in Cerritos, CA |
Dr. Brakin is one of those old school doctors who don't care about the clock and will not run through patients like they are the next person on the list. She's been taking care of our daughter since she was 4 years old and is 11 years old as she had thyroid issues as a young child. We love Dr. Brakin and even his support staff is professional and nice. Sometimes the wait time is over than expected, but his care supercedes that.

Very knowledgeable. Addresses my son's and my concerns and offers attainable, useful suggestions.
Extremely knowledgable, took the time to explain my child's complex endocrine issue.
