I had an appointment with Mr. Brown for 5 months. The day before my appointment I receive written notification that his office is closed Thanksgiving week so my appointment is now rescheduled for February. The letter was poorly written, photocopied on a machine that was running out of toner, and was cut unevenly with scissors. It is a good thing I made 3 appointments with different rheumatologists so I have a backup plan. Be warned.

From wait time to talking with Dr. Brown to his staff has been a good experience......

Dr. Brown, has been seeing me for 5 years, he is an excellent doctor, with good manners, he is very concerned about his patients, he answers all questions, and helped me to start walking again, I would recommend him to anyone, he is the top of his field to me.

Very caring & offered therapy that no other doctor has ever offered. Horizontal therapy machines-a nurse put damp sponges inside sensors then she placed them on my low back. I had so pain relief after the 1st visit (8-10 visits total) The treatment does not hurt. The machine runs for 30-45 minutes, while I relaxed in a recliner. It has suction, which brings blood flow & oxygen to that area & then the electricity works on the muscles underneath. It was like a miracle for me, Lasted 6 months.

A kind and understanding Doctor. But if you are on medicaid, and have a chronic condition then you are out of luck. His staff will treat you -and make you feel- like a criminal, and like they are doing you a favor just by seeing you. And I had been seeing him for years, and always arrived and left a nervous wreck. Not because of Dr. Brown -though my complaint was voiced , but fell on deaf ears - but his staff. I received another appointment after a year -their doing- and rejected upon arrival.

He diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia before this disease was common. I also have osteoporosis. He has always been concerned about me and my pain. He believes what I tell him and doesn't judge me. He is shy, but gets to know you soon enough. My other doctors think highly of him too.

I have severe back, hip, knee, and Hans pains in my joints. Not one time did Dr. Brown take my blood he didn't even request MRI until I mentioned it. He then stated I had degenative disk disorder. After seeing him for years he sent me a letter saying I had failed my urine sample and I never have taken anything that he hadn't given me or my psychiatrist had given me. I do not consider this so called Dr to be anything but a drug dealer with a license to do so. I'm very disappointed LIVINGINPAIN!!
