9/19/2020

Dr. Brooks was very patience and informative. she asked questions and listened to my concerns and provided helpful and honest feedback. I went to her for a second opinion concerning my Thyroid treatment and left feeling much more informed and confident about the procedure that would follow. I appreciated that she followed up with "do you have any other question?" each time she finished answering my question. She even walked me out when we finished, I plan on seeing her again as my specialist!


8/20/2020

Took the time to explain everything and how your body work etc.


8/19/2020

Dr. Brooks even thought about a concern I had way after my appointment and emailed me her suggestion. That is an amazing doctor that I'm on her mind way after the visit.


6/27/2020

She was attentive, flexible, willing to investigate and consider: 1. the successes of past treatments for these long standing conditions, 2. treatments other than the "text book" treatments 3. information and research that was new to her.


6/25/2020

Dr. Brooks went over all of the lab results, blood and urine, explained the results and how they impacted my concerns. Really good explanations in terms I could understand. She explained the results of my bone density and chest x-ray, not just the blanket response that they all looked " OK". I learned alot.


3/19/2020

OK.


3/13/2020

Dr. Brooks listened to me, explained things thoroughly and was kind.


3/11/2020

*Dr. Brooks did a great job of explaining and giving options for treatment.


3/10/2020

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.
