Originally from Long Island, NY, Dr. Brennan had a wonderful upbringing on Long Island and Fire Island in the summers, Grateful for parents sacrifices. I was grateful to have 3 wonderful brothers and a sister all who are inspiring and supportive. I always asked questions and wanted to know more. I was a very curious person and always wanted to learn more. I took a more untraditional path towards Medicine which began at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York where I was a Management Information Systems Major and graduated with a B.S. During my 4 years at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute I traveled and studied abroad in Australia and Indonesia. I was also a member of the Varsity Men’s Lacrosse Team for all 4 years.
I felt I really wasn’t doing the work I wanted to do every day. Moreover, I was passionate about health, wellbeing and fitness. I enjoyed working with and helping people and I knew Medicine was where my heart was. So, I went to Medical School and now practice Internal Medicine and Addiction Medicine. I have taken advantage of my education and further exploited that knowledge to learn more about health information technology, software development and web development. I enjoy inspiring others to take on challenges and reap the rewards of success.
I now spend a good portion of my time outside of the hospital brainstorming ideas and developing software and designing websites. I am passionate about life and all the opportunities it has to offer. Never take anything for granted and be grateful you have another day to further your knowledge and make a contributing impact on society.
