    DR. BROWN RESPONDS - (Dr. Brown, edit your response)

    I aim for 100% patient satisfaction knowing that not everyone will be completely satisfied every time.  When I started this practice with no patients over 25 years ago, we grew by word of mouth and have still relied on our satisfied patients over time - and we have many.  If for some reason someone is not satisfied with their encounter with me or our staff, I will do my best to rectify the situation.  That is my promise!

    I've been with Dr. Brown for many, many years. He is a wonderful and caring doctor. I'm a cancer survivor and he has helped me through the difficult times. His staff are also professional, helpful and caring. Wonderful place.

    Dr. Brown has been my PCP since MacGregor Family Physicians opened 25+ years ago. I have had an excellent relationship with Dr. Brown the entire time and trust him with my medical care. I credit him for detecting very early that I had a heart problem that required by-pass surgery before any heart damage was done.

    Dr. Brown has a great demeanor about him when it comes to medicine. Normally I get a little nervous about doctors. But Dr. Brown is very easy going and provides a sense of comfort.

    Over the years I have gone to Dr. Brown, he has been insightful and provided solid input about my health and where I need attention. His most successful observation was diagnosing my Prolactinoma. This illness is now under control, thanks to his diagnosis.

    Dr. Brown is a down-to-earth doctor who speaks in words and concepts the typical patient would understand. He knows the right balance between too little care and too much care, and adjusts to the needs of each individual patient.

    Spends time going over my test results with me and advising on what I should and should not be doing to maintain my health.

    I have been Dr. Brown's patient for 8 years and I find him to be an excellent phsician who is knowledgeable, honest, well informed and one who practices participatory medicine rather than paternalistic medicine. He actually converses with you and gets to know you as a person.

    Takes his time and listens. Shares current medical opinion with you before making recommendations.
