The wait time was kind of long but the receptionist was very friendly and hospitable. Dr. Brooks really took the time to review my condition and listen to what I had to say. He asked me questions regarding my condition and was willing to go the extra mile with running the appropriate tests to find the source of the problem. Dr. Brooks was also very kind, friendly, and humorous. He was nice to be around. The nurse who saw me before Dr. Brooks went over my condition was also very friendly.

He was very thorough and asked a lot of good, probing questions. He took his time listening to my ailments and has a good approach to hopefully find out exactly what it is so it can be treated.

Good, knowledgable doctor who was pleasant and had a sense of humor. He lacked be standard bedside manners though, for example, he greeted me with a simple "hi" when he came in and didn't introduce himself. Similarly when we were done he simply left without a clear indication that we were finished and any goodbye. Also after asking me questions he suddenly started examining me without telling me first he was about to touch me or explain what he was going to do. Other than the bedside manners, he was in fact pleasant and had a good sense of humor and made some enjoyable small talk. He seems very knowledgable and after checking me up told me what he found and was very accurate about things I didn't tell him about.

He is very experienced, explains reasoning and processes very well, and spent quite a bit of time with me (20-25 min).
