Saw someone else within the ortho-group who decided I should see Dr Brown instead. So they squeezed me in. I have to take that into account for my sitting in the waiting area to see him for over two hours. I didn't inquire of the wait time, but staff wasn't proactive on the matter either. If I'd had an appointment, I'm hoping I would have been seen in a timely manner. The actual exam room is dreadfully cold. All that said, Dr Brown was fabulous. He communicates well at my level.

As a retired nurse, I was definite about wanting Fondren Orthopedics when my knee pain worsened. I was referred to Dr Brown and thought his reasoning for my treatment plan fit with my age and activity level. A year later I had minor knee surgery by him from which I recovered easily due to I think his plan to strengthen the surrounding muscles first.

Dr Brown has been taking care of me for yrs. My knees are bad. He has always been very nice answered any questions I might have. He gives me shots in knees. I don't mind it at all, believe me some Dr's are not so talented at giving steroid shots! When I need to see another specialist he recommend someone. I think he is a wonderful doctor.i highly recommend him.
