Dr Brokaw is among one of the the best doctors I've ever seen. He explained things extremely well and even walked me through the MRI images. He answered questions thoughtfully and helpfully. I felt he gave me his full attention and never acted in a rush. I'm so glad I came to Ortho Indy. The staff from check-in, to xray, to check-out were excellent and efficient.
