I'm so, so happy and grateful with what Dr. Brooks did to my face today. When I got home and looked in the mirror, it was as though he had erased 20 plus years off my face. Thank God for Dr. Brooks!! If i were a rich man, I would've given him $100,000 tip today. We are luck to have him here in DC.

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.

Dr. Brooks is professional, personable, and took care of my concern quickly. While he does have a tendancy to speak very quickly, Dr. Brooks doesn't rush the appointment - spending the time you need to communicate and get a clear resolution to whatever the concern.

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.
