initial visit with Dr Brokaw s for injury to toes, Dr said no broken toes but said I had stress fracture, I told Dr my toes hurt, swallow, and felt like I was walking on pebble, he said toes weren't broken and seemed upset I couldn't recall incident indicating stress fracture, he put me in boot for stress fracture, I sought 2nd opinion , podiatrist sees no signs of stress fracture and treating me for broken toe and Morton's neuroma

I fell in December 2015 and suffered a fracture of the bones in the middle of my right foot. I am not an easy case because I have diabetes and RA. I went to Dr. Brokaw for a second opinion after 2 surgeries. My foot was not healing and I still had significant pain plus a mass of bone about the size of a golf ball on the inside of my foot. Dr. Brokaw performed reconstruction surgery with a bone graph. The foot is still not healing but I have complete trust in him. I trust his experience and skill
Thank you for the review, Joy. Our patient's experience is our top priority.

Dr Brokaw has followed me since 2010. I shattered my tibia plateau while on vacation in FL. Came home and FINALLY connected with him! ( the delay was in finding the right dr). He has seen me through a TKR and then a femur fx and repair. Nobody better!!

I was involved in an auto collision back in 1996. I was lifelined to Methodist Hospital to their Trauma Department . My injuries were traumatic and thanks to his God given talent as a surgeon I survived and am able to walk despite all the odds against me.

He is wonderful. I had to go to him for a workmans comp issue. He fixed it and I haven't had a problem since. My husband went to him with his knee and surgery has fixed it. I am now going back to him for an issue with my knee. I travel from Northern Indiana to Indianapolis to see him that is how much I trust him.

I am a workman's comp case. Have been on workman's comp since 7/1/2013. He was my 6th orthopedic doctor since my accident. He said I am going to have to trust him. I told him I don't trust anyone but God. He seemed upset by my answer I told him I thought I needed a rod put in my fibula to straighten it. He said you can't rod a fibula. I told him I saw on the internet you can. He then said my bone wasn't bad enough to have it done. No trust at all after that.
