    Dr. Brookfield has been a wonderful doctor, and this is my first pregnancy. There's nothing that I can't ask and she also asks questions to me that I may not have thought of. I appreciate her kindness, her honesty, and all that she has done to help me and my husband prepare for our first child. Thank you.

    Dr. Brookfield said a D&C procedure would take "30 seconds" I figured that was hyperbole but did not expect to wait in the emergency room for 8 hours for a 20 minute procedure.

    Dr. Brookfiled seemed confident and knowledgable. She helped me feel good about my medical decisions and choices going forward and was clear about follow-up and plan. The genetic counselor was also excellent and one of the most kind and professional people I have encountered.
