I was looking forward to getting answers on my back issues that have been ongoing for several years. We had to travel 3.5 hours to see this doctor and with a bad back that is very painful. I was extremely disappointed that Dr. Brooks didn't look at my back, didn't review an x-ray or MRI with me, didn't explain any of the reasoning behind his diagnosis that "nothing can be done for your back". Very rude, cruel, & no patient care. I'm 42 & would like to have some quality life ahead, not pain.

He is a genuine grade A jerk!!! Doesn't care about patients main problem or treat them with respect. Just comes in saying to quit smoking and loose weight. Like this will cure all my wife's problems!!! Would not recommend to anybody or even a sick bacteria! So sad medical care gets a bad wrap from guys like this!!!

I originally came in after an accident with a broken t10 l3 l4 l5. I was treated well and on my feet the next day. I went two years and somehow broke the screws in the hardware. Dr. Brooks removed the rod with in two weeks from the visit and I'm up and going again. Thank you to your staff and your expertise Dr. Brooks
