I am at Froedert because I am in need of a kidney transplant. Dr. Breshnahan is the transplant team leader. She was very pleasant, professional and knowlegable. I also met with other members of the transplant team and I was impressed with all of them as I was with Dr. Breshnahan.

This is the second year in a row that I had an appointment and the Dr. was 45 minutes to an hour late. This year I had an appointment at 9:00am and was seen by the doctor at about 9:50am. I have a schedule also. It would be nice if they wouldn't be late.

Dr. Bresnahan is outstanding as well as her staff. She is a good listener, looks at my records ahead of time, and iss compassionate. Excellent!!! I greatly appreciated two of her staff members calling me with my test results. I was quite anxious. It was great that I didn't have to wait. Thank you.
