Ratings for Dr. Mary Kay Brewster
I really, really like Dr. Brewster. She is not only knowledgeable about what she does but she really takes the time. I've seen several people complain about being late. But they do realize she may be late because she's taking the time to actually talk to her patients. If you are looking for someone who will be clinical, in and out, this is not the place to go. However, if you are looking for someone who is caring about who you are and what you are going through, then this is the office for you. She takes the "time" to get to know you and what your issues are. She's very knowledgeable on several fronts. In this day and age, that's really unheard of. I hope she never retires!
I felt the office was dirty, the Decor was all textiles and antiques inside the exam room, dusty dirty lace fabric and antique painted instrument trays. There were two dogs in and out of exam rooms thru installed dog doors. I thought I was in a shabby chic vetranarian office. The Doctor was petting the animals during the consult. Although when questioned on procedures and practices the docs response was certainly educated, her working knowledge of what lab to use and what person to talk about insurance coverage in her own practice was poor. We waited for an hour for her to get to us. I also felt her attire was unprofessional . I felt the things she said to me were unprofessional and unfocused . I wasn't even the patient I was there with my teen daughter and I felt terrible this was her first experience with a GYN. Thank goodness no exam was necessary, I would have pulled her out naked if necessary. She also asked me what blood work she should order- Not a good fit for sure.
I have always found Dr. Brewster to be pleasant and kind. Her staff is great too. One time I had to wait a bit for her to get to my appointment because she was at the hospital delivering a baby, but the staff was very apologetic about it. So was she. Overall, I find Dr. Brewster to be a caring and knowledgeable doctor.
Had I decided to review Dr. Brewster after my 1st appt. with her I would have had nothing but good things to day about her. However, my second visit was the extreme opposite and I don't plan on returning. Its somewhat unsettling to me that a doctor can have such extreme dispositions towards their patients, in other words she seems very unstable. After my 1st visit I waited weeks for my lab results. When I finally called I was told to schedule a follow-up based on the results of the lab work. For my follow-up appt. all 5 parking spaces in the back of the office were taken so I had to park on the street and in this area street parking is limited to 2 hours. I waited 47 minutes until I was called in for my appointment, this stressed me out considering I only had 2 hours for parking. During our appointment she seemed just as confused about the results that were given to me because they were obviously incorrect. She was flustered, cold, and unfriendly all throughout my procedure.
