Sometimes Dr. Brooks seems like he is not really listening. He always has a blank look like he is not engaged.

Dr Brooks is an exceptional physician; caring knowledgeable professional sensitive
I have seen lots of Stanford Doctors in past 3 weeks, some good a few really bad, but Dr Brooks took the time, showed concern and understood my medical problem instead of saying its a "organ" problem not my specialty go find another doctor. Dr Brook is one of the best dr i gave ever seen.
Doctor is very patient and detail oriented. He always listen to my concerns very carefully and went through the possible solutions with me in detail. He explained the medical terms nicely so that I can understand. I feel that during the interactions he took the patient's feeling into consideration very much and that make the entire experience very smooth. Great doctor.
Dr. Brooks genuine care and concern for me makes him the best primary care doctor I have ever had in my adult life. I make my appointments with him every 3 months because of the confidence I have in him!
I can not say enough about doctor brooks. every doctor should be this wonderful. I honestly have never had a doctor who cares like he does. I feel very at ease and almost like family when I am with him
Dr. Brooks is a very skillful active listener. He demonstrates - by his engaged conversation - that he cares and is opened to not only hearing the patient's concern but arriving at decisions with mutual involvement by the patient.
Very good.

Dr. Edward Brooks is the most attentive doctor I have ever seen. He listens to me and pays attention to what I have to say. This makes me feel good to have a physician that really cares about me and keeping me healthy. I don't dread going to the doctor like I did in the past at my old clinic.
Dr. Brooks is an extremely caring dr. who's concerned about my medical needs. I can honestly say that if it wasn't for him & his care I wouldn't be alive.

Thus, allowing me to be proactive in designing the best treatment regimen. He's profoundly compassionate and adequately knowledgeable.

The very good comments are referring to the doctor. The fair comment is referring to the PA that seemed overwhelmed with the duties he was assigned.

I have been a patient of Dr. Edward Brooks for over ten years. I would follow him anywhere. I trust him entirely, he's great!
My experience with Dr. Edward Brooks was leaps and bounds above what myexpectations going into it were. He was very professional and courteous, yet friendly and approachable. He definitely took the time to listen to my concerns and to talk through the appointment. Once he learned that I am a medical professional as well (veterinarian and pathologist), the conversation was taken to a level that I felt treated as a professional colleague, which I highly respect him doing. He definitely posed his point of view and recommendations, but took into consideration my input as part of the overall decision-making process. Overall, this was a very, very positive experience and a refreshing one. I feel that often medical providers treat you as a number, whereas this time I felt treated as an individual. I really appreciated that. I would most certainly recommend Dr. Edward Brooks to others.
Dr. Brooks ia amazing. His follow up to my visit included a call on Memorial Day to insure I was well.
