Looking forward to solving more of my issues with Dr. Brogan. I felt hope that my pain could be lessened for the first time in months.

July 23, 2016

Dr. Carver, Lynn (PT), and Dr. Brogan were all very kind.

January 27, 2016

Dr Brogan and Dr Tanase were fantastic! They made me feel secure and comfortable while having a procedure that I was really nervous about. They explained everything and made me feel confident with what was happening around me. Monica was wonderful as my nurse. I was made to feel comfortable and safe.

January 18, 2016

Care provider was very busy thus time was cut short.

December 10, 2015

Excellent care

October 26, 2015

Dr. Brogan was fantastic

July 24, 2015

I like Doc Brogan but did not care for the doctor that was working with him. I did not see his id on him at all which made me a little nervous. Had no sense of humor and when he was checking my reflexes even though I stated it was hurting he still kept trying to get a reflex and it was clear he wasn't getting one. Do not want to see him again

June 07, 2014

Dr. Brogan is fantastic! He will be missed!

March 25, 2014

Best, smartest, kindest doctors in the world! Dr. Akerly! Dr. Poppe! Dr. Brogan! When we need appointment, they work us in, or call us, or get us into acute care. They listen, understand, and do everything they can for us.

February 17, 2014

Both Dr. Brogan and his fellow spent a significant amount of time with me discussing my long-term treatment. They were great.

December 16, 2013

What you'd expect when the procedure ends in a trip to the ER, right?

September 30, 2013

Both Dr. Brogan and his Fellow were great.

June 09, 2013

I put FAIR on Question 2 all because he wasn't sure what was wrong with me. Him and his team of doctors are trying to figure that out and is doing what he can to find out what the problem is. It wasn't that he wouldn't tell me. He didn't know at this time..........Referred me to someone who can give him answers.

May 30, 2013

My care provider was Dr. Shane Brogan. Although he spent very little time for me, there was another Doctor who proceeded him, who always did a through assessment to Dr. Brogan. Therefore there was no need for Dr. Brogan to spend much time. I have already referred the clinic to others. Sadly, most of them seem to prefer staying on their medications without trying to find alternatives.

April 03, 2013

The fellow, Dr Winter & Dr Brogan were both excellent!

March 18, 2013

I love Dr. Brogan and his team! I do not know of any other doctor who includes me, as the patient, in every decision. Nothing is done without me fully on board. My treatment plan is in my hands, with their guidance. I can ask questions, say no to a procedure, whatever it is with no worries. My best interest is all that matters to him and his team. Dr. Brogan is also able to tell me things I need to hear, might not want to hear, but need to. He is able to do this in a caring matter, but gets his point across to me. I am more than happy to drive the hour one way to come and see him. I would not want anyone else taking care of me.

March 12, 2013

Long waiting times without talking to anyone

February 24, 2013

Wait time is the only problem

February 05, 2013

Dr. Shane Brogan is one of the most kind and considerate 'pain' Docs I have ever met. He definitely knows his area, and his willingness to work with me has been incredible. Thanks!

November 12, 2012

only problem was wait time.

September 17, 2012

my problem is difficult to treat without over-medication....I know it's a concern for the doctor!

September 05, 2012

Dr. Brogan is a great doctor. He knows his stuff, and he is very personable as well, which is commendable since he is almost always dealing with people in pain.

June 18, 2012

I have received outstanding care by my Doctors. Thank you for giving me a chance to live a more normal life.

May 10, 2012

Dr. Shane Brogan has been very helpful in my husbands medical problem. Trying all that he can to relieve his pain. His associates are also very informative and helpful. We would certainly recommend him to others. Dr. Brogan is always dressed very neatly and is very courteous and caring. His compassion is evident in working with those in pain.

February 04, 2012
