What People Say About Dr. Clarence Brown, MD

Of all the experiences my family has had with doctors, what we experienced with Dr. Brown was the worst - we couldn’t believe how unprofessional and negligent he was. I strongly recommend against seeing Dr. Brown especially children, or adolescents. My son developed a severe skin condition, and Dr. Brown was unprofessional and negligent in providing my son’s necessary care. Additionally, poor communication and follow-up care prompted me to call our pediatrician. Our pediatrician was concerned, and referred us to a new dermatologist. We stopped seeing Dr. Brown, and what a difference that made, night and day! The new dermatologist treated my son’s condition with utmost care and professionalism. From this experience, my son and I realized how truly terrible our experience was with Dr. Brown.

I am very disappointed with the lack of professional courtesy his office staff demonstrate. Refusing to coordinate care, condescending tones, generally unhelpful. But OVERLY helpful if they talk you into paying with cash.

The doctor and staff couldn't be nicer. They explained everything and more importantly they answered all of my questions. I recommend Dr. Brown and his staff if you need any type of facial surgery.
