Dr. Breda did a very thorough exam and studied my previous records carefully. He took time to answer all my questions and to explain everything very well. He seemed unhurried and very thoughtful and I very much appreciated his care.

dr Breda was top notch. I feel very comfortable with him performing my hernia surgery when the time comes. he spent 1 full hour with me. I appreciated that and the comfort it brings. I have already informed others of his excellent care.

Couldn't get an answer as to whether surgery would be helpful or not. He said it wasn't necessary, but MIGHT help, MIGHT not. He could do it if I WANTED it??? Who wants surgery? Wouldn't give a yes or no answer as to whether it's a good idea or not, so what's the point? It cost me $40 to be my own doctor. Now I know even less than I did about my gallbladder issues. Going for a second opinion elsewhere. Can tell you, if it is determined that it should come out, I won't be asking this guy to do my surgery.

I was referred to Dr. Breda by my GP, Dr. Urbach. Everything went smoothly as it should. Dr. Breda ordered an ultrasound, which was done at Good Samaritan Hospital. My experience there was also good.

I needed to find out more about the surgery that I am going to have in a few weeks and it was like he had no bed side manner. To me he acted as if he was better than me and kind of talked down to me. I was trying to be in a better mood but he never smiled and it made me feel uneasy.

Everyone with whom I had contact was very accommodating, helpful, kind and professional, from the nurses and technicians to my specialist, Dr. Breda. Everyone was very kind and I would like to thank each and every one of them. They all made a possibly unpleasant experience into a surprisingly pleasant experience. Thank you all!
