Today was my first visit with Dr. Brooks. I was taken into a room before my appointment time! Dr. Brooks addressed all of my concerns and asked me many relevant questions after learning I had a prior history of Basel cells.The receptionist was professional, polite and accommodating. Dr. Brooks generously gave me samples of medication to treat my condition. I will refer him as often as possible. His office deserves a 5 star review in all areas.

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 comeup 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.

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 yourvisit 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 hadarrived 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.
