    I've been a patient of Dr Brak for more than 24 years because she is awesome. You're never rushed during an appointment and she listens to all of your concerns. She makes sure you understand what you've been told about what you're being seen for. Dr Brak has a genuine concern for your health.

    Several years ago I was a patient of Dr. Derken. At that time I had been on Medicare disability for several years. Arriving for an appt. with Dr. Derken one day I was advised I would see Dr. Brak. At the visit Iwith Dr. Brak I was advised that I COST THE OFFICE MONEY any time I came in and was no longer welcome as a patient in their office. I was not permitted to see Dr. Derken and no longer welcome in the office as a patient. I would not consider this MD if you have complicated med. issue
