Stay away from this butcher, he charged me for a "crystal lens" installed a "restore lens" then bursted the capsule in my right eye, then told me it was glaucoma, gave me a pair of "free" glasses and sent me on my way. He almost completely ruined my right eye and made me pay for a "restore lens" that he had to remove.

Dr. Brown gave me perfect sight by performing Lasik. I am so pleased with the results of my procedure and would recommend Dr. Brown as a provider.

Prior to my arrival for my appointment I called the office to see what my out of pocket expenses would be and was told it would be a copay of $10.00. Once there the cost was raised to $49.00. A laser was going to be used to reduce the possibility of Glaucoma. I asked what out of pocket would be. Here is Dr. Brown's repose You shut up I know what I am doing. At which point I walked out of the office. This Doctor is the most unprofessional I have ever encountered. Beware!
