Ratings for Dr. Hal M. Brodsky
My husband & I switch to Dr. Brodsky due to the lengthy wait for the other one (who was very good and knowledgeable, but always late). He's wonderful! After not seeing either of us for a year, he remembered us! I guess we made an impression on him. (Most of the time we go with each other so we don't forget anything.) He is an excellent diagnostician and has been sensitive to our out of pocket cost without compromising care, running necessary tests or prescribing necessary meds. He has a wonderful humor, bedside manner, is gentle as is possible when doing a procedure that requires sutures, provides instructions and makes sure we understand. He is one of the best doctors either of us have had in any of the states/cities we've lived in.
I don't understand the negative comments. Dr. Brodsky has been my physician for approx 19 yrs (since I moved to Gainesville as a freshman @ UF). He is personable and feels like a member of the family. I think he is exceptionally sharp as a diagnostician (many doctors are not) and uses common sense when making treatment recommendations. He considers COST as well as probable outcome and doesn't make judgments based on covering his own butt for malpractice suits, etc. If you are concerned about Dr. Brodsky's character/trustworthiness, consider that he has been practicing in Gainesville for more than 20 years; bad doctors can't stick around that long! If you need more time with him, I would suggest giving an approx time to the office staff when you make an appt. Also, consider jotting down a list of symptoms/concerns before you go in so you don't forget anything, so Dr. Brodsky doesn't have to take more time than necessary to diagnose and treat. Dr. Brodsky is top-notch!!
