Patient Comments (6)
Pittsburgh, PA |
Very condescending. Always makes me feel guilty for not being the "Role Model Diabetic." I missed one appointment in four years and had to re-schedule, then she had to cancel the re-schedule appointment so we had to re-schedule again. When we finally met for the appointment (nearly one year later), she told me I'd have to schedule all my appointments with her assistant because I miss too many appointments! There HAS to be a better endocrinologist out there!

Outstanding specialist in management of endocrine disorders and diabetes.

Horrible experience each and every visit. Hard to believe UPMC employs such an unprofessional doctor. 1 star is far too high - more like ZERO star rating.

Dr. Brooks has the WORST attitude of any doctor I have visited. Arrogant, rude, and extremely condescending. She is the type of doctor that gives UPMC a bad name. I will be switching doctors.

I agree with Patient in Pittsburgh and will add that she never looked at me during the whole appointment. Instead, she kept her eyes on her computer. Would not recommend at all -- one star is too high of a rating.

Dr. Brooks is an awful doctor. Not only was she highly unprofessional during my appointment (yawning, coughing), she has an extremely bad attitude and is dismissive. Whenever I attempted to ask her questions, she gave me brief answers that did not really explain anything and she also seemed annoyed that I was asking questions in the first place (rolled her eyes a few times). The appointment was a total waste of my time and I have never been more upset with a physician's care.
