I've been going to Dr. Brooks for about eight years. I've seen many dermatologists throughout my life, but he is by far the best. I've been struggling with acne since I was 13 and he was the first Dr. to come up with a treatment plan that worked. He also takes time with his patients, is willing to answer questions, is patient and personable and is easy to get into.

My visit was thorough and DR. Brooks took time to read my file to know what worked and what didn't before prescribing medication. Also, for the first time, I had to wait about 15 minutes and the staff as well as the doctor acknowledged that he was behind and apologized.

Dr. Brooks is a great doctor! He is very efficient - once he gets in the room. This was my 2nd appointment with him and he answered all of my questions very clearly. I would recommend allocating extra time for your visit in your calendar, especially if you have a job to rush back to. My appointment was at 9 am and he didn't enter the room until 9:30 am. I understand if this happens occasionally. He didn't acknowledge the delay, which makes me think maybe he didn't know what time my appointment time was at. Because he is a great doctor, I won't hold this against him. I bring this up as constructive feedback - hopefully the wait time is better next time!

Dr Brooks listens and cares about his patients. He is focused and pragmatic which is very helpful and constructive. The unusually long wait time for this appointment is not the norm and was out of their control because another patient had arrived late and that disturbed the whole schedule. From start to finish the staff kept me informed and apologized for the wait time. This is life and it happens, I was happy to have a cup of tea and wait my turn.

It is always a pleasure to have an appointment with Dr. Brooks. He really listens and addresses your concerns. He seems to know the other underlying questions that pne6may be hesitant to ask. He is very knowledgeable and you leave feeling more knowledgeable as a result.

Dr. Brooks was so helpful, efficient, and informative! I have been dealing with chronic eczema since I was a baby. Over the last year and a half, I have visited several doctors, spent hundreds of dollars on ointments and creams, and removed every possible allergen from my house + diet. Right away, he knew what kind of treatment I needed and after one day of using the new ointment, my skin has already seen an improvement. I highly recommend him. (Side note: he talks fast so take notes if you must and ask questions!)

Dr. Brooks and his staff know how to treat patients with dignity and respect versus other doctors' offices. My impression of Dr. Brooks is he's outstanding and among the best in his profession. The office staff is professional, kind and courteous - which goes a long way with me. I could not believe I did not have to wait thirty minutes to an hour to see the doctor. I was seen at my appointment time. It's rare for me to say this about a doctor's appointment, but I'm looking forward to my next appointment.

It has taken me years and a lot of research to find a dermatologist in this area, but I think I finally found the right one for me! Dr. Brooks was everything I expect in a physician: time-conscious, knowledgeable, thorough, patient, and professional. He talked through my concerns and answered all of my questions (and I had plenty)! My search for a dermatologist is finally over!

Dr. Brooks talks quickly, but he gives a lot of information. He went over my medication multiple times to make sure I understood everything. He also made sure I did not leave with any unanswered questions. He is very engaged and gives direct eye contact so you know he is actually paying attention. I would definitely go back to him.

Very personable doctor, without attempts of false promises and at once explaining that he is on a conservative side of whatever improvement in the name of enhanced features. That is what to my mind every good doctor in skin cosmetic dermatology is inclined to practice. Prices are very compatible not unreasonable and apparently with passing to a patient discounts whenever his practice can afford it based on a price of a product. I for once not knowingly about that period of special price have made a visit today.
