spinal surgery with him. I have the utmost confidence in his skills as a surgeon! He is very thorough in his explanations pre and post op and makes you feel like you are the only patient he is concerned about at your visit. I will continue to see Dr. Brayton and highly recommend him to anyone I talk to who needs help with spinal issues.
Dr Brayton has been my neurosurgeon for 4 years. He is an excellent surgeon as well as a compassionate doctor. He is excellent at explaining all options regarding the treatment plan he is recommending.
Dr. Brayton is a men above men. Very classy and professional person. I can count on one hand of all of the medical doctors I have seen over the years, Dr. Brayton by far is NUMBER 1 !!!!! He is genuine, I cannot stress this enough, He is one of the most GENUINE people I have met. I was hoping to go back to work, and when he examined me, unfortunately my body is not 20 anymore, and he wanted to make sure things were healing properly before sending me back. He is concerned with my well being, I respect that in him, he does not want to see me get injured at work. Dr. Brayton, he CARES. If you could clone him..... do it.
I was a patient of Dr. Brayton's in his Naperville practice. He is a wonderful, extremely knowledgeable, caring physician who I have complete trust in. Dr. Brayton takes sincere concern for every patient as if they are the only one. He knew everything on my chart from the most recent to years back. I would highly recommend Dr. Brayton to everyone. Your are so fortunate to have him on your staff and he continues the Northwestern philosophy and is a credit to your health organization.
I was extremely nervous at my first appointment with Dr Brayton, thatvis, BEFORE he entered the exam room. When Dr Brayton came into the exam room, I can't explain why, but I felt completely at ease immediately. Knowing that he relies on his own eyes to look at your diagnostic scans, rather than blindly trusting a radiologist's interpretation, is just one way of showing that he is 100% invested in your care. Dr Brayton did not rush through our time together. I would only trust Dr Brayton with my care.
