Gyan Brard, M.D., F.A.C.E.

Doctor Brard was born in Seattle, Washington and spent most of his youth in California. He has been in private practice in Mesa since September 1997. While in practice, he has emphasized learning about insulin pumps. He prefers to download insulin pumps as part of routine follow-up on patients who have them. He started working with electronic medical records in 2000 and developed his own database application which has since been replaced by the commercial product the office currently uses.
If you asked why he became a doctor, he would tell you that he became a doctor to make patients’ lives better and will do just that if he possibly can. For diabetic patients that might mean helping them take control of their lives, prescribing new medication or technology, or just being a stable part of an overall regimen of self-care. For patients with thyroid and other hormonal conditions it might mean understanding complicated test results or unusual conditions. “The numerous demands of the current healthcare environment can depersonalize the practice of medicine. I try to find some way to connect with each patient on a personal level.”
