Biography & Education

Biography

Dr. Brandenburg decided to become a physician because he enjoys the combination of human interaction, relationship and the science of medicine. He considers his most important role to be helping people by clarifying issues, pointing out which therapies have beneficial evidence and which don’t. He also attempts to keep the cost of care in mind.

“I think what I enjoy most about being a doctor is knowing people over time and honoring their trust in me,” he says.

Dr. Brandenburg is a board-certified physician with a specialty in internal medicine. He earned his medical degree from Oregon Health & Science University. He completed his internship at Kaiser Foundation Hospital in San Francisco, and his residency at Providence Portland Medical Center.

Raised in Medford, Dr. Brandenburg and his wife now reside in Jacksonville and plan to live the rest of their lives in the community. They have two grown children and enjoy horseback riding, bicycling and playing golf.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.
