In 2000, Mr Brooks received his Bachelor of Science (Biomedical) from Monash University. He then went on to earn his Medical and Surgical Degree in 2005 from the University of Melbourne. Following this, Chris spent time working throughout specialist hospitals in Victoria and interstate to further broaden his skills and expertise. His dedication to his academic studies and ongoing surgical research has earned Chris a number of awards.
Chris understands the importance of providing a clear treatment plan for his patients and their General Practitioners. He has found that communicating with both the patient and referring GP results in better long term results. He is happy to speak to physicians to offer pre-referral advice or answer clinical queries as required.
Understanding that patients requiring Mr Brooks care are often anxious about their health issues, he allows time in his schedule to see new patients as quickly as possible. The majority of patients are seen within three to four weeks of calling his practice, however, his calendar allows for urgent cases to be seen at short notice.
