Dr. Douglas G. Brooks
Dr. Brooks was born and raised in western Pennsylvania, attended college in Lancaster and, upon graduating, moved west to Kansas City. He entered medical school in the summer of 1983 and married his wife, Chris, the following summer.
She was the driving force behind their move to Kansas as she was still in college at the time. Just prior to finishing medical school, they were blessed with the addition of their first child Caroline. That summer he started in a family-medicine residency at St. Mary’s Hospital in downtown Kansas City, MO.
By early 1988, the decision was made to close that residency. He chose to continue serving his residency at St. Joseph Medical Center in South Bend, Indiana beginning the following summer. Once he graduated from residency, the family moved back to Kansas.
He took a job in Olathe, KS and has been practicing in the general vicinity ever since. He and Chris added to their family in early 1995 with the exciting arrival of Jonathan. In 1997 they moved to the country and have lived the farm life ever since. In late 2000 the family grew again with the wonderful addition of Drew.
Dr. Brooks is a big Pittsburgh Steelers and a huge KU Basketball fan. He and his family are active members of Park Woods Orthodox Presbyterian Church. He considers the Lordship of Christ in his life to be vital to his ongoing practice of medicine. Finally, he wants to publicly thank his family for putting up with him through all the “craziness” of life in medicine.
