Ratings for Dr. Nancy L. Brennan
There is no finer general practice doctor in Central Oregon, period. Dr. Brennan is a rare gem who not only cares about all her patients, but she also listens. When I spend time with her, I feel as though I am the only person on her schedule that day (even though I am not). After spending as much one-on-one time with you as needed, she will offer an assessment and recommend treatment in *your* best interest. A pencil-pushing bureaucrat or pharmaceutical salesperson she is not. It's very rare to find a doctor these days who genuinely cares about his or her patients *and* listens. I have found her to be knowledgable in all aspects of general practice medicine, and even well-read in areas typically outside general practice. Dr. Brennan ranks right up there with some of the best doctors I have ever known and I am honored to have her as my doctor.
Dr. Brennan is a wonderful person but doesn't seem to be "cutting edge" when it comes to her knowledge-base. With five people in our family she has missed diagnoses more than once; fortunately nothing serious. Being pushed to use the nutritional supplements she uses/sells on the side is a bit of a turn-off, too. She has a good sense of humor and her assistant/husband, Joe, is pleasant. The health care facility she is associated with is disorganized, unprofessional, and the left hand doesn't seem to know what the right hand is doing.
Dr. Brennan was nice and was great with my son. But her staff was awful and that's why we left. They have a 7 minute late policy and I was 10 minutes late and they wouldn't see us. I was pretty disappointed since my son had a rash over his entire body and it would have been great to see a doctor. I understand that I was late and at fault, but the folks at the front desk were incredibly rude and unaccomodating. We never went back.
Dr. Brennan is a very nice person but did not know much about my particular disorder & it does not seem as though she has made an attempt to learn more about it since I first came to her a couple of years ago. Because of this she can rarely answer my questions & does not seem to understand my concerns. Unfortunately she does not seem to take many concerns seriously. I have found a new doctor who after listening to one of my concerns did some tests that found I do have an issue that could have been corrected tears ago if Dr. Brennan would have been willing to do these tests. When I came to Dr. Brennan with this particular concern she basically said I was overreacting & that I was fine. Unfortunatly because of these reasons I will no longer be using Dr. Brennan as my general practitioner.
