Patient Comments (2)

I have been going to Dr. Brakke since 2012 and have NEVER had an experience that wasn't good. She is knowledgeable, kind, prompt and explains everything you want or need to know. I searched long and hard before I found her.

She condoned aggressive sports which would have been detrimental to healing tendons. She didn't interpret the information I provided her correctly. She wouldn't return a phone call.
