Dr Brown has been a tremendous help to me. With his help both my anxiety and chronic pain is under control. He has also helped me with communication skills. His office staff, Rosa, is excellent at her job. I also enjoy seeing his therapy dog, Rex, on every visit. I am very satisfied to be under his care.

I saw him for 1 1/2 years. visits were fine at first then it became hard to make an appt. I was called several time to reschedule . wait time because at least 2 hr waits to be seen. I waited one time 3 hrs and then he had the nerve to ask me to wait longer because his therapy dog had to pee! I never got the time I paid for. Then I went to my last appt. and was told I had a credit and only to receive a bill later for $75. He wants to take all this time off and see patients at his convenience
