I moved to central Illinois three years ago. I still, and will, keep Dr. Brooks as my Rheumatologist. He is knowledgeable to consider all health issues as he works with my arthritis and fibromyalgia. He respects and considers my input, and explains the issues in terms I can understand. He’s a Doctor who is in the profession because he cares about the health of his patients. What this article doesn’t bring out is that his first degree is Chemical Engineer! I,more than, highly recommend him!
