Verified Patient Reviews
I took my boys to see Dr Brooks for acne. I loved that she educated them on diet and the importance of sunscreen. She simplified home care instructions so they are able to easily follow them.
My policy is to NOT provide such comments.
Excellent dermatologist. Very friendly... very happy with her
It was a good appointment. She understood my concerns. Was talking very politely. Hope I feel better soon. Thank you
Dr. Brooks was really nice and professional.
Dr. Brooks was very professional and personable. Her bedside manners were excellent and I didn't feel rushed during my appointment. My appointment also started on time. The receptionist staff were also friendly and helpful.
Nice and professional, no complaints.
Dr. Brooks answered all our questions and gave us clear instructions on how to treat the issue! Thanks.
She was amazing
Very knowledgeable, polite, and caring. She was really good to my daughter.
Dr.Brooks has awesome bedside manner. She's very patient and asks open ended questions to better understand your concerns. My only complaints are the long wait time to be seen and the impossibility of getting an appointment. I was seen within fifteen minutes for today's visit, but in the past I've waited 45 minutes to an hour. Appointments need to be booked a month or more in advance since she is always full. If those two things don't bother you, then I would definitely give her a shot!
She was very nice and she diagnosed my skin problem right away. I definitely recommend her.
Dr. Brooks is wonderful. She's patient, listens, and is very kind. The other staff are another story. First, they didn't have my appointment in the system for some reason so I waited over an hour. Then, when I was seen the nurse brought in someone she was training (of an opposite gender to myself) and then proceeded to talk only to him for the remainder of the time she was working with me. She told him, "you can take this one" (meaning me, as if I'm an object or burden, not a patient) and they spoke about feeling tired in the day and inter-office dynamics. She did not ask if it was okay for him to come, she did not explain that he was training, she did not tell me we needed to go to another room after my vitals were taken, and she asked me personal questions (which is reasonable, but that I wouldn't have wanted to answer in front of an opposite gendered professional). Lastly, when I then went to check out, Dr. Brooks had told me to book another appointment in 3-4 weeks. The receptionist told me I couldn't do that and did not offer an explanation. The other staff behind the desk also gave strange looks as if querying how on earth I could ask to be seen in such a time frame. When I explained that the doctor told me to come back at that time, there was an excuse for the delay given and the receptionist was then able to find a time that was within the needed time frame.
It was professional and very quick
I really liked the actual doctor and my appointment, but I had to wait 65 minutes from when my appointment time was and that is ridiculous!
Today was my first visit with Dr Brooks. She was extremely friendly and professional; all the staff was as well. The office is beautiful and very clean. Dr Brooks answered all my questions and never made me feel rushed. I left the appointment feeling informed and very happy with my visit!
