Quick yet thorough. Almost no wait. Excellent.
There was no wait, the took me on time, office was clean and the doctor was very nice, professional and thorough.
The staff was very pleasant and professional. Once I had completed all paperwork, I was seen right away.
Dr. Brooks is wonderful. He will officially be my new dermatologist.
Just had my first appointment with Dr. Brooks, and I think he is great. Got right down to business and addressed my skin problem and treated me quickly and effectively. I’m following up in two weeks and would definitely recommend him to others!
Excellent doctor and office.
Very good doctor I will highly recommend him
When I called to set-up an appointment, I was treated respectfully and cordially. They took my info and got me right in the next day as they knew I was concerned. Upon my arrival, I was greeting well, asked questions that the dr. needed to know, and had me fill in my info. My wait was less than 10 minutes (that was a miracle; thought I was on Candid Camera as I worked in a md office for 27 years and we were on time once or twice). The doc did what was needed, not in a rush to answer any questions (which i took advantage to ask a couple ?s) and sent me on my way. It was a wonderful experience and I would recommend him to anyone (well, if they ask).
He was quick, thorough, informative, professional, and empathetic. Love him!
Very thoughtful, good explanations, time efficient!
Very professional, caring and straight to point. Very happy with him!
Dr. Brooks is awesome! Very nice and the office is very clean too. The women behind the desk seemed very disorganized and sassy, however. There were wayyy too many people behind the desk for a saturday midday. 2-3 women who appeared to actually be working behind the desk and then 2-3 younger looking women on their phones and futzing with the printer, and then snapping at me because they couldn't sort out the fact that I had multiple insurances. The Justin Beiber like Chirstmas music in the lobby was not only abominable, but wayyy too loud, in fact I heard it in my appointment room.
Very professional, knowledgeable, and made me feel very comfortable from the start. Thank you!
Thorough and requested a follow up to check if prescriptions were working.. Very nice doctor and staff
Probably the best possible doctor visit I have had since I moved to Long Island. The staff was organized and the office is modern. It was the shortest wait time I’ve ever experienced and everything with my Rx went smoothly.
First time meeting Dr Brooks he is absolutely awesome his office staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Brooks to anyone. You will not be disappointed with this office.
Super easy to get my appt, clean office, great staff, plenty of parking. Dr Brooks is do amazing and I am so lucky to have come across him on zocdoc.com. The best derm I’ve ever had. Really cared, never felt rushed, thorough, smart, effective. He’s the one to go see. Thank you Dr Brooks
It was absolutely great, he was very professional, has great knowledge, cares about what the patient needs to say and preferences. He was very caring and will definitely come back to his office if I have another derm problem
Dr. Brooks spent more time with me than most specialists I've seen in the past. His concern for my issue was genuine and he was proactive with diagnostic tests. He was compassionate, yet very professional with a very human touch! I would recommend Dr. Brooks to anyone in need of a Dermatologist.
Dr. Brooks & his staff were very professional & helpful I would recommend everyone to come here.
Great. Doctor and Staff was great
This doctor speaks like a robot reading off of a written script. He came in to see my for 2 minutes and just said I have acne diet related, gave me a cortisone shot with out asking for consent or even telling me about it and he put on a peel on my face in broad daylight at 930 am. Then told me to just use benzoyl peroxide. It was very unprofessional and he is not knowledgeable at all. He does not personalize your visit. Rather he treats you with just seeing a few pimples on your face and categorizes you the same as everyone else. I changed my dermatologist and with the one I have now I couldn’t be any happier. She takes pictures of my skin so we can see the progress. She said that a cortisone shot has to be given 48 hours within the newly formed pimple however Steven brooks gave me a shot on my weeks old pimples.
Knowledge & lovely man. I have seen him a few times and will continue to go back!
Dr. Brooks was very informative. I would highly recommend him.
Very knowledgable. He gave us plenty of different approaches to help our skin issues. I was very impressed with how modern his office and his practice is.
Very knowledgeable and patient. Had me in and out in know time not feeling rushed!
Dr. Brooks and his nurse/PA were great. Very friendly and offered good information. The front desk staff however, weren't friendly and unhelpful. It's a good thing I don't have to interact with the front desk staff often because then I would not recommend the doctor.
Very knowledgable and hands down the nicest and most caring doctor I've ever had!
A great experience with Dr. Brooks for my 3 month old grandson that suffers from eczema. Dr. Brooks was incredibly helpful, knowleable, kind and personable. I would highly recommend Dr. Brooks.
DR. BROOKS WAS VERY INFORMATIVE AND PROVIDED THE NECESSARY INFORMATION I NEEDED FOR MY CONCERNS. THE STAFF WAS VERY FRIENDLY, AND PROFESSIONAL. AND PROVIDED A VERY COMFORTING ENVIRONMENT. THE MEDICAL ASSISTANT WAS VERY SWEET, I WILL DEFINITELY RECOMMEND MORE PEOPLE TO COME TO DR. BROOKS AND RESOLVES THEIR NEEDS.
He is a very nice doctor and take the time to listen to you.
He's great! I had a skin emergency that needed to be looked at and he knew exactly what it was. A bit of a far drive from me but worth it for a high quality specialist. Also, very clean office and i only waited a few minutes.
I was first time patient and first time in a dermatology office, so I was very nervous. Went to DR. Brooks office for a fool body screen since I spend a LOT of time in the sun and accumulate lots of freckles and mols over the years. I arrived there 30 min. before my appointment so the time I wait was pretty much 30 min. DR. Brooks war very professional, very helpful and knowledgeable. He clear me up on all my concerns, removed a mal that didn't look good from his perspective and send the sample to the lab and I am going to remove some tugs that bother me for few years, in 2 weeks. I'm definitely recommend this doctor to any one and go back for some skin cosmetic treatments in the near future.
It was a pleasant experience. I will recommend him .
Very professional and kind.
Dr. Brooks was thorough, explained everything.
Great doctor and know what he's doing! It was my first time seeing a dermatologist. I had plenty of complaints but I literally shoot everything at him and he just knew what to do on the spot. Now just waiting for his medications to work the magic for my complaints.
Very knowledgeable and experienced doctor. He knew exactly what was wrong with my skin just by looking at it. The stuff was very nice as well.
Amazing, very professional and helpful advise.
Willing to listen and develop the individualized treatment suited for my condition instead of sticking a "one size fits all" approach. Recommended!
Wonderful experience. I highly recommend!
Very kind and professional!
It was fine
Dr. Booker is the nicest dermatologist I've ever been too. Helped me a lot and made me feel comfortable. I had to wait a little but that's been the same with every dermatologist I've been to.
Very disappointed. Dr. Brooks was not knowledgeable in the condition that I had. He recommended a few injections on the area which did not help at all. Then, when we decided to start a different medication regimen, he became irritated when he had to make a call on my behalf, making me feel extremely uncomfortable in his office. He failed to follow up properly, which delayed my treatment for nearly 2-3 months. He never returned my urgent calls or messages. I understand that physicians can become very busy. However, it was evident that Dr. Brooks lacked genuine care in improving my condition and helping me overall. The front desk staff is also extremely unenthusiastic and dismissive. I'm glad that I was able to find another doctor who knows how to treat my condition. I will never return here again.
Quick and simple. I was in and out within 45 minutes or less. Dr. Brooks took his time with me, made sure he answered all my questions, took care of any concerns I had with my skin. He changed my life, I can't remember the last time my skin looked this great! Thank you Dr. Brooks & Staff!
Office staff was great. Visit was quick and the Doctor provided alot of good tips. He took his time and didn't rush.
My family and I had a very pleasant visit. Dr. Brooks was very friendly and quite informative regarding my concern. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs any dermatological consult/attention.
Didn't even wait more than 2 minutes! Was very nice and tried to accommodate me as much as he could where the medicines he prescribed would be covered by insurance. Everyone is very nice there and is very clean :)
Well run, clean, office, pleasant manner. Explained things well. Did a head to toe skin cancer screening.
This was a great find through ZocDoc. The location was convenient to my office. As a first time patient, I was impressed with the cleanliness of the office. Very bright and modern decor. At least 1 staff person greeted me upon arriving. Which I think is very important to do. Being acknowledged, shows a degree of appreciation and respect for customers and clients. People have choices with so many practices out there. Big plus. Absolutely no wait time. I was very happy about that because my time is extremely value. Doctor was very nice, pleasant, engaging, and a good listener. Ciao
This was my first visit and it was a great experience!! Dr. Steven Brooks is one of the best dermatologists I've ever been to. I was extremely happy with how it went and he is very knowledgeable and explains everything. All he does is want to help you!! I highy recommend him.
Dr. Brooks solved a problem that has been plaguing me for 8 months in 1 visit. I left his office feeling better with a plan in place. This is after seeing 3 other doctors!!! He has excellent clinical judgement and has an exceptional bed side manner. The office is gorgeous and his staff is welcoming...I was able to book an appointment through Zocdoc the day before!!!! The office also uses technology to the fullest... I will never go anywhere else again!!!
I give this doctor a 5 star rating, he is very personable, thorough, and takes time to answer all questions. I've been to a lot of dermatologist and this doctor stands out for the right reasons. I highly recommend him !
Today was my first day meeting Dr. Brooks. He care of me was outstanding. Basically, i was told by another pt in his waiting room this was NOT his normal to have us waiting a little over 30 mins to be seen. So, i didn't hold it against him. This first impression was an excellent one because it was thorough, comfortable and very informative. Choose Dr. Brooks for your dermatological needs. You won't regret it!
He was very professional and helpful. He explained my diagnosis in depth and took the time to explain all of my concerns. In addition, his assistant and front desk staff was extremely pleasant.
He is amazing! Knows what he's doing and gives you a solution. Friendly with follow up.
Best doctor I ever had.....he is so kind and honest .......he understands what patient wants ......

Awesome, friendly , thorough dr with great bedside manner. Actually cares about his patients and is proactive on getting to skin issue and comes up w a solution .
My visit to Dr. Brooks office was great. Very professional front desk staff, organized and thebwait time was not more than 12 minutes. Once in Dr. Brooks office, I was greeted by a nurse that reviewed my clinical history carefully. Shortly thereafter the Dr entered thebroom and listened to my concerns attentively. After assessing my skin condition, he made recommendations for ongoing treatment. He was cordial, attentive, and genuinely interested in making sure that my needs and interest were met. Will definitely recommend to family and friends.
He had great bedside manner and explained everything in detail. He made sure I felt comfortable with the procedures he had discussed. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a dermatologist!
Dr. Brooks explained everything thoroughly and answered all my questions patiently. Very nice doctor.

I needed a place to go to get my fave checked out and i looked online saw this place and they had an appotiment the day that i needed. Has a great staff and the doctor was friendly and helped me out.
Had a great visit with Dr. Brooks. His office was very easy to work with, confirming my insurance before the appointment and taking me straight back, on time. The office is new and clean, a nice facility. Dr. Brooks listened well to my reason for visit, helped me a lot, and communicated well his recommendations and what I should expect next. Will Definitely continue to see him, was very pleased with my experience and highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a dermatologist, especially with weekend hours!
Felt like I was not being rushed, and all my conerns were addressed. Everything was taken care of in one visit, no return was needed. His bedside manner was excellent. I am very picky about doctors and this one I recommend. Also the staff was great.
The wait was really awful and unexpected from a Zocdoc provider. However, when I went into the back, the doctor came out quickly, and was very pleasant. The location isn't ideal for me, but I would go back to see if the waiting time could be improved.
The doctor was thorough. He took the time to explain. I thought he was terrific
His staff and himself were excellent and knowledgeable
Aside from the wait, great , friendly, efficient staff and the doc was excellent. Phenomal bedside manner with an incredibly engaging personality! Highly recommend .
Very professional and took the time to explain everything. I had a poison oak rash, and he thoroughly examined me to make sure it was not something more serious. He also took the time to do a cancer screen, and gave me some samples on skin care products.
He prides himself in his work, personalizes treatment, has a great staff and his center has ample parking, a modern feel and state-of-the-art facilities. I will be back, and often, and happy about it! Dr. Brooks is excellent. I'll be sending more people his way, for sure!! Patients in my practice are always looking for a great dermatologist. I have dark complexion, required a special approach and he was knowledgeable about it. Well done, Dr. Brooks!!
excellent and helpful provider knowledgable and took time to answer all my questions
Dr Brooks was excellent. He took pictures of the reason I came in to compare for my follow up in two months. Wonderful!
very pleasant, from Dr Brooks down to his staff. My son was very comfortable for Dr Brooks to do the procedure on him.
Very professional. Clean facilities. Nice front desk staff.
