Good with patients and with issues of the muscles and bones for me. Enjoy his energy and expertise with medicine.

Its been 3 years now and the ONLY time I ever have felt like he actually cared what was happening with me was when I was on a drug study he was heading. All other visits have made me leave feeling fair worse, emotionally! I feel like none of my concerns are taken into consideration. Dr. Brown recently took me off a drug in 3 days and sent me into severe panack attacks and deep depression. I then went to another doctor that said I should have, at least, 4 weeks of slowly reduced amounts to go off
