Review of Melanie Schano

- in Blacksburg, VA |

I had what I thought was a wart taken off my arm and she deadened the area and had it removed in less than 10 minutes. I was impressed and she was very personable. I would recommend her. She was great.

Review of Dr. Brown

- in Roanoke, VA |

First full body exam. Dr performed the exam as if she was in a hurry. All the recent literature and on-line information regarding conducting a full body exam is informative, details exam perceedures and is very instructive to examine all of the body. The exam was a skimming at best and even less for mid section. One of the things that is brought out in the literature is places that never see sunshine need to be examined because of metastasizing effects of cancer and other contributing factors.

Review of Dr. Brown

-Blacksburg |

I had never met Dr. Brown before, but immediately felt at ease, as if I'd been a patient with her for years. I was seen in an exam room before I was even able to finish the few pages of new-patient information. She was able to perform my consult and cosmetic injection procedure within the same appointment, giving me all the information I could have possibly wanted to know about the treatment/alternatives and some I wouldn't have thought to have asked, without any rush. Would recommend to anyone!

Review of Dr. Brown

- in Christiansburg, VA |

Dr. Brown is very knowledgeable and uses the products that she recommends herself. She has an excellent rapport with her patients and is very easy to talk with, giving you her time and full attention. As a woman, she has a keen understanding of women's skin care and anti-aging concerns. I trust her recommendations and will continue to see your for all my dermatological needs in the future.

Dr. Brown has been treating my acne for many years now and after trying only 2 products my acne were completely cleared within couple weeks and have been ever since. I could not be happier with my skin! She is also excellent with botox and filler injections! I would strongly recommend her to all my friends and family

Swiftly from waiting room to exam room to exam. Effective exam and questioning without feeling rushed. From prior exam, good and attentive follow up regarding any pending issues.
