this was my first appointment with Dr.Branchs; I was VERY IMPRESSED with him: his professionalism, kindness and knowledge as well as his EXCELLENT bedside manner. In addition to giving me an "elbow bump" and washing his hands as soon as he entered the room, he sterilized his stethoscope prior to and following checking my heart/lungs, which pleased me. He is a NUMBER ONE health care provider!!!
