Fair and Accurate Diagnosis
Spends Time with Patients
Appropriate Follow-up
Not only is Dr. Brooks extremely smart, she is also deeply caring and compassionate. She treats her patients as individuals (not statistics), and is truly thoughtful in her advice and analysis. Receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer is terrifying. Dr. Brooks helped me to put that diagnosis into good perspective and to understand in depth what the results meant, what the treatment options were and both context and good reasons for each choice. She is truly gifted at what she does.
