Fun Facts

The most interesting place Brandy has visited is Ireland, which was one of the best trips she has experienced. “Driving on the opposite side of the road was both scary and exhilarating!”

Not everyone knows this about Brandy, but she is pretty good at woodworking.

Brandy’s guilty pleasure is chocolate. “Isn’t that everyone’s?”

​I want my patients to know I truly care about their well-being. I try to give my patients the same care and even better than what I would expect if I were the patient.
