What People Say About Dr. Candida Brown, MD
RecentMost Helpful

I am so glad I was referred to Dr. Brown! I had seen multiple doctors that had no clue what was going on with me. Dr. Brown spent a lot of time with me, and diagnosed me with two conditions (POTS and ADHD), and referred me to a specialist for another condition (EDS). Dr. Brown helped me find a good medication balance for symptom management, and my quality of life has improved so much since I first saw her. Dr. Brown really cares about her patients, and I would highly recommend her

Dr Brown is amazing. I didn't feel right about my daughters diagnosis and treatment plan received by Children's Hospital. So I sought another opinion. Dr Brown ran more tests, even a DNA test and ultimately she determined a different flavor of diagnosis and treatment which has changed my child's life. Highly recommended!

Dr Brown is the BEST! She promised she would not give up on my son and was the first of many Neurologists to do the appropriate testing, diagnosis and treatment. He has been seizure free for 10 years after years of many seizures each day.
