What People Say About Dr. Burke Brooks Jr, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
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.
