Dr. Brodsky is a gifted surgeon and doctor. He is caring, a great listener, and very personable. He has provided me with excellent care and treatment over the course of several years. After my relocation to another city, I continue to travel to see him as I respect his assessments and honesty for treatment options and/or surgery as he ultimately answers all questions to reach the best decision for my health.

Best Doctor among peers - His experience speaks volumes. His traditional approach to the problem understanding is exceptionally best ! Observed bookish approaches by most of the new generation Doctors, which may serve the purpose, but doesn't help it cure completely. I'm super glad to find you. Thank you very much Doc Broadsky.
