SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr. Bronk was highly recommended by my family practice physician, Chia-yi Selena Hung.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr Bronk is a is a sterling example of what a caring surgeon should be.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr Bronk is excellent. Friendly, completely consultative in explaining possible alternatives within the overall surgical procedure

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr. Bronk has a wonderful bedside manner. I had just received a diagnosis of cancer and he explained things in a warm and compassionate manner. I left feeling so much better about my diagnosis.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

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

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.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Experience was very positive.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Dr. Bronk is a gem!

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Excellent.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

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.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Dr. Bronk is an outstanding physician!

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Dr. Bronk is fabulous. He tries very hard to solve my complex medical problems. He offered ideas that no one else did. I am explaining them no, though he is a surgeon, he did not think surgery was the answer for my issues.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

I can't imagine a doctor being able to make his patient more comfortable during the appointment.

Dr. Bronk is an exemplary physician. He is kind, wise and creates an atmosphere for the patient to trust and feel always confident in his care.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

There needs to be an 'Excellent' category for Dr. Martin Bronk!!! Seriously, he is a gifted doctor. I used MyHealth to message a question to his office after my first visit. I got a very quick response from the office saying that Dr. Bronk was out of the office that day but they'd be sure to get my message to him. I received a response from Dr. Bronk at 10 PM ON A DAY HE WASN'T EVEN IN HIS OFFICE! That's remarkable and so appreciated. I also received a call from his office first thing the following morning so that they could get me in right away. That shows incredibly good communication between and among Dr. Bronk his office staff.
