Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Brody himself is very knowledgeable, however, the entire staff and general facility is very unprofessional and haphazard. The doctor and older receptionist are very nice, however, very forgetful and unorganized (which is not the best feeling going into a doctors office). They talk during the appointment, forget many details about your visit, and Dr. Brody even checked his phone while reading results to me. He has very good reviews, which I'm assuming is from more of the fertility side. If you need a general OBGYN check up I would not recommend this facility. The whole experience made question if I should get a second opinion - and that was just for an check up!
Went Great!!..so patient. He asked lots of questions and he answered many questions from me.
Dr. Brody makes clear from the moment you step in his office that your health and well-being are his top priority.
He very nice and communicate well with his patients
The visit with Dr. Brody was extremely informative. I found his bedside manner to be very thorough and professional. I would definitely recommend him.
Dr. Brody is amazing! He is professional, kind and the most knowledgeable doctor I've seen. I've been turned down as a patient by specialists at UCSD and Scripps but Dr. Brody not only knew about my rare genetic disorder but reassured me that there are a number of therapies available to help. He spent over an hour reviewing my complicated history of surgeries etc and then right away we established a plan for going forward. He's so involved in the medical community that he knows all the best specialists in each field and helps manage these referrals, alleviating the overwhelming aspects of finding the right care yourself. You can tell in an instant that he genuinely cares about his patients. I'm so lucky to have found him and his excellent staff. I highly highly recommend Dr. Brody!!
I saw Dr. Brody and wished that I had gone there sooner. He was caring and listened to my questions and concerns and treated me with kindness. We got my next appointments set up and I am looking forward to being a patient and getting my health concerns addressed.
I love Dr. Brody. He's the best doctor I've ever had. He listens, he's empathetic, extremely knowledgeable, and he spends time getting to know you and your health problems. I started seeing Dr. Brody 2 years ago when I first found out I had Hashimoto disease. At that point I was miserable and scared, fast forward two years...I feel fantastic, my symptoms have significantly improved and Dr. Brody has guided me to good health. Thank you!!!
My First visit was just getting my history, which is complicated. Dr Brody was empathetic, listened well & read my notes. He explained his plan for discovering the causes of my symptoms. I'm optimistic.
He is an amazing doctor!!
Dr. Brody is awesome, very thorough and knowledgeable. I was immediately comfortable. I've found my new doctor and I'm super happy!! Pat is just as awesome, great sense of humor!!
I have been there twice and they are nice. The patient rooms are very hot . Also , they forget alot of the stuff they say so they are constantly repeating themselves, and asking the same questions.
He is knowledgeable about his field . He is s perfect doctor
I thought he was very nice and assuring that he can help me. I just was expecting to do more on the first visit.
Time is scheduled to allow all issues to be discussed.
He was attentive and offered to answer any questions. He also explained everything and gave even more info on the topic. He was great, got to know me, great doctor overall. However, the wait to see him was long.
Nice doctor, however the office is not desireable. For example, the only restroom was out of order, and a foul order not associated with the restroom throughout the space. Despite few small issues his assistance is pleasant.
Great. Sweet doctor.
It was fine
