Ratings for Dr. Jodee R Brandon
I've always been comfortable around doctors but this is the first time that I've ever felt that I wasn't listened to and my thoughts were completely disregarded. She will ask if you have questions, answer them, but then act like her answer should be taken as the irrefutable truth. Definitely is the stereotypical pompous MD.
TERRIBLE doctor. Went to her for almost 2 years before I finally had the worst experience. Had her through my whole pregnancy and she was far too rushed and didn't even make it to my delivery/labor that lasted for 29 hours! The nurse ended up delivering my baby. But, the final straw was something different. Went to her many months later with period/spotting issues. I was in a fair amount of pain too. She did an exam of just feeling with her hands and asking questions and found "nothing wrong." She did not think it was needed to have an ultrasound or even any blood work done. I left her and went to a different ob/gyn who is a dream. That doctor questioned me as to why an internal ultrasound wasn't ordered when I saw her for the first time. Explained that Dr. Brandon said nothing was wrong. New doctor did it and I was told immediately, I had a TUMOR in the wall of my uterus that was the size of a golf ball. Needed a hysterectomy. Could have gotten a lot bigger had I stayed with Brandon.
At first, I didn't like her- she talks fast and I didn't feel the caring, maternal vibe I was hoping for. But, I've seen her 5 times and I think she's fine. Not my favorite, but not terrible. I was annoyed that she didn't explain the difference between or express a preference for the first or second trimester screenings, and so I picked the second trimester screening. Then, I did some internet research and found that the first trimester is considered a better time to find genetic issues, so I had to call and change my mind- I wish she would have provided more info. on the difference to begin with.
Dr. Brandon's office is always jam-packed & it can be hard to get an appointment with her, but if you push the lady, she'll get ya in, no matter what! If you have questions, she is more than welcome to help! She seems to be in a hurry, but really, I think she just talks fast. Her nurses are all very nice! She's very personable and seems to have a lot of energy.
