Ratings for Dr. David L. Brooks
I recently went in for foot surgery in the Burnaby office. I felt confident after 2 previous appointments with Dr. Brooks that surgery was the best option at this point. I found Dr. Brooks to be very patient (I didn't feel rushed when I asked questions) and knowledgable. Although, I'm still in the recovery phase of surgery, I was relieved to know that I can easily contact Dr. Brooks over the phone to address my concerns or ask questions regarding recovery until my next appointment. I would highly recommend this doctor.
I have two very painful corns on my toes. After three office visits and over 300 dollars later all he did was to scrape the top layer of dead skin. I can do that myself at home for free. It is evident that the cause of my corns is due to deformed toes and not unproper shoes or other preventable issues. I would expect a doctor to know that and do more then just remove a thin layer of skin and ask me to go home and tape my toes. This greatly affects my ability to work and it has a negative impact on the quality of my life. For the amount of money is being charged for a visit, a lot more should be done.
I have been seeing Dr. Brooks for over 3 years now and have had a good experience, he is a good doctor. I, too, struggle with the receptionist. I hate calling because I have never found her to be pleasant. She is rude but I am not sure she knows that. Dr. Brooks is a good doctor, you just have to put up with the unfriendly receptionist.
This guy is absolutely excellent. last year i injured my foot in a very strange way. I went to Emergency, then 2 trips to my local doctor (who's very good, but not a sports specialist) which were all unfortunately mis-diagnosed. I took it upon myself to see Dr. Brooks, and he took one look at HIS specialist x rays, found the broken sesamoid and rectified it with surgery. Im at 99.6% performance, but unfortunately, Im going back next week for him to diagnose my brand new foot injury (the other one this time). Going to bypass the whole family Dr. process and go straight to him... 100% confidence with this Doctor.
Dr. Brooks seems to have a wide spectrum of knowledge about feet and what could be used to help a particular foot problem, but is good at making very basic orthotics only - he hired an extremely nasty receptionist and unfortunately over time, he has lost much of his own pleasant personality. If you only need foot devices to keep your feet more comfortable for sports, etc. and don't mind rude receptionists, you would be fine there.
