Dr. Brooks is a wonderful doctor. I saw him for the first time about 9 years ago when I had a bulging disc and degenerative disc disease and could hardly walk. I had been told by several others I needed surgery but Dr. Brooks suggested we try physical therapy first. It worked miracles and I haven't had any other trouble until recently. Dr. Brooks was understanding, sympathetic and took time to answer all my questions. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I have been dealing with chronic pain from multiple injuries for over a decade. Yesterday was my 1st appointment with Dr Brooks. After so many bad experiences with SO many doctors, I was terrified to meet with another....but Brooks was wonderful. He is thorough, caring, knowledgeable, endearing and a great resource for all aspects of my care. I feel like meeting with him was much the same as being given a life preserver.
