A Horrific experience! She is temperamental as well as arrogant! Her residence had to apologize for her spoiled behavior and rudeness. She's also a liar! She will lie to the end if there's a mistake made with your care! Run for the wind ! In general has excellent doctors
in Chicago, IL 60610 |
I was in very serious condition during repair surgery because of mistakes made by Dr. Marie Crandall during prior surgery at another hospital. The mistakes that were made were on my bowel, bladder and ,vagina. During corrective surgery at Loyola, Dr. Brubaker came in and with her expertise was able to correct all the problems in her field(bladder,vagina) Not only is she highly respected in her field, she is dean of Loyola Medical School. I will be forever grateful for all she did for me.g

Dismissive, rude, I have actually seen her lie, she gets explosive if you don't understand the question and need more explaining. I've also seen her first hand lie for her peers to cover their actions

Dr Brubaker left me with a bladder fistula that even she and the Mayo Clinic in Mn. could not repair. This woman ruined my life.
