Dr. Brown performed Lasik surgery on my daughter. The procedure was quick and painless, my daughter is thrilled with the results. Dr. Brown and his staff went above and beyond to make our experience excellent. We would highly recommend Dr. Brown to anyone!
Thank you, it was our pleasure assisting your daughter in her goals of sceptical free vision.

I went to Dr Brown because of vision issues and was not satisfied with his bedside manner.
Erika Thank you for sharing your comments with us, please know It is our goal to offer the highest level of patient care and service at all times. Dr. Brown is very passionate about diagnosing and treating each patients eye issues individually. He is guilty of focusing too much on patient history, pathology, testing, and results to determine the best course of action for each of his patients. I apologize if his reflection for your eye care wasn't as you expected. Angel Seymour-Administrator
