Review of Dr. Brown

-Kenansville NC |

I had chairi malformation surgery done by Dr.Brown. I had never heard of this until my regular doctor sent me for an MRI It was not migraines. It was a very serious problem that turned my world upside down knowing I had two young children, my heart sink. Just a few days later I was sitting in Dr. Browns office needing brain surgery. He was wonderful. He took time to explain what was happening in my head. As tears fell he was very compassion and caring. I would recommend him 100 times over.

Review of Dr. Melin

- in Whiteville NC |

Didn't see him on half the visits. He has his PA do everything. Very blunt and couldn't be bothered once surgery was not recommended. OFFICE STAFF IS BY FAR THE WORST I HAVE EVER DEALT WITH!!! Expect to sit in waiting room forever! Literally 30 min. to 2 hours past your appointment time.

Review of Dr. Brown

-Wilmington NC |

Today I had an appointment to see Dr. Brown. After waiting over an hour I went to the front desk and was told that I would be called in shortly. To make a long story short, after getting into an examination room I continued to wait. Having been in the office for over an hour and a half I left. When I confronted the front to tell them they should have let patients know about the delay so they could reschedule they blamed the drs.

Review of Dr. Brown

- in Swansboro NC. |

I recently had back surgery done by Dr. Brown. I had been suffering from back pain for years. From our first consultation through surgery and post op I found him to be very clear in his diagnosis , plan and recovery strategy.. He was very professional and had great bedside manners. I consider him an excellent neurosurgeon. I told him I hadn't felt this good in 40 years, and I meant it. I would recommend him to anyone.. Thank you Dr. Brown.. Dan Shipko from Swansboro ,NC..

Dr. Brown did several neck surgeries and later a lower back surgery for my Mom. She thinks he is the best around. She was able to golf and ski again. I wouldn't think of going to anyone else!

Review of Dr. Melin

- in Wilmington, NC |

Very noncaring attitude toward patients. Seems like referrals are a waste of time. Very arrogant to patient and family. Would not recommend him to anyone. Staff preoccupied and don't address patients when they arrive. Interrupts you when you try to ask questions about your condition and walks out leaving you sitting for 15 minutes when a staff members tells you he's done and you can go, not even so much as have a good day when you leave.

Review of Dr. Melin

Arrogant, obnoxious. Unless you are writhing in pain and ripe for surgery he wants nothing to do with you! In fact he had the nerve to ask why I was there...implying I was wasting his time. I was referred to him to discuss all of my possible options. I did not ask to see "God" that day. When he ruled out surgery as an option, I was summarily dismissed with the comment "You know, this is not how I make my living!" Unless I am mistaken, he was paid for this very short visit. Compassion = "0"

Review of Dr. Brown

-Kenansville, NC |

I have degenerative disc disease. Twelve years ago I was all but bed ridden at 34 years old. I thank God every day that I found Dr. Brown. I had a spinal fusion on my lower spine L4-L5 and got my life back. A couple of years ago my disc had degenerated in my cervical spine area. Dr. Brown did my second spinal fusion. When I went into surgery I was literally in screaming pain. After surgery and still 2 years later no meds and no pain. Dr. Brown is the BEST NEUROSURGEON on the East Coast!
