I would not recommend this Dr Brackett to know one. My sister went in the office yesterday after waiting for 5.5 to 6 months. And was told her appointment was cancelled 2 months ago but was never contacted and her primary Dr was never contacted. Due to a disability claim that has nothing to do with his finding. What happened to Compassion as part of a Dr oath. She ask for the Office Manager an was told he was it and would not come out meet with he between patients.
