    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 a patient of Dr. Brown for 27 years. He has always shown me compassion when needed and the knowledge expertise of what you would need from a family doctor. I trust him fully with any issue I may have and can leave his office feeling satisfied. When he refers me to another specialty Doctor, either good or bad, he does want to know how your experience was. I would recommend Dr. Brown to anyone who is looking for a great family doctor.

    Dr. Brown is the best! He takes time to talk with you and educate you. Dr. Brown is very thorough. He demonstrates a deep and sincere care for your health and well being. He is on top of all the latest changes in medications and treatments, and is not in the pockets of Big Pharma!

    He's been my sole GP for 26 years following my move to Cary after retiring from the Air Force. He's very personable, professional, and easy talk to. After blood tests indicated the chance of prostate cancer, he was quick to follow up with additional confirming tests and referred me to an excellent urologist who treated and resolved the cancer.

    I have seen Dr. Brown since probably the mid 1990's and have received excellent care. I get the very clear sense he actually cares about my healthcare and strives to give me great quality services. I work in a position where I deal with a variety of healthcare providers and specialties every day. This broad exposure makes me appreciate the care I get from Dr. Brown all the more.

    He is very personable and very comfortable to talk to. I would definitely recommend him for all general healthcare needs. He is very knowledgeable, takes time to explain things and never has he made me feel like he is in too big of a hurry to deal with me. I always feel I am most important and he is listening when I am in the room. This is a hard trait to find in Doctors today, but he has it mastered!
