Patient Comments (2)
BAR HARBOR, Maine |
After a rare cancer diagnosis, we asked Dr. Brooks about a second opinion, he replied "I would be happy to write you a referral but they wouldn't know any more than I do." We requested an early 2nd appointment because my father's health was steadily declining with no explanation. Dr. Brooks made us wait over an hour for five minutes of his disrespectful, dismissive treatment, and to falsely state "This has nothing to do with cancer.....this is not cancer." My dad is dying of metastasis in Boston

I found Dr. Brooks to be arrogant, condescending and rude. I was also unimpressed with his examination.
