Everyone worked hard for me to have both knee and shoulder looked at in 1 day since we were headed to Florida. Great job!

Dr. Brokaw was very informative and encouraging about my injury healing time. His assistant was very helpful and friendly.

It took a fair amount of time to wait in line and then get checked in. I am glad Dr. Brokaw got me in. I would if this could have taken place over the phone via FaceTime. Should have had a list of questions for Dr. Brokaw , yet I didn't know what the nature of the fracture was. Thankful that Dr. Brokaw had the X-ray. They took the x-ray in an Urgent care in Brownsburg, sent it to the Avon Hospital cloud. I didn't get to see it until yesterday.
