Dr Bretschnieder is a very professional, pleasant and knowledgeable physician. Her care, concern and ability to exhume such warmth(through her eyes) while wearing a mask is amazing. She listens to you, shows respect when you're talking, explains your medical issue and treatment options. Dr Bretschneider is a keeper.

She took lots of time to explain things very well and she's extremely knowledgeable. I was scheduled to have surgery and she explained why, at this time, would not be in my best interest. I really appreciated that and have great respect for her. When and if it becomes appropriate to have the surgery, I will definitely go back to her.
