Best General Medical Practitioner: Donald Brandon, MD
Like Dr. Marcus Welby, the kindly family doctor from the ’70s TV show, Donald Brandon, MD believes in personalized medical care. At his practice in Rancho Santa Fe, he limits the number of patients in order to provide optimal care, and is not tied to insurance contracts. Brandon believes doctors, not insurance companies, should decide what is best for patients. Board certified in internal medicine, and a graduate of USC’s Keck School of Medicine, Brandon has been practicing for more than 20 years. (858.756.4749, www.altormedicus.com)
