MICHAEL BROSMAN, MD.
In this day and age, personalized care has in many respects become obsolete. However, Norman Rockwell’s image of a doctor spending time with his patients is precisely what you will find with Dr Michael Brosman MD. To be a patient of Dr Brosman is to have the personalized care we all deserve. “I listen to my patients, and ensure their questions and concerns are addressed, rather than rushing them out the door with a pamphlet stuck in their pocket,” says Dr Brosman. This doctor feels that one of the most crucial aspects of medical care is having a human connection between doctor and patient. “I believe in treating my patient with the same compassion and care as I would expect for my own family.” He applies this philosophy to every aspect of the practice.
Dr Brosman, a native of Santa Monica, CA, and his wife Victoria, from Toronto Canada, have chosen to raise their four young children in Wilmington. “We are ever amazed at how warm, kind and caring the city has been to our family,” says Victoria.
Dr Brosman graduated Magna Cum Laude from Brown University, and then attended The Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California. He then trained in Ophthalmology at Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia.
He provides a wide range of services to include routine eye exams, contact lens fitting, care for dry eyes, allergies and both medical and laser treatment for glaucoma. He also performs no needle, no stitch cataract surgery. He uses the most advanced premium lens implants with cataract surgery to either reduce or eliminate the need for glasses.
For him helping and connecting with people is the reason he chose a career in medicine. “I strive to be more than just an eye doctor, but rather, my focus is the total health and well being of my patients.”
