Wonderful Care
Patient with the patient, willing to explore treatment options based on the best available data, including DNA. Very personable, relatable, and caring; none of that dismissive attitude a gal too often gets from a physician.

Oncology with a heart
Dr Brooks has been with me on my cancer journey from the start. She has offered me information to make decisions that were not always easy to make. She has been thorough in her exams and has given me compassionate care. She is in short the best!

Excellent Cancer Care
This cancer care is absolutely the best! The entire experience from the time I walk into the waiting room, wee the nurse and the doctor flows smoothly without any waiting. Everyone listens to my concerns and they always address them and they are sympathetic.

Dr. Brooks is amazing
At my first meeting with Dr Brooks, she was very kind and compassionate re: my cancer diagnosis, but she was also forthright and knowledgeable re: the care I would need. She spent considerable time with us answering questions from myself, my husband and our son. Later, I had more questions re: a test I wanted done, so I emailed her. I was astounded at how quickly she answered my email- within hours, not days- especially knowing how very busy the BRCC is on any given day.

I would recommend her not only to my family & friends, but to everyone I run into (and I do!) She is brilliant, sensitive and really listens to her patients. In other she is a Hem/Onc doctor who treats the whole person. I feel so enormously fortunate to have such a top-notch as Dr. Brooks treating me and her background attests to that as well.

This was a routine follow up visits. I look forward to Dr Brooks always being straightforward and supportive. Sense funny to say, but I look forward to these visits. She reaches beyond the cancer care to see if there are other problems bothering me. She's outstanding
