I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Dr. Brecher. He was my doctor for 30 years. We always talked about our love if music, and folk music. He helped me through some of the most difficult time's of my life. He be was an outstanding doctor, and even better human being. My deepest condolences to the entire Brecher family 🙏

I worked with Dr. Brecher for 25 years at Warminster Hospital and was shocked to recently learn of his passing. His loss to medicine and to his family and the multitude of patients he cared about cannot be overstated. His presence in the hospital represented the very best, not only of medical practice, but of human behavior as well. He was an example to all of us on how to care for and demonstrate that caring to those we were privileged to work with. My sincerest expression of sympathy goes out to his execptional family who can take pride that their husband and father contributed to the building of the world.

Mrs. Brecher,
I am so saddened to hear of Jeff’s passing. He was a mentor while I was in residency, & then colleague to me on the inpatient side. He was a kind, patient, & caring physician and I always knew I could count on him for help.
He also smiled from ear to ear, which I’ll never forget, when talking about his family.
I offer my prayers for you & your family. I will truly miss my friend.

Mrs. Brecher & Family

Dr. Brecher was my husband’s, son’s, and my family physician for the past 38 years. He was always a kind and compassionate man. He was looking forward to his retirement to spend time with his family, traveling, and listening to his music. He even spoke of DJing for a local radio station. He will be missed by all.

May his name be a blessed memory.

My late wife and I met Jeff and Adelyn when we moved across the hall from them. What wonderful neighbors. We used to enjoy Jeff’s description of apartment life as “living the dream”. He was always upbeat and and just a really good guy. My heart goes out to Adelyn.
