I have been going to Dr. Brodkin for about 20 years. I though she was wonderful until I had an actual problem. That is when you find out the most about people. After several tests and visits with a lot of time and money spent, we schedule my surgery to find out she will only use a assistant surgeon that is NOT contracted with my plan. I can either pay $400 out of pocket for non-contacted assistant or find a new provider. She will not use any other assistant. I am devastated and in tears.

Dr. Brodkin and her staff are Fantastic. I couldn't be happier with them and feel so blessed she was my doctor throughout my pregnancy and delivery. She is not only board certified and actually knows what she is talking about, but she is friendly and honest.

in over 40 yrs of having a pap, i have never been asked if they can use a pediatric instrument-which i needed for several years due to menopause symptoms. she spends time listening to you, has lots of knowledge. i did not feel rushed. highly recommend her.

Yeah Right 4 Stars for who the filthy rich

Ok their fees are ridiculous literally 4 times that of other Docs. If you have an emergency situation and lets say you just switched Insurance don't bother calling they could care less. My wife was 27 weeks along and started to have preterm labor. Went to ER and got things stopped after 4 hours. Went the next day to office and told them we had new insurance and that the new cards would be in soon. Remind you we just had a pretty good scare. We were than turned away due to the fact we didn't have proof of insurance or we had everything but the card itself. We were than told we could pay cash but it would be 660 dollars to see her. We asked for what they said she will only see you if you start a payment plan for delivery, which was about 5000k which they already billed our old insurance for and we already paid 300 dollars in deductibles and towards the amount 10% we owed. So needless to say we were never seen a day after we had a preterm labor serious issue. The doctor wouldn't even talk to us...... ALL ABOUT MONEY NOT ABOUT PATIENT CARE. we asked the nurse what we should do and they stared at us with a blank face like if you don't have any money we wont talk to you..... WE have insurance and the whole they just dont care they are always late never nice and they act like they are just to get you in the door to take your money. 3800 just for office visits and prenatal care..... 8000 plus for the whole is like 3 to 4 times the normal price and they are horrible NO THANK YOU... Get some manners and care about your patients.
