“David Brand, PA-C, took his time to listen to my reason for making an appointment about my foot. He explained the examination as he went through the analysis. He was patient with my questions and thorough in his explanation. I did not feel hurried and he was gentle in administering the shots I received. Most of all he was patient and kind.” —JLD
