What People Say About Dr. David Brown, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I have found Dr. Brown to be a quiet guy who is a highly intelligent and knowledgable individual who is very science based and detail oriented during the diagnosis process and follow-up care. He DOES listen, as well as respond during a visit, despite his consistent use of a laptop pretty much throughout the visit which, can leave one feeling that he is not focused on the patient. Far from true. He multi-tasks and overlaps well. Have been a patient for 7 years and have zero complaints.

Dr. Brown “heard” me when I described my symptoms and directed me in the right path.

I have to agree with others who feel this Doctor just doesn't seem to care about his patients. Four appointments and I spent the whole time talking to the wall or his hands as he typed away on his laptop which seemed surgically attached to him at all times. He was nice and pleasant to deal with but there was not that sense that he really had my best interest at heart, threw a diagnosis at me and threw me on Cymbalta which is just awful to get off of. His staff is awesome however.

Patients get 15 minutes & if recently diagnosed - Obviously You Have Questions. Dr. Brown deemed myself A POOR HISTORIAN - Meaning I am incoherent, ill, drugged, go off on tangents, when asked questions. There is nothing further from the truth, I am able to list each ailment, month & year chronologically! Does he care about any history? Absolutely NOT, in what got You There! Thank God My PCP describes myself, as a pleasant woman, 26 years history!

Dr. Brown has NO bed side manner. He does not care about symptoms. He simply dismisses you.

I think Dr Brown is a good Dr. overall and I am no longer a fan or a person who lays much trust in Drs or thinks much of the medical establishment. He is more current in his field or knowledge than many local Drs seem to be. It takes awhile to get used to his manner of relating to patients, however, I disagree with the other reviewer.I think Dr. Brown is a caring and kind person , but his expertise is not in communications and it takes awhile to see this. He is a good Dr. . Give him a chance

Lack of respect for patient in regards to overall treatment. He does not put patient at ease, is not friendly and is judgmental. He does not listen and is condensending.
