Only doc who could help me determine what was causing my symptoms... then, once diagnosed, he helped me adjust my lifestyle and find ways to prevent flairs. With these changes, I’ve been able to live with minimal symptoms. I’m very thankful to him.

Truly terrible. Repeatedly more than 45 minutes late (even though I made sure to have the first appointment of the day). Missed a diagnosis that forced me to be admitted for more than a week. Rushed. Never seems to care.

Dr. Brown nor his staff followed up with me after ALL my blood tests with any results. He was contacted several times by another physician regarding my appointment and trying to diagnose my problem. 9 months later still no results or answers! Highly disappointed!!

Dr Brown has always taken care to listen to me and has taken as much time as necessary to discuss the various treatment options available. As a long time patient of his I am very happy with his care.
