The best oncologist HANDS DOWN. Very professional, very knowledgeable. What I love the most is that he takes the time to find out how I am doing. He truly cares.

Dr. Andrew B. Brown, Oncologist I first met Dr. Brown in March 2017 (two and a half years ago) when I was in the hospital diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal cancer that had metastasized to my liver. It was a “getting to know you” meeting. I was assigned to Dr. Brown’s care. He spent an extraordinary amount of time with me, asking about my family history and just chatting. I connected with him immediately. His personality, his demeanor and honesty said much about him. He left me feeling that I was in good hands, that he cared about me and that he was going to do his best to take care of me. I see him every two weeks and enjoy our meetings. He answers my questions honestly in language that I can understand. He has great people skills and listens attentively to what I have to say, never interrupts and makes me feel important. I trust him in choosing the right treatment for me, to keep me positive in this journey. Dr. Brown is very kind, compassionate and has a great sense of

Dr. Brown is the best of the best! He has been treating me for lung cancer since Oct. 20018. He puts a lot of thought into my options and helps me decide the best course of treatment. He makes me feel like he is treating a family member, with much care, concern and compassion. His nurse Stephanie is also amazing. She always returns my calls and answers my many questions. With her wisdom she puts my mind at ease at a very difficult time.

I met Dr. Brown back in 2014 due to a diagnosis of Breast Cancer in November 2014. I was diagnosed in November, had the surgery in December of 2014 and began chemo therapy approximately a month or so after surgery in 2015. My son is a MD in the Washington DC area and had many conversations with Dr. Brown as you can imagine. Dr. Brown was very responsive to the many questions both my son and I had about my treatment plan and prognosis. He is a VERY CARING/EMPATHETIC DOCTOR; and sincerely commiserates with his patients. I often thought that he must go home drained as his specialty in medicine can be very emotionally exhausting; especially if you have the capacity to genuinely care about your patients. He is a HUMANITARIAN first and a MD second - and seemingly a very loving father and husband (beautiful family pictures are displayed in his office and examining rooms; smiles) I cannot say enough about this wonderful human being and feel honored to have this opportunity to share!

I trust Dr. Andrew Brown 100%. Will spend any amount of time with you until you understand your condition and what he has planned for you. I like that so I have no questions when I leave his office. He listens to all that you have to say. I have told some friends and family that are unfortunate to have cancer to please ask for Dr. Andrew Brown at The Cancer Center at Saint Barnabas Medical, which also is the best hospital at all the medical needs you may have, everyone that I've come in contact with have been so very, very nice to me.
