He is completely ignorant. He lies always, make up untruthful reports about patients. He only think of patients as money not caring for them. Stay away from him.

I initially liked Dr. Brewster and all of the other people involved. I had a polyp in my nose removed. They never quoted me a price. I simply relied on internet message boards and doctor websites for cost estimates, which seemed reasonable. However I was shocked to get a bill for $42,000. This was more than my friend's hip replacement surgery, and 3-4 times what other medical groups estimate on healthcare estimate websites. Here's what's also disturbing. During his assessment, Dr. Brewster diagnosed me with another disease but didn't bother to tell me. He buried this in his notes, which I only discovered months after my surgery. How ethical is it not to disclose a disease to a patient?

I met Dr. Brewster as a reference by my PCP. I later had surgery and follow up appointments with him and have great things to say about him. Not only was the surgery a great success, I can now breathe out of my left nostril, but he is very professional and courteous. I even wanted to see him once and he made time in his busy schedule both to see me and answer my questions.
