Ratings for Dr. Mark L. Brandon
Dr Brandon failed to diagnose my torn labrum, i will be receiving surgery now from another doctor after the new doctor DIAGNOSED THIS TORN MUSCLE AFTER ONE VISIT. the staff is miserable and it makes sitting in the waiting room for hours even more of a miserable experience. after 30 seconds of seeing the doctor and telling him about pain but receiving no help other than "this is the pain w/ the injury, this pain will subside" i had to drop him as a doctor. I had visited 5 times, and the doctor didn't even put his hands on me (broken collarbone and shoulder pain) more than twice. Wasted 1.5 years on my life with unnecessary pain and a shortened shoulder. The new doctor i saw says that 9999/10000 times, my broken collarbone would have received surgery where Dr Brandon let it heal on its own. I was recommended to him but will RECOMMEND AGAINST HIM to others going forward.
Unfortunately everyone at the front desk was very unprofessional, rude, and unhelpful. The doctors may be good but the women who speak to you at the front desk regarding appointments and insurance are miserable and completely unpersonable, have no manners to greet anyone, and are busy texting and being rude.
Horrible wait times- they seem to over book appointments all the time. Staff seems standoff-ish esp. Andrea- don't try to make everyone feel as miserable as you look, you should retire. I've waited hours every time I go, last time was almost 3 hours. Time with the Dr.- 5-10min, yup I'm not kidding. Avoid this place. Staff attitude + wait time = feels like you got another injury.
Dr Brandon is great, I never questioned anything he had told me and put my full trust in him from the time I met him. Breaking my femur was horrible but I feel confident about everything he had done to put me on the road to recovery. After a month from the surgery I have seen so much improvement in myself. He really knows his practice and is a nice person who works very hard at his profession. I will always recommend him and I'm sure many others feel the same way.
Dr Brandon is a highly qualified surgeon right here on Staten Island.I did extensive research on the Dr and the ACl surgery he was going to perform on my son. He answered all my questions and his responses were consistent with what I had read.We are very happy with Dr Brandon and highly recommend him.
Dr Brandon preformed surgery 12/23/09 on my trimalleolar ankle fracture basically shattered the ankle and nerves tendons and ligaments were badly damaged, he explained to be in the hospital and than be surgery what he would do. He took almost 5 hrs to rebuild the ankle 3 steel plates and 3 screws , 55 wks later Im about 75% and getting stronger thanks to the Doctor's excellent work, and he really understands Ortho medicine. I highly recommend Dr Brandon.
