Patient Ratings

Excellent surgeon,caring personality, extensive knowledge. He asks about your problem and listens to your answer. He is very adamant about preventing infection. He is very meticulous about his work. I’ve been going to him for many years. He fixed my ankle, shoulder and knee. Great job!! – Margaret

I was a patient of Dr. Brodell’s in 1992 when I was 15 years old. Both knees needed to have ACL replacement. He did the surgery on both knees 6 months apart from each other, and I completed physical therapy. To this day I have had no pain, and am still very active with running, scuba diving, water skiing, and snow skiing. I’m so thankful for his expertise, and being able to be active in my life!

Dr. Brodell is a very knowledgeable dr. and is very courteous and will answer all your questions. I see 7-8 different drs. and Dr. Brodell and his staff are right at the top of my favorite list. – James
