I like the variety of people I see — young and old, healthy or with a chronic disease. Everyone is at a different place.
I’m doing research on patient communication. My research focuses on how doctors talk to patients about medical crises and how patients want to be cared for when dealing with terminal illnesses.
My research has taught me that it’s important to communicate clearly and completely with patients. I want my patients to have ownership of their disease and understand it.
When a patient visits me, he or she can expect to be listened to.

More about my work
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
As of 07/23/2016, Dr. Brill has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
