This office may be for you only if you fear sterile medical equipment and procedures. They also sell herbs and have tai chi classes, but the attempts at being a spa-like environment fail because the patients and a good deal of the staff as so trashy! I felt like I was in Wal Mart or the bus station. Her PA is very nice, a few staff members are good as well. But Dr. Brass was one of the rudest, most ignorant doctors I have ever known. She is not intelligent, but very ignorant and rude. I don't want to see her again or have her deliver my baby. She also has a laugh like a cartoon witch you can hear all over the office. The office has no ultrasound, so you need to pay hundreds to be sent elsewhere for your scans. The staff is pretty clueless about drawing blood. Maybe you'll like this office for being different. I sure did not, was overall offended and saddened! Maybe she's racist, perhaps why she acted so rude to me?
I was really excited to try this doctor out after so many negative experiences with obgyn doctors. I am an educated woman and researcher and was hoping for a doctor willing to work with me. I set up an appointment for an annual wellness check but also said I had a number of questions because I struggle with infertility and had a terrible experience with a different dr when I had my son. When I got there for the appointment it wasn't with dr. Brass-Jones but with her PA Mary Ann. Because of previous experiences I was disappointed to not get to actually meet who I was planning on being my dr. Mary Ann seemed nice enough but wasn't all that helpful with my questions/concerns and I didn't feel like she cared to really help me. Then when I asked about the exam apparently they only booked the appointment as a 'consult' and not a full exam like I had asked for. The PA made it obvious I wouldn't be getting an actual exam at all. I left the office somewhat discouraged and disappointed but hopeful for something positive. She did suggest I try a holistic approach to the infertility which I was happy to try. So after paying a $60 copay for what I felt was not the most helpful or useful Q&A with a PA instead of the Dr. I paid $80 for two tinctures to hopefully help me get pregnant. Unfortunately it hasn't helped and I went through the awful taste twice a day for a long time for nothing. No one at the Drs office ever followed up with me. Then I get a $200 bill in the mail from them months later because they told my insurance I had PCOS (even though I told them I've never been diagnosed and it's only based on my own research of my symptoms that I even suggested that MIGHT be my issue with infertility but that's why I had come to them to begin with, to try and find out what's wrong and get help). So my insurance is saying it's pre-existing and True Harmony told me it's up to me to call my insurance and figure it all out. Well, that's just fine, I'll get it worked out eventually but I definitely am not happy with my experience with this Dr. or her office thus far. I'm really disappointed because I had high hopes that this office and dr would be different and what I was looking for in my health TEAM but I guess I was mistaken. Back to trenches to find a good dr that actually cares enough about their patients and works with them to help them in there health journey. Maybe she is that dr for some people, but I no longer think Dr. Brass-Jones is that Dr. for me, and that makes me very disappointed and sad. Some positives: they have a room with books and toys for your kid to play in and I think you can pay them a little to watch your kids during your visit but I had my mom with me, though the toys kept him easily entertained. Also they do at least try some more natural and holistic approaches though I'm not sure how effective their remedies are and they are limited on choices/options.
I have never been treated so poorly as I was with Dr. Brass. She doesn't care about her patients at all in my opinion. She won't explain anything, doesn't spend more than a minute with you, and LOVES to induce, despite billing herself as a natural birth doctor. She tried to push me to induce because she thought my baby was big(he was completely average, especially for my family, which I told her REPEATEDLY), then tried to induce me because she was going on vacation and of course when I went into labor during her vacation she performed a c-section on me. A week later my incision got infected and guess what....there was nobody to reach at her office. I had to call my GP to get a prescription for antibiotics. When I finally did get ahold of her office, nobody thought I should come in for a follow up. Needless to say, I will not go back and would never recommend her to anyone.
I've found the office to be very pleasant. Soothing atmosphere, very prompt getting me back for my appointments (no more than a 5 minute wait in the lobby) and all the staff have been very friendly and capable. Dr. Brass is clearly very intelligent and reasonable about pregnancy and birth. My only complaint is that she doesn't ever know who I am, or at least she never remembers any details of my medical history, even when it's really important. I would think a quick glance through my medical chart would refresh her memory before appointments, but she never does. I'm hypothyroid, and thank goodness I knew from my first pregnancy that I need to have my levels checked every 6 weeks, or it would never have gotten done. I had to remind her every time I needed the test and I had to ask what my results were every time. No calls from the office to let me know my levels were fine. I'm surprised to be writing a review like this, because at my first appt with Dr. Brass she put my insecurities to rest and made me feel confident about my birth plan. Yet, every appointment since the first has been strange, impersonal and awkward. She will just stare at me after I disclose information (some of it very personal) and then abruptly end our conversation. Sometimes, like today, she just walks out of the room and says "Ok, bye." with her back to me. This is after she stripped my membranes without talking to me about it first, or telling me she was going to do it. I'm very upset about this, because I've had a healthy pregnancy, am only 39 weeks, and I very clearly stated in my birth plan that I did NOT want my membranes stripped. Although, I don't know why she would remember that since she can't seem to remember anything else about me. Dr. Brass supports natural labor, natural induction (usually), VBACs, and she delivers at Banner Gateway, which has a spa-like labor pool (although, you can only use it for an hour at a time). If you need someone to connect with you and support you emotionally, Dr. Brass is not the doctor for you. But if you don't care about bedside manner, and you're just looking for a natural birth in a supportive hospital, especially if you're trying for a VBAC, she's perfect.
Cancellation without even apologizing. Dr.Brass Jones is very rude, she didn't even look at my face when she was in the room. The two times I saw her she was very irritable, angry and ill- mannered, Dr. Brass yielded at me for asking a question she said with loud voice "you don't understand!". She prescribed me a supplement and I asked her that I'm having some side effect she want answer and ignored me and I have to ask again this time she looked at the other direction . She did a pap test and didn't give me the result and when I asked her about it she said you need to call the lab and find out yourself!!!! and walked away just like that!!!. They didn't even tell me to follow up or what to do next. Extremely Horrible experience with this doctor. I will not go there even if she is the only doctor on this planet
