    Discs are not "rotated" as you might do with tires. Either you misunderstood them or they are idiots. It's not uncommon for brake rotors to warp as they wear out and that's possibly what you're feeling when turning and braking. But then it make also be wheel bearings which can generate the same sort of vibration as brakes. I'm guessing you're not mechanically inclined enough to take on a repair like this on your own. Go back to the original mechanic, who I assume you trust, and have them do the needed work.

Did they say rotate your discs or did they say "turn" your discs. Turning means machining.
