Had serious pain in my left elbow, made an appointment with Blue Ridge Bone & Joint in Hendersonville (now Emerge Ortho). Was assigned to Dr. Brooks, who gave me a shot in the back with the assurance that it might last about three months. Have been pain-free for over three years since then. Wonderful indeed!

Dr. Brooks is a bully and a horrible person. He caused my husband to nearly bleed to death following shoulder surgery then harrassed him nearly every day while he was in terrible pain. His arm isn't usable and will never be the same. It may not be fixable. My advice to anyone contemplating orthopedic surgery would be to choose another doctor!

Competent in area of study. Had both knees replaced at once in Pardee Hosp w/o issue. Dr kept wife up to date on status. Office admin staff second to none; they bend over backwards to accommodate the occasional surprise visit to meet my schedule. Morning appointments are more prompt than those in PM. New Nurse mixed up icing instructions, otherwise, went without hitch. Walked 86 steps on way to first therapy session. Haven't looked back since. It's been 13 months since the surgery.

On 5/2/17, Dr. Brooks did a total right knee replacement. At my initial consultation, surgery was immediately suggested, despite my asking how long before surgery was totally necessary. Since he butchered my knee surgery, my quality of life has diminished drastically! He bullies, demoralizes & humilates his patients. After surgery, spends no time during follow up, is belligerent when his actions are questioned and DENIES things said during past visits. FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR!!

Dr Brooks did my knee surgery 15 years ago and did an excellent job! I had complicated injuries and he did a superb job of repairing all of it. I have had 15 great years of use from that knee, and I have a very active job. I will more than likely need a knee replacement in the near future, and intend to have Dr Brooks do the surgery.

I have been a patient of Dr. Brooks since 2003. He has done arthroscopies on both my shoulders; he replaced one hip and both shoulders; I need both knees replaced, all due to osteoarthritis. I have done exceptionally well with all surgeries. I was back at work full-time with both shoulder replacements and back at work part-time eight days after my hip replacement. My daughter and granddaughter are also patients of Dr. Brooks. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Brooks to my family and friends. Gay C.

Dr Brooks has done 3 surgeries on my husband and 2 on me. The latest surgery was a knee replacement. He explained all my options and told me to let him know when and if a knee replacement was the best solution to the constant knee pain and limping that was causing stress on my hips and back. He ordered physical therapy initially to see if the symptoms improved. I had the surgery. Thank you Dr Brooks for your care and being there for us. Post op I and my therapist say i am doing very well.

Dr Brooks did my knee replacement surgery. I would recommend him as an excellent surgeon and professional. He took the time and patience to explain every step along the way. On a human level, Dr Brooks is a honest and caring man. Thank you Dr Brooks for everything. Gary

Dr. Brooks did nearly a dozen surgeries on me that were only needed because he screwed up the first time. I was young and he intimidated me into staying at his practice. He immediately went to cutting instead of physical therapy. He dismissed any suggestions I had because I was a young female. He was incredibly demoralizing to me. He also prescribed me dilaudid with refills when I had never had a narcotic before. That was not necessary.I believe he is responsible for making many people addicts.
