Ohio native Heather Brooks is a lifelong learner and loves applying her knowledge to help patients. She believes in shared decision making and customizing care for each patient's unique set of circumstances and needs. Dr. Brooks was inspired to become a physician after being by her grandfather's side during his illness.

“I admired the care my grandpa received. Despite being unable to cure him, his physician improved his quality of life and offered emotional support to my family."

Dr. Brooks has a clinical interest in thyroid disorders, pituitary disorders and Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, including insulin pumps and glucose monitors.

When not serving patients, Dr. Brooks recharges with travel, family time and playing board and card games.

wasnt the right doctor for me


1/28/2020

The discussion was mostly one-sided with the physician stating her reasons for certain treatment which I don't agree with. She stated that she lets labwork dictate treatment more so than patient-reported symptoms.

Dr Brooks is a valuable and appreciated resource to us.

Dr Brooks was wonderful! She looked at my records before meeting with me. She explained everything to me, even showed me pictures of mythyroid and explained the issues. She asked lots of questions so she could know my whole body health condition and family health history. I was very pleased with her.
