He was unprepared for our visit. Asked why we were there. Abrupt manner in which he delivered a death sentence to my family member. Didn’t examine her or answer all her questions. Finally, found all her records and just sat there and read the reports. Left feeling hopeless and felt the need for a second opinion.

Dr Brooks uses intimidation to force his way even when he is very wrong. He does not care at all about any opinion or thought other than his own. He would not look us in the face when speaking to us as he barreled through the appointment. He refused to answer any questions we had and left my husband feeling hopeless about his condition when we still had treatment options that Dr Brooks would not address. Dr Brooks refuses to make accommodations for the Deaf community through the Covid pandemic and outright argued with me in a waiting room because I could not understand him. I really can’t speak to his skill as a physician because he never attempted to treat, just send away.

He filled in for another oncologist before my chemo, but apt. had been scheduled for quite some time.. He did not even take the time to look up my electronic chart before entering exam room - knew nothing about my treatment nor condition. Was ok with a couple of questions, but after that, it was clear that he was not interested in any more questions. I would not recommend him as I feel this attitude reflects poorly upon his professionalism and sincere interest in the patient's well-being.
