Brenda Robinson

"I am a very active and informed patient,” says Brenda. “I write down my questions. I take notes. I do my homework. So I was surprised when Dr. Sharan pointed out symptoms that I hadn’t even thought to mention.” It turned out that Brenda needed surgery, and in her case, robotic surgery was the best option. When she arrived at HCA Florida Sarasota Hospital, Brenda was pleased to find the same type of genuine compassion that she had experienced in Dr. Sharan’s office.

David Fiederer

When David started having severe pain in his leg, he rushed to the ER at HCA Florida Sarasota Doctors Hospital. Once he entered the ER, the staff asked him about his pain level, and he was treated right away. The personal approach made David and his wife feel at ease and confident with the care.
