in Denver, CO |
Dr.Brown was the most through, kind caring Doctor I have known. He has given my life back. He gives more than 100 percent to his patients.
in Denver, CO |
Dr. Brown's affable but sincere demeanor put me at ease from the beginning. He had reviewed my record thoroughly and, after introductions, wasted no time in asking pertinent questions in a professional manner. His communication style has always been friendly but professional and non-judgmental. In the operating room he seems organized and efficient. Best of all, my outcomes have been excellent!
