    How was your appointment with Dr. Brookover?

    Nov 25, 2022
    Dr. Brookover performed initial exam (following colonoscopy) and operated on me ~ 10 days later, successfully removing a large colorectal tumor. Recovery has been fast and steady and am preparing for follow up chemo. In all visits and interactions, Dr. Brookover has been responsive and thorough, providing detailed information, patiently answering all questions, and inspiring trust and optimism. I am grateful for his surgical and communication skills and will always owe him my borrowed time. Thank you!!!
