I went for an appoiment because i am trying to get pregnant and I am 21. When i saw the doctor she was surprised and asked me why??! That i should not because i am young. And then she was asking me about if I am studying (yes I am) and when she asked me about my husband's job ( he is in the army) she said that they dont pay good and again she said that i shouldnt try to get pregnant.. which is my decition!. At the end she just gave me a paper about how to get pregnant. I can google that! Horribl

I just moved to Stamford, CT and have to find new doctors. I’m very pleased that I made an appointment and met with Dr Monica Brito today. She’s very nice, thorough, and spent time with me discussing my health issues. I felt comfortable talking to her. I would recommend her to my family and friends....

Dr. Brito was attentive and present during my visit. She connects to much more than the physical body and this was important to me.

I had the worst experience with a physician in my life with this woman. I have never come across a less sympathetic, less caring human being in my life. She was entirely focused on administrative details and didn't care or realize that her brusk manner (in an already vulnerable time) was upsetting me. I strongly encourage you to reconsider if you are thinking about using this doctor. I got into my car and cried....which I have never done before in my life.

I had made an appt 2 weeks prior and was told to come a few minutes early. I had been sick all night and arrived 7 minutes late. Staff said we may have to reschedule, which would have been ok if not for the Dr. who felt the need to come out and be rude, arrogant and short. I tried explaining that I needed to only see if my baby was ok, i was worried due to my previous histories of MC. She said, "if it was that important, you should've been here earlier". Terrible person, condescending, unkind.

She helped me identify the pain I was experiencing, but I was extremely disappointed in her bedside manner (especially considering my vulnerable state while being examined). As I tried to explain what was going on with my body (which she hadn't seen before that appointment), she condescended to me. Not okay. On top of that, I still don't know how to ease my pain. She is not my normal ob/gyn. I wouldn't have gone if I'd had other choices available to me. The 2 stars are for the diagnosis only.

About Me

My patient care philosophy is focused on treating the patient; not the "disease". Understanding that each woman is a unique individual with her own sensitivities, reactions and experience to disease processes and using evidence based recommendations ...
