"My office visit was great but during my hospitalization for surgery, my opinion changed. In the hospital he did not listen, he did not read my history and he made assumptions."
  • April 13, 2023
"Dr. didn't seem to care at all. Demanded that I get another CT scan even though I brought the radiology report of my CT scan confirming my hernia diagnosis. Then waited 3 weeks to review it and have someone call me with his highness' decision. Cold and holier-than-thou attitude. I won't be back to WK."

"Came to the ER and was diagnosed as needing my gall bladder removed. I am not sure how Dr. Brakta was assigned to me, but I could not have made a better choice. Explained what was going on and what he was going to do. Surgery went well. Office visit was great. Staff was very easy to work with. Excellent care."

"This was a preliminary visit to discuss my medical issue. It is VERY important and essential that I connect with my Dr. Dr Brakta was very easy to talk to, very easy to open up to. We are just starting this medical journey but already I’m comfortable with his office staff and very willing to continue with him as my surgeon if it comes to that. Dr Brakta was referred to my brother for correction of an umbilical hernia. My brother has slight dementia and Dr Brakta was very inclusive with both my brother and myself in the visit and exam. The surgery was successful and we couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. "

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
