Patient Comments (2)
Dr. Brown is one of the finest physicians I have ever encountered. He takes the time to explain things to his patients and has a wonderful bedside manner and sense of humor.
Thanks so much! We try very hard to provide a great experience for our patients and the comments are greatly appreciated!

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.
This is a problem with the clinic being hospital based. We are working on a solution to provide a single bill. We have dealt with this issue on an individual basis when it arises.
