What People Say About Dr. Ari Brooks, MD

Dr Ari Brooks creates time to listen to patients. When the answer is not known he says so, and explains whether further tests are needed, the outcome of another treatment is needed or another area of expertise is needed. He is very clear, gentle and empathetic. I recommend him without reserve. He has a great sense of humor and leaves one laughing through the years. He is very responsive through Penn Medicine email and by phone

Where do I begin about Dr. Brooks? He took such good care of me from the moment I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer until my final visit. Dr. Brooks walked me through all steps of my care. I felt entirely comfortable and confident in his care. He is trust worthy and I would not hesitate to recommend him to family, friends, or anyone who needed a great surgeon who will take excellent care of them. I am glad I chose Penn Medicine because it is true we're you first begin your care is so important.
