About Me:

Before coming to Medicine, I spent 13 years working in social services, including the elderly, homeless, LGBTQ and those with HIV. This has profoundly influenced my approach to patient care. I believe in spending time with my patients, and those involved with their care, to understand who they are and what matters most to them. Together we can then balance their values with medical evidence and expert opinions. Outside of work, I am actively involved in my sons' school and in our Jewish community. I believe in lifelong learning, including medicine and science in general. I also study Jewish ethics and have a soft spot for musical theater, film and science fiction.

All staff friendly and made me feel they cared about my health

Receptionist on the phone when I went to check in and my presence was not acknowledged so after standing there for several minutes I took a seat and waited to br called up. As usual the questions asked of me had already been answered on my E checkin.

Has to wait over 1 hr 20 mins to see Dr. Less than 2 mins. All I wanted was a referral but was told it was required to see Dr before I could get a referral (if I could even get one). Was told part of the reason was I needed to have blood drawn/lab work done. With Dr being so late don't know why the blood draw wasn't taken during the wait. Instead it took another 20 mins to get blood drawn. Not once during my wait was I told the Dr was running late and asked if I had the time or did I need to reschedule. Was never told a reason for having to wait so long. I respect the Dr enough to know his time is valuable and why I arrive early. I would expect the same respect of my time. Want to change my "primary provider" closer to home but keep being told the office down the street from me is short on Dr's and not taking any new patients. I think Legecy/UHC should be able to handle new patients before taking our money for monthly insurance premiums.

Very complete attention to me and my questions and test results.

  Jun 26, 2023
Dr Brody my PCP and his MA Marissa, are the best health care I've ever had in years. He calls it straight, no frills, and that's exactly what I need to hear.

  Jun 20, 2023
Listens. Then leaves to gather information regarding answer. Then, provides his conclusion in terms understandable to average person.

  Jun 16, 2023
Dr. Brody was efficient, caring, and listened to all my questions. He ordered tests that I needed and sent a prescription to a pharmacy that would provide me with a 90 day supply. I'm so glad he is my doctor.

  Jun 14, 2023
Very pleasant staff.

  Jun 13, 2023
I appreciate the Dr listening to my concerns, even though he was pretty sure I was wrong. I highly appreciated that he ordered tests showing I was incorrect so I could put my mind at ease.

  May 30, 2023
Very good provider

  May 25, 2023
I have always had a good experience with your office dr Brody isn't always on time but he does a good job he always helps me and I have never been late for my pick up time

  May 22, 2023
Very caring nurses and staff. Dr. Brody listens to my concerns.

  May 16, 2023
I enjoy my visits with Dr. Brody. He is always familiar with my past health records and current concerns. He is clearly one of the better doctors that I have seen in the past few years.

  May 15, 2023
Very good

  May 12, 2023
Just very frustrating that it took almost three months for this appointment

  May 4, 2023
My doctor is a good listener and also has a good sense of humor. He explains things well.

  May 4, 2023
Dr. Brody was very thorough and listened to what I had to say. Highly recommend him!

  May 1, 2023
The whole office staff are great. I feel very special. Dr. Brody is the best dr. I have had in the 14 yrs. I been here.

  Mar 10, 2023

Dr. Brody is a remarkable doctor. He may limp a little but he walks on water.

  Mar 1, 2023
Very kind/helped me along.

All good!

  Feb 28, 2023
Best dr. I have ever had!!

  Feb 21, 2023
Waited four months for apptmt w/new provider. The reception staff was disdainful & condescending. Refusing to provide followup apptmt w/in timeline recommended by dr. She said it "wasnt a priority" since she could not see the notes from the apptmt. The provider seemed distracted and rushed. The MA was wonderful & caring.

  Feb 14, 2023
Receptionist was rude after I asked if I could attend my appointment without a mask. Ben is a nice enough guy but he seems aloof to individual patient needs. He didn't have my medical records and apparently didn't review them. He Intended to make the same mistakes with improper labs he made during my last physical until I reminded him of the previous errors. Ben gives the impression that he is less concerned about the individual patient than he is about pushing people through. As a human being, I like Ben. As a Dr, I don't have confidence in him.

  Feb 10, 2023
Dr. Brody and his staff make me feel like I am his only patient. They are always through, have time to answer your questions and caring.

  Feb 3, 2023
Maybe more time with Dr.

  Feb 2, 2023
This is a very comfortable environment, and the care received is very competant.

  Feb 1, 2023
Not enough help -

  Feb 1, 2023
Very good

  Jan 31, 2023
Best primary care doctor I have had.

  Jan 31, 2023
Dr. Brody was very easy to talk to and answered my questions professionally.

  Jan 26, 2023
I've never had a bad experience at this office ! They are all great at what they do , and very nice on top of that . Dr. Brody is one in a million so glad we have him . I started with him my hubby followed now his mom is coming soon .

  Jan 25, 2023
Dr. Brody has been my doctor for many years. He is knowledgeable. For example, I had questions about my health and a discussion whether I needed a POLST. Dr. Brody, gave me all of the information I needed to make a decision, including why I would or would not need a POLST at this point in my life. He also discussed data backing my decision. As far as the medical part - cholesterol/A1C, again, a thorough discussion backed by research data. So, I do trust him.

  Jan 24, 2023
Oh my! Doctor requested a blood draw; I waited a full 15 min.'s in a closed room. Not Happy about that. I opened door and requested what is going On! My Doctor walked by; hay! That's not good. His nurse came running w/feeling she had to get another patient in a room. No! Finish with me first -I thought. Wasn't happy at All !

  Dec 15, 2022
First visit. Changed insurance and had to establish a new doctor. Not 100% sure on this doctors bed side manner. Seemed a little short. I have another appointment scheduled in a couple months so we'll see how his attitude is.

  Dec 8, 2022
My PCP was attentive as always, informative and to the point. The assistant Marissa asked me about all my meds and was very professional taking my vitals. Great team.

  Dec 7, 2022
Dr. Brody listened carefully regarding my insomnia problem and provided positive suggestions. Marisa was very professional and pleasant. Likewise, the front desk lady was curteous and pleasant.

  Dec 7, 2022
Every one was imformative and pleasant.

  Dec 1, 2022
I waited 55 minutes beyond my appt time then waited 25 more in the room for dr body. At check in I Should of been informed he was running over an hr behind to decide if I could stay. Then blood draw was a 15 minute wait in my room and never saw anyone so I left. A 15 minute appt took over an hr and a half which is ridiculous I am looking for a new primary dr as we speak. Very unprofessional practice of leaving people waiting to that degree

  Nov 29, 2022
Dr Brody is the best overall PCP I've had as adult. He always listens, explains in a way I have an accurate comprehension and makes me feel valued as a partner in my own healthcare. Marissa his MA is very professional and competent in updating my meds and asking the questions my PCP needs to better assess why I'm there. I couldn't be in better hands.

  Nov 23, 2022
Dr. Brody is my doctor, like him very much. He takes all the time necessary to explain medical issues and why he recomends a certain medication or procedure etc.

  Nov 17, 2022
Very helpful and good recommendations and referrals.

  Nov 16, 2022
Site was neat and clean, receptionist was alert ,friend, and helpful

Not sure why I needed to sign a medicine contract after nearly 11 months of being on the medication. What changed? Felt like suddenly I was under suspicion. Would have been better to have done it when I first started. One or more terms of the contract are overly broad, and/or vague. I get why providers feel 5hw need to have them, but they make a lot of ADHD patients feel like they aren't trusted. Trust Is a two way street: If I don't feel like my doctor trusts me, I'm not going to trust them. After my first few visits with De. Brody it no longer seems like he's listening to me as much. He makes a diagnosis really quickly, yet is too willing to agree with me if I don't initially agree with it and/or the proposed course of action. I think this is probably at least in part to the pressures of our horrible medical system in this country. Doctors are under pressure to see too many patients a day and thus can't spend enough time with each patient. As someone with anxiety sometimes I need a little time ro feel comfortable asking about an issue. I think Dr. Brody is probably much better than most doctors and it's likely not his fault, but it still makes me less likely to seek care.

  Nov 15, 2022
Dr. Brody is awesome Dr. Efficient.

  Nov 14, 2022
All good. Like everyone that is the team. Thank you for being a wonderful team.

  Nov 9, 2022
Doc is extremely thorough and knowledgeable, always keeping up and monitoring me as a patient .I appreciate that

  Nov 9, 2022
Have a nice day!

  Nov 7, 2022
This was a bad experience all around and it began the moment I walked in, when I was handed paperwork that I physically could not complete and no assistance was even offered.

  Nov 4, 2022
Original appt was set a 2 months out, was asked about being put on a on call list. Got in for physical within a couple of weeks. Benefit for both parties!One of the things I like about Doc Brody is he's not afraid of telling you how it is.

  Nov 2, 2022
I love Dr Brody. He gives me full attention and spends the time needed with me to answer my questions. I thank Marisa for her comfort and helping me after my procedure yesterday. She made me feel important and showed she cared about me.

  Oct 31, 2022
Always treated with courtesy, & respect, careful listening.

  Oct 28, 2022
All of the staff were extremely helpful.

  Oct 25, 2022
The last few yearly check ups, Dr Brody took time to visit and talk a bit. This visit was fast and quick. I had questions he answered but he didn't solicit any questions. That said, when I email questions, I do get quick responses.

  Oct 25, 2022
Provider listen carefully to my concerns and then we discuss them.

  Oct 20, 2022
The Dr is kind and caring . However the ladies who check u in or schedule we're very short to put it mildly . I was too sick to fight them. I needed an afternoon appointment and I was offered 750 am 3 times .Too early. She just assumed I can't get up. I do get up early but my health problems make morning the worst .The women were down right confrontational I might not be so weak next time to stand up for myself!

  Oct 17, 2022
Dr. Brody has been one of my favorite doctors. He is kind, he listens, and I believe he trusts me as much as I trust him.

  Oct 11, 2022
Very Slow on service once in room; Doctor had already came and left. I was waiting for a flu shot! Doctor nurse had to be on phone! So another nurse came once I opened door to say; Hello! Waiting for a flu shot. She helped me out. Wasn't happy w/Doctor nurse being on phone & not finishing caring for me!

  Oct 11, 2022
I have only great words for my provider. He takes excellent care of me

  Oct 10, 2022
Love the guy he is great

  Oct 6, 2022
Came in to get a prescription changed and it took almost 2 hours. Did not need to know the history of the medications. Long wait to get blood drawn.

  Oct 3, 2022
Most of my check up or routine care done by verbal conversation. Hardly by physical exam.
