TERRIBLE SURGEON!! Surgery on my mothers ear and now she looks deformed!! Went back and showed him and he was VERY rude. Her ear has been infected ever since surgery. Now she has to have another surgery. Definitely a different surgeon. DO NOT GO TO DR. BROOKS!

He did not allow me to talk. He did not explain what he was doing and talked in a very rude way when I didn't understand what he wanted me to do. His demeanor indicated he doesn't like his job.
