I have been under Dr. Brooks's care for almost 4 years now for a malignant GIST. She has consistently been caring and responsive. Dr Brooks has closely monitored my condition, medications, and general health during this time and done an excellent job. I especially appreciate her willingness to be available whenever I have a concern or question.
