Ratings for Dr. Walter D. Bramson
Bramson's first question during a "physical exam" (really an interview) was "What color do you think our hair will be after the rapture?" I think that says it all. If you want a minister, this is the place. Office quoted $175 to get a no-refill prescription. Total bill exceeded $900. Irrelevant testing done, probably because the office has that equipment. Would not recommend.
I came in as a new patient. When I walked up to the front desk, the MA Carol was very accommodating. She helped me fill out my forms! Even though she was really busy, she actually sat down with me and filled out my papers because my dominant hand was injured. She forewarned me about a long wait because the doctor was behind, but that it would be worth it because I wouldn't be leaving with questions unanswered. She was right. He spent the same amount of time with me as I waited. Then, when it was closing time, she stayed longer to make my blood test got done. I love this office, and it's convienance. Bring a book, because you'll wait, but it's definitely worth your time.
It all started off great with Dr. Bramson - He was concerned and caring about my husband's brain injury and my health. However, during a crisis..his nurse "Gwen" never gave him any messages that were urgent! She was very rude to me and due to their screwing-up my yearly physical scheduling became nasty with me in a public waiting room! I am always professionally polite and I expect the same in "support staff." Lastly, a receptionist reading my lab results, with a unilateral statement of "You'll live" is unacceptable! I was also given medications I didn't need and not told of the danger of taking them or trying to stop taking them. I will not go to anyone who lacks credibility and integrity when it comes to my health.
Went in for first time visit. Office staff rude...ignored me while downloading religeous quotations, never made eye contact. Sloppy job taking blood pressure, said it was normal when it was actually 140/94 and why I was there. Waiting room was dirty and needed vaccuuming and dusting. Sat in exam room for alomst 1 hour 20 minutes while doctor was with no other patients. Heard nurse tell him 2 times I was in exam room that I was waiting. Started looking around exam room due to bordom and saw all cupboard doors covered in flyers with religeous and political opinions and seminars...nothing on medical issues. Exam room was filthy with cob webs in the window, floor dirty and the exam table was black with grime and filth, looked like it had not been wiped down or sanitized in decades. After waiting over an hour another patient came in and the Dr took her ahead of me. I walked out and told the staff I would be finding another Dr and to not bill my insurance or cash my co-payment check.
Doc Bramson is a great listener and has a vast knowledge disorders. After years of stomach discomfort and countless doctors and expensive tests, Doc Bramson diagnosed me after my first visit. He hit the nail on the head. My quality of life is better since I met Doc Bramson!
Best doctor I've had in years. Will spend time answering your questions, is very knowledgable and if you need more care than he can give, he only refers patients to very good doctors/specialists. One of the best parts about seeing him is he doesn't make you feel like you're just another patient in his patient mill, you feel like you matter.
GWEN THE NURSE IS THE HARDEST WORKING WOMAN ON THE PLANET. AND STILL MAKES TIME FOR EVERYONE. DR. BRAMSON IS THE BEST DOCTOR ABOVE OR BELOW 4,000FT. CARES, LISTENS, HE SAVED MY LIFE FOR REAL. HE RAN A BLOOD TEST. DURING A CHECK UP, AND SPOTTED I WAS DANGEROUSLY LOW ON BLOOD. I HAD GONE TO HOAG HOSPITAL TWO WEEKS BEFORE, TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM. WITH A BLOOD CLOT AND HOAGS DOCTORS MISSED THAT, LITTLE FACT . HAD BRAMSON NOT SPOTTED HOW DANGEROUSLY SHORT ON BLOOD I WAS, I.WOULD HAVE DIED!!! I HAD ULCERATIVE COLITIS, TAKING BLOOD THINNERS MADE MY BLOOD SO THIN I LOST HALF THE BLOOD IN MY BODY. DR. BRAMSON CAUGHT THIS FACT AND SAVED MY LIFE AND CURED MY COLITIS. I HAVE SEEN MANY DOCTORS OVER THE LAST 22 YEARS. BUT NEVER HAVE I SEEN A BETTER DOCTOR OR SOUL. DR. BRAMSON IS THAT RARE JEM, TRUST IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART IN A CLINICAL SITUATION. DR. BRAMSON IS THAT RARE DOCTOR YOU CAN TRUST YOUR VERY LIFE IN HIS CARE. AND I WOULD TRUST MY CHILDRENS LIVES IN HIS CARE WITHOUT ANY DOUBTS
