by Dr. Joel W. Brook
Dr. Joel Brook is a board-certified podiatrist and foot and ankle surgeon at Dallas Podiatry Works in TX.
“What is the reason you came to Dr. Brook?”
“Well, I have plantar fasciitis and a bone spur. I had been to another podiatrist for a while and was not having any success with him, so I looked up online and read some things about Dr. Brook and decided to take a chance. I came to the office on Forest Lane, and it was a great experience.”
“He suggested the surgery and I had never had surgery before and I just had a lot of trust in him. I went through it and I had absolutely no pain. I just blew through it, I healed very quickly, and I saw that my foot didn’t kill me anymore, and I was so grateful.”
“Dr. Brook, I called him, I believe it was a Thursday afternoon, and within 2 or 3 hours, he called me back and he had assembled a team of doctors. He had himself, of course, and he had another doctor to take care of some of the damage and plastic surgery (they were going to do a free flap on my foot), and also an infectious disease doctor to try to bring me through all of this.”
“How did the staff help you?”
“The staff are just remarkable on the fact that the warmth carries through to them. I’ve never had them not call me back. Really fast, really prompt. They’re always asking me, ‘Do you have any more questions?’”
“I came to Dr. Brook to help me with a neuroma, but I’ve been a patient of his for over ten years. One of the things he’s taught me, and firmly believes, is the whole ‘mind, body, and spirit’. When you work on your feet, sometimes other parts of your body are affected and he totally identified another issue that wasn’t specifically the feet. So, he worked on the whole big picture and the outcome was that I’m a different woman, because he identified it and recommended other situations for me to go to, and it worked out great.”
“I believe it was about the year 2000 when I developed neuropathy in my feet. I lost all of the feeling from the middle of my leg all the way down – had no feeling, had really big electrical shocks in my feet. My feet would swell up where I couldn’t wear shoes – I couldn’t drive. I had to use cruise control, and if I used my breaks, I’d have to sit in my car for a while. It took me, to walk a short distance, an awfully long time. He was referred by my doctor, to him, as probably being one of the best at what he does.”
The doctor has great “bedside manners” when talking to patients. Great staff and comfortable atmosphere.
The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of foot care.
I would highly recommend Dr. Brook to anyone with foot problems–especially problems that stump other podiatrists. He really is very caring and very knowledgeable.
Dr. Joel Brook and the staff were nice and helpful. Though I was a new patient, I got right in as soon as they were open in my preferred location. They diagnosed the problem and provided medicines along with a perfect gel bandage so I could keep exercising while my toes healed. My toes already hurt less and look a little better each day. If I have future issues, I will be a repeat customer. Here’s hoping I don’t, but at least I know my feet are in good hands.
I visited this office for an ingrown toe nail a few years ago. After seeing another doctor, who made it worse, he referred me to Dallas Podiatry Works. The doctor there was able to fix my problem. I’m not great with reviews, all I can tell you is that this doctor and staff will have you up and running or doing whatever it is you do in no time. You will be in great hands. You’d be a fool not to use this doctor. Now its time to visit him again for the other toe.
Been having bad ankle pains for 6 months was referred here and it was a great visit ladies in the front desk medical assistants and the Doctor were all very friendly and make you feel very comfortable.
