I saw Dr Jay Brooker for my injured knee as a result of a car accident. As soon as he found out that my injury would never result in knee replacement or any type of surgery, he wouldn't give me the time of day. He did have me get an x-ray, but he didn't even look at my knee!!! His office made me pay $210.00 because I was going to be using the medical part of my car insurance. It was going to be $420.00 until I told the office manager that he didn't even look at my knee. I would not recommend Dr Jay Brooker for anything! Nothing went well and everything needs improvement!

My mom had surgery with this provider. He was rude and condescending. He blame my mom for not following with him directly. The staff was informed that my mom needed to see Dr. Brooker but instead they schedule my mom with his assistant. His work is also sloppy. My mom needed another surgery months later. Please do no see this provider.

Doctor and staff are rude and condescending. They consistently blame each other for mistakes regarding patient care. They joke about the quality of hospitals they provide services to in the most unprofessional way.

He is a rude and condescending man. Instead of apologizing for the incompetency of his staff regarding my father's care, he decided to try and degrade me and provide misinformation. I wouldn't let him treat my worst enemy. Please save yourself the time and find a different doctor.

The experience with this clinical staff was awful. The office staff was very rude and condescending. Angela at the front desk was especially nasty and the staff at large has a disdain and disregard for the elderly and minorities.When I complained about how my 80 year old mother was treated and what Angela had said to me she outright lied and the Dr Shah that I complained to seemed to care less. We were even more disrespected when Angela kept addressing my,80 year old mother by her first name.
