He doesn't listen to any concerns you have because he is so much wiser than you. I DO NOT recommend him! So glad there was another doctor who listened to me.

Dr. Brocato doesn't listen to what you have to say. Just comes in, checks your throat, throws out ideas, interrupts you and sends you off to another doctor. Doesn't really care for his patients.
