If you just had the brakes and rotors changed I would first ensure the wheel are tight. Pulsation felt in the steering wheel when braking is usually the rotors being out of true requiring re machining or replacement, but may also be a sign of worn suspension components. When the brakes are applied worn suspension bushings, wishbone bushings or track control arm bushings may contribute to vibration in the car up on braking. Should have been caught when the brake rotors were replaced.
