Specialties

Dr. Richard L Brooks has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

If you need your meds on time, find another Dr.

This has occurred twice now which had led me to seek another pcp. The first time I called in a refill was on a Friday morning. I dropped by the pharmacy on the way home from work Friday evening to see that it hasn't been filled not had the r even called the pharmacy back. I called the after hours line even though they still should have been open according to their business hours and the nurse said Dr brooks was out of town and basically nothing could be done. Second time and lay happened yesterday. Basically same story, so the bottom line is if you need your meds when you run out don't rely on this doctor.

Love Dr. Brooks and his nurse, Stella. Receptionist is wonderful to deal with and schedules appointments in a professional manner. Had a problem getting an MRI scheduled in a timely manner. The employee who handles this still had not turned it in to the insurance company for pre-authorization a day and a half later.
