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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

He always shows concern about any questions or concerns that we have, he has a great MA so it makes going to the Dr not such a bad thing. He keeps tabs on me about any problems the medications I am taking that could cause me problems because of the side effect of them.

The Canby office is as good as the Tualatin office is bad. As a new patient I was told it would take 4 weeks for them to register them and when I called after six weeks, they said it would be 8 more weeks. Canby registered me on the first call.

Each of my appointments with Dr. Brody have been very good experiences. Dr. Brody goes above and beyond. He really discusses issues relating to my visit and when necessary my overall healthcare. When my husband is eligible for Medicare he will be following with Dr. Brody (for all of the questions asked in the survey.)

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.
