It’s been over a year since being under the Brennan’s care and my husband and I still talk about how lucky we were to have had them. I unfortunately had a miscarriage with my first pregnancy and the empathy and compassion they had for us helped us through a difficult time. With my second pregnancy, they took excellent care of us and gave us the greatest gift of all time, our daughter. If you are looking for a knowledgeable and thoughtful doctor, I’d recommend Dr. Brennan and Jayce to anyone.
I switched to Dr. Brennan and I could not have been happier! He has a great bedside manner I got plenty of photos of my baby and he was on call for whenever I needed to have a question answered or had a concern. He also saw me last minute when I had concerns in my third trimester. I also really appreciate the COVID-19 precautions that him and his wife took in their office to soothe my anxiety. Would definitely go see Dr. Brennan again if I still lived in Brooklyn and was having another baby.
I moved to Dr Brennan in my 4th month of pregnancy as I wasn't happy with my previous OBGYN. We felt welcomed and looked after as soon as I'd had my first appointment and it continued throughout my pregnancy until he delivered my gorgeous baby boy. Him and his wife Jais take expert care of you but do it with love and honesty. Wouldn't have wanted to go through the process with anyone else. Thank you both of you.
Went nice & smooth . everyone was so helping
This is a review that was due more than a year ago. I had my first child with Dr Brennan. He and Jayce were incredible during the time I was pregnant. They always made you come in as soon as possible if you had a doubt. He was always available on the phone at any time of the day. They did all the tests that was needed. I ended up asking for a c-section because I had a 30 hour labour and things were not going well, I was tiered and had no energy to continue because of some complications I had...he accepted to do it immediately but he NEVER pushed me and he did an incredible job! I always hear C-section is hard, it will hurt, it takes time to recover, for me I NEVER had pain! I was on my feet the next day! I was being careful not lifting heavy items but it was an unbelievably easy recovery. I miss them both so much! I might move from New York and we want another kid, the only thing making me not want to leave is that I want him to deliver the next baby too.
I love working with Dr.Brennan and his wife Jayce, I'm 33 weeks and my husband and I feel so comfortable and confident in their care. I feel very lucky to have found them. (Update delivery was wonderful, very easy and I was very well taken care of) (as of 2018)Update 2020: I just had my second child with Dr. Brennan and felt very fortunate to be under his care during such crazy times as COVID-19. Dr. Brennan and Jayce are handling patients during COVID-19 with such care and grace, keeping everyone safe and sane. My favorite thing about Dr. Brennan is that he will always be the one to deliver your baby (not like a standard OBGYN practice) and it always works out, even though I have extremely fast labors Dr.Brennan always knows when to rush to the hospital to get there just in time (e.g. last time his rushed from a black tie event and delivered by baby in a tux).Delivering at Lenox Hill with Dr. Brennan was great, the experience with the Lenox Hill nurses was amazing, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a doctor that will remain calm and be there for you when you need him!
Dr. Brennan is a fantastic doctor. He’s knowledgeable and spends the time to talk with you about your health. I’ve always felt that all of my questions were answered thoroughly and without condescension. Dr. Brennan even gave his cell number for emergencies, and he answered every time that I called. During my pregnancy, Dr. Brennan did perform an ultrasound at every visit (which I appreciated and were all covered by insurance) and was entirely forthcoming with what was going to be done at each visit. Dr. Brennan kept me calm and laughing right up to my delivery, which went very smoothly.
Dr. Brennan is an amazing doctor. He truly listens and puts you at ease with his skill and knowledge. I'm so grateful to have had him as my OB during my two pregnancies. His wife Jace is another wonderful asset to the practice. Their team approach and wonderful bed side manner has made my pregnancy and deliveries very easy.

Phenomenal clinic - immaculate, outstanding patient care, quirky and kind bedside manner, and connected to the best hospital in NYC. I cannot recommend the practice highly enough. Dr Brennan and his partner Jais are extremely patient focused, and talked me through every decision point in detail. They were patient, kind, and I actually enjoyed childbirth, amid a pandemic and with only one support person, BECAUSE Dr Brennan was there and I trusted him implicitly. Thank you!
Short version: Phenomenal clinic. I gave birth 8 weeks ago, right when Covid-19 was squeezing NY by the throat. It was a natural birth, my baby is healthy, and my body is basically back to normal - all things made possible by the expert care and support of Dr Brennan and his partner Jais. The cliff notes on this clinic are that it is exceptional - immaculate, outstanding patient care, quirky and kind bedside manners all round, and connected to the best hospital in NYC. I cannot recommend the practice highly enough. Long version: I was recommended to Dr Brennan by my boss (an experienced attorney who doesn't suffer fools), after I lamented the prevalence of arrogant, impersonal doctors. "You will love the Brennans," my boss said. "They are eccentric, experienced, won't push an agenda, they'll give you all the time in the world, and will make you feel like family." She was right on all counts. The Brennans invest seriously in their patients. Throughout my pregnancy, they discussed each decision point in depth, teasing out the best path forward. Perhaps because I'm a lawyer, I saw the fact that they would discuss pros and cons in front of me as a sign of true professionalism - they weren't arrogant enough to think there was one right path, and they weren't afraid to test one another's views to make sure we got it right. No question was stupid, and even if my appointment was initially 15 minutes long, they would keep answering my questions for an hour if needed. Dr Brennan is permanently on call for his patients, and I contacted him regularly with concerns that usually amounted to nothing but which he treated with the utmost seriousness. Yes, the flipside of this kind of personal care is that appointments sometimes start late, but I would rather wait for an appointment and have this level of attention than efficiently get bad service. (And to be fair, people like me regularly rock up 45 minutes late and throw their whole schedule out of whack...).Another important plus is that Dr Brennan is the only doctor. In so many practices you never see the same doctor more than twice, so when you are sick they don't have a point of comparison. (Nothing like being told you're fine when you feel like death). This meant that when I showed up at Dr Brennan's office late at night in serious pain from my contractions, he could trust right away that I wasn't playing around and needed pain relief stat. He could also read me like a book during labour - eg he suggested I use a mirror because I'm goal-orientated (and yes, it was a huge motivator!), and he knew when he could push me to the next level during delivery and when I truly needed a break from the pain. I'll always be grateful to Dr Brennan for staying so in tune with me. I trusted him, and if he'd said I needed a C-section I would have gone with that whether I'd wanted to or not - childbirth is full of risks and curveballs, and that's why we have experts like him to give us their best bet.Dr Brennan's connection to Lenox Hill Hospital is also a major drawcard. The staff are extremely supportive and professional, and that was so important since I was only allowed one support person (because of corona). A few days after my birth I had to go to the ER at a Brooklyn hospital on a non-birth related matter, and the staff were horrific - cold, unprofessional, no PPE, and the only way I got through that was because Dr Brennan coordinated with the ER doctors (and calmed me down!). Post-partem, the Brennans have also been incredible. They have seen me by Zoom, and started me on treatment on magnetic chair that gives a bajillian pelvic floor exercises in a short amount of time - well worth it!I was horrified to read a review that Dr Brennan is a 'yeller' and Jais tries to cover up - what bizarre accusations. Nothing could be further from the truth. Dr Brennan is calm, kind, and nothing is too difficult. Jais is also a delight - hilarious and incredibly supportive. They are cautious but not overzealous with testing, and they never pressured me - eg I decided not to get the amnio or the late term scans, and there was never any pressure to do the contrary. I was bemused by the reviewer who questioned the regular internal and external ultrasounds - how do you think Dr Brennan is supposed to see what's going on? Holistic fortune-telling? X-ray vision? Psychic ability? (Side note: I loved these ultrasounds - hearing my baby's heart beat each week was the most incredible part of pregnancy. Why would anyone not want that??) Thank you, Dr Brennan and Jais, for being with me on this remarkable journey. If I have another baby I want you by my side again every step of the way!
Dr Brennan and his wife Jace, who runs the office and nursing side of the operation, have created the most wonderful family practice I could imagine anywhere, let alone a cut and thrust city like NYC. My husband and I went to Dr Brennan's as first time parents experiencing our first pregnancy. This practice will suit anyone looking for warm, conscientious and values-driven medical care.I was seen every time by Jace, who takes vitals and gives you all the time you need to ask questions and give reassurance. Then Dr Brennan would come in to do an ultrasound and address any technical medical issues. They both have an amazing bedside manner. I have honestly never felt more cared for in any medical situation - they took time to get to know us personally and build a genuine relationship with us. I can't tell you how much that meant to me when I was due to give birth at the apex of the Covid-19 pandemic when there was talk of not allowing any support partners into the hospital. Although that policy was never introduced at Lenox Hill, the hospital Dr Brennan is associated with, knowing that he would be there to deliver my baby was exceptionally reassuring. I don't know of anywhere else where you are guaranteed to always see one doctor for prenatal visits as well as the birth. As well as the personal care you get from the Brennans, the front desk staff are also worth a shoutout for being responsive, friendly and capable - sadly this can't often be said for other medical offices I've been to. When I was researching OBGYNs at the beginning of this baby journey I remember reading a review by someone who said they were sad to not be able to go back regularly to Dr Brennan's practice after they were finished with their postpartum period. I thought at the time that was an exaggeration, but that's also how I feel now my baby is one month old. I am going to miss them!
After an incredibly impersonal experience at a downtown Manhattan obgyn practice, I was thrilled to have found Dr. Brennan, who delivered my first (healthy!) child at Lennox Hill just over a month ago. He and his wife Jais took incredible care of me throughout my first pregnancy, during which they went above and beyond by sharing their time, availability, expertise, and warmth. Although some worry about going to a single-doctor practice, both Dr. Brennan and Jais shared their cell phone numbers at my first appointment and encouraged us to contact them at any hour. On just one occasion, another patient's delivery coincided with my appointment. Knowing that I was anxious to hear my baby's heartbeat, Jais called me when Dr. Brennan left the hospital at 8pm and invited me to come in to see him for the scan.When I went into labor at home, Dr. Brennan was already at the hospital but just as available as ever, calling me every hour to check in. While I was terrified I'd need a c-section, Dr. Brennan reassured me (again and again and again) that we'd make that decision together when the time came, and followed through: I had exactly the birth I wanted.I also want to give Dr. Brennan's support team a big shout out: Unlike literally every other doctor's office in Manhattan, his receptionists are kind and patient and friendly--an especially good thing if you happen to be super hormonal!If you want the kind of medical team that won't let you leave until your last question is answered; takes extra ultrasound photos for your fridge; works around your work schedule; and treats you more like family than a number, this practice is for you.
Unlike most reviews touching on the brunch line wait, tasty lasagne, or a rude server I'm sharing an account of the doctor responsible for the birth of my child. I'm not a Yelp user but because choosing an ob is such a critical decision, I share my experience:My wife and I explored different ob-gyn options before deciding on Dr. Brennan. We were turned off by the impersonal nature of most of the practices in NYC. Dr. Brennan serves as the contrast to our initial experiences. Not only is he an exceptional physician, he has unmatched patience and compassion. I have always held doctors to a very high bar. Over the course of multiple visits, Dr. Brennan not only met these expectations but he surpassed them. He has an impressive understanding of obstetrics -- on a number of occasions he delved into more technical, complex explanations after sharing a very approachable summary.On a personal level it's challenging to fathom how anyone, let alone a doctor, is open to calls at all hours of the day/night, seven days a week. It's almost weird how willing Dr. Brennan is to receive calls from patients at all times, no questions asked. I'm reluctant to even share this willingness lest someone take advantage of his kindness. If he owns a watch, it doesn't work, or at least he doesn't care about it. He spent hours and hours attending to every question and concern (we had plenty!) throughout the course of our pregnancy on our timetable, not his. In conclusion, my wife gave birth to a beautiful, healthy son last month. In Dr. Brennan's hands we were confident there would be no other outcome.
Dr. Brennan and his staff are wonderful! I can not recommend them enough. Throughout my surprise twin pregnancy I was reassured and guided at every turn. With several scares and all the first time mom worries, Dr. Brennan remained patient and provided me with unwavering support and ample time to ask questions. After giving birth Dr. Brennan checked on me multiple times while I was in the hospital, as well as my newborns in the NICU. He was and continues to be so caring for me and my family. It is refreshing and wonderful to see a physician truly care about the wellbeing of the families they are caring for, often going above and beyond to ensure they are truly cared for.
I wish someone would have saved me! Worst OB, an absolute nightmare. Dr Brennan is overworked, routinely has no idea who his patients are, he is hasty with his decision making, short tempered if you question him and ask for explanations - his wife Jayse will help smooth things over and answer your questions while he leaves the room or sits there and stirs. But she has no medical credentials and is really just a buffer for her husband every time he misspeaks or doesn’t want to deal. He does a lot of “unnecessary” things that my OB during my second pregnancy did not do - he was very invasive. It is very difficult for me to go into detail because it’s so personal, but he was rushed and created an extremely stressful labor and delivery process. I did not feel safe in his “care” and he put my baby’s life at risk. I will absolutely avoid this Dr every last day of my life! He should have retired decades ago!
I wanted to take this time to finally thank Dr. Brennan for the wonderful care I received during my pregnancy. My beautiful twin girls are now six years old and I couldn’t have done it without the help of Dr. Brennan and his wife Jais who works along side of him. I was a high risk patient and also very scared of child birth but after meeting Dr. Brennan I knew I’d be in good hands.... and I was! From the start of my pregnancy up until the very end DR Brennan was always there for me day and night whenever I need to ask the most ridiculous question. He delivers at Lenox Hill Hospital is truly an amazing place with an great staff. Jais was such a great source of support throughout my pregnancy. There aren’t many providers like this around or any at all for that matter that can provide such personal service on a personal level. Dr. Brennan does not treat his practice like a business and makes you feel very welcomed and SAFE. I’ve had some Bad experiences with gynecologists in the past so even if you are not expecting Dr Brennan is a great GYN. Thanks again!
I found Dr Brennan based on google and yelp reviews and after one meeting with him and his wife Jais, my husband and I felt very comfortable and confident that we would be in very good hands for my first pregnancy, despite always thinking I would prefer a female OBGYN. Dr Brennan and Jais go over and above to make sure all our questions are answered and that we were welcome to call on his cell if ever we had any questions, day or night.I had a very fast and uncomplicated delivery of our beautiful baby girl and thanks to Dr Brennan, I had no tearing and a fast recovery.The only slight criticism we have is that we found he obviously has so many patients that he didn't really remember us at each visit so we had to remind him of where I was in the pregnancy/what procedures we'd done already (any blood drawings and tests etc). He does bicker a little with his wife Jais in front of patients too but this was more funny than something that really bothered us. So the two criticisms really are minor things and ultimately we were so impressed by his care, attentiveness and wealth of knowledge. Jais is also so sweet, kind, patient and personable. They truly make a great team.I really liked having the same doctor throughout the whole process too, unlike other OBGYN offices which rotate doctors so you don't know who will deliver you when you go into labour. He also lets you come to his Brooklyn office at any time of the day or night to be examined when you think you're in labour so that he can determine whether or not you need to go to the hospital yet - which saves you an immediate trip all the way to the upper east side if you live in Brooklyn, and are not dilated enough yet.Overall I highly recommend Dr Brennan, and have felt so very lucky to have found him. If my husband and I stay in NY and have future children, we would 100% want Dr Brennan to deliver them too!
Wow I’m glad to see that my wife and I weren’t the only ones feeling grossed out by this doctor and his wife. For the longest time we thought we were the only ones that had such a negative experience with Dr. Brennan, his wife and their office. I showed my wife the most recent reviews and she felt sorry that others had a bad experience but felt some relief that she wasn’t the only one feeling like this for so long.Dr Brennan was my wife’s OB when she was pregnant but after a few red flags we decided to switch doctors late in the game. We were so nervous about switching doctors in her third trimester but we just did not feel comfortable with this doctor’s demeanor, especially when getting close to the due date. Dr Brennan and his wife got into spats between each other right in front of us. That was enough to make us uncomfortable. The front desk was always disorganized and when it came to moving my wife’s records to another office, it was like pulling teeth. Also, felt like the receptionist was miserable. It’s like she couldn’t make appointments or do anything without Dr. Brennan's wife’s approval. Which is probably why getting our records was such an ordeal. The biggest red flag was when my wife questioned Dr. Brennan about all the transvaginal ultrasounds and the doctor's wife jumped up and went into a whole story as to why they do all these tests. My wife tried to explain that she didn’t feel comfort with all these test and Dr. Brennan grew very angry. To our understanding, we’re allowed to refuse unnecessary tests and so that was the final straw. We didn’t feel we needed all those test in the last trimester. The whole experience gave my wife and I a lot of anxiety before, during, and after every appointment. It was always like what story are they going to give us today as to why they need to do this test and that test. Overall I do not recommend this doctor as I see the stress it gave my wife during her pregnancy. I also felt that after doing research about common prenatal care many of the tests were invasive and unnecessary for my wife who was having a healthy pregnancy. I'm glad we decided to leave Dr. Brennan because seeing the difference in OBs justified our decision.
