Page Six has a statement from Dr. Brandt’s publicist, Jacquie Tractenberg, that reads, “He passed away this morning. He was suffering from an illness. Everyone who knows him is devastated.” She added, “I worked with him for over 20 years and he was an amazing man; not only was he a brilliant doctor, but he was the kindest human being.”

We will remember his sweet and friendly nature, and our Patricia Reynoso of Glam Belleza Latina says she’ll specifically miss watching him sing in Spanish with his patients.
