Correct diagnosis, painless treatment. Pain level greatly reduced. Short wait times in clinic waiting room.

I have been a patient of Dr. Brooks for a number of years with no complaints. He takes time to explain what are his concerns with my situation, what he would recommend for treatment and why, and as an older person I deeply appreciate his kind way of caring for his patients.
