Dr Bronk has been my doctor for 34 years. there is no physician better. he has a phenomenal memory about all of my health issues and takes time to review any question I may have during my visit.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Saw me on day of surgery for wound problem at 11 p.m.!

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Experience was very positive.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Dr. Bronk provided one of the most impressive general surgical consults I have ever experienced. My problem was relatively minor. He was no condescending, he took it seriously, he described the surgical options, and he took care of it the first visit. I have undergone the same procedure at Harvard and Washington University. His execution was by far the best.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Bronk because in addition to having breast cancer I am not in great health. I appreciate Dr. Bronk's intake interview and concern that I will be strong enough to withstand the anesthesia and surgery. In addition Dr. Bronk also expressed a concern and interest in the follow up care while I am healing.

This was my first visit with Dr. Martin Bronk. My medical situation is quite complicated and Dr. Bronk took a very complete medical history. Dr. Bronk's time and concern has given me great confidence that he will make the correct decision (mastectomy or lumpectomy of the right breast. I also am confident that Dr. Bronk will make sure that when I am a patient at Stanford Hospital will look after me.
