Dr. Brokaw is a very good Doctor. He was the first Doctor I've seen in over a year that answered all of my questions and concerns. He also directed me to people that may be able to help me with my back. His assistant [Staff Member] was also very helpful. My sincere appreciation to them both.

Dr Brokaw & [Staff Member] are the very best!! My foot originally got to be a total broken, Charcot mess because I have the 'suck it up and be bigger than the pain' mentality. This annual visit reassures me. And I love seeing Dr Brokaw and [Staff Member]!!! Thanks to this great team!
