I have been seeing Dr. Brown for around 15 yrs. He is the primary reason that I have not had a heart attack and am still very active. Dr. Brown is a good listener and readily answers any questions. He has an excellent communication style. I trust Dr. Brown and his expertise implicitly.

Very arrogant and condescending to women. I felt very uncomfortable in his presence. I will never return. He is not open minded to anything but very traditional care.

Very nice doctor, really liked him after my first visit, he should get 5 stars BUT be aware YOU will be billed for seeing the doctor and YOU will be billed separate for the room in which you will see him by Lutheran Hospital. They will bill you as a hospital outpatient service not a doctor/specialist visit and a doctor visit . So instead of paying my $ 50.00 copay im billed $ 300.00 for 30 minutes visit.
