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.

Education:
Residency: University of New Mexico School of Medicine
Medical School: Medical College of Wisconsin
Year I Started Practice: 2002
Hospitals Served: Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center

My Doctor has always taken his own time getting into the room I'm in . I've always to wait at least 15 mins to a half an hour . It is very frustrating, especially when I need to get to work . Other than that , he's been a good doctor .

Dr. Brody is an excellent physician and very knowledgeable. Plus patient. Amount of time for an appointment Is sometimes not enough. This is a VERY BUSY Legacy Clinic. Seriously understaffed with physicians and long waiting periods to get an appointment with the best doctor in the Clinic, Dr Brody. Often have to wait 2-3 Weeks unless I catch a cancellation.

I never really have a good sense for what the plan of treatment is, to include NEXT STEPS! It really helps me to know what the next steps are....ie...if this medication does work then what?

Dr. Brody is an excellent physician and this was my first visit as a patient. He was my dad's physician for years and literally saved his life and as I was dad's health care advocate I saw first hand how professional, kind and caring he was to dad. I was thrilled that I now have care like that!

There seems to be a change in the thoroughness of my checkup. I left feeling that I hadn't needed it and Dr. Brody was even wondering why I was there. I had to ask for him to listen to my heart and lungs. I wouldn't mind if he had explained that the usual checking was not needed anymore. I need more information and would like to ask whether Medicare or UHC has changed the protocols or not. Is this all because of Covid a medical personnel distancing? He didn't seem interested in me as a whole person (which I was always led to believe was important to primary care), i.e., he didn't ask me any signifcant questions unless it was to clarify things I brought up. I have only been seeing him for 2 years, and it has been a striking change from the thoroughness of my former PCP.

It is kind of strange that you ask about having called in to the Dr office but you never ask if you have contacted them through My Health and I have done that when I had no medical questions and I have always gotten answers back in a very timely manner and that is real important that I can contact the office like that

The medical assistant did a great job giving me my flu shot and drawing blood. No injection site or arm pain from the shot, which I usually have after an injection. She found a vein and withdrew blood quickly with no poking around or issues. This is the first time that has happened in years. Well done.

Wait time was too long. Doctor came back in after initial talk and said oh, you are here for a physical right? Which I was. He then spent about 5 minutes doing the exam. He seemed disorganized and uncomfortable talking with me. This was my first visit after seeing my pediatrician for years. I do notThink we are a good match going forward.

It's always a pleasure to see Dr. Brody. We talk about my care and he values my opinions and we actively talk about solutions together. He does not dictate to me but allows me to actively participate in decisions. He's a breath of fresh air when it comes to doctors really caring and listening to their patients. I would highly recommend him.

I was looking for a new Primary Care Provider as my last would not answer my communication via the my health online resource available and that is the suggested communication method suggested by Legacy. My goal was to meet with Dr. Brody to see if he would be a fit as a new PCP. Dr. Brody had reviewed my medical records prior to meeting with me and was well aware of my health and medication history. I was very impressed following my initial visit to Canby Legacy and with Dr. Brody!!
