    Dr. Brekken is absolutely amazing

    Dr Brekken is amazing! She’s been seeing my kids since they were toddlers. They feel very comfortable with her. Extremely nice and always listening to our questions and concerns. We never feel rushed with her. She makes sure we understand everything that’s being explained to us.

    I did not like the 45 minute wait in an exam room after appointment start time until being seen by physician. It has happened with past appointments also. My time is also valuable. Time with the physician should commence within a reasonable period after being placed in an exam room.
