I was referred to Dr Brooks after experiencing a rash on a large percentage of my body. At first I thought we were moving ever so slowly slowly but as my condition progressed he was amazing -- calling be to see what meds were working, requesting tests, and once a confirmed diagnosis he quickly referred me to a specialist in the field. I was very impressed with him, thank you Dr Brooks!!!
