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
