Dr. Brown Says:

I aim for 100% patient satisfaction knowing that not everyone will be completely satisfied every time.  When I started this practice with no patients over 25 years ago, we grew by word of mouth and have still relied on our satisfied patients over time - and we have many.  If for some reason someone is not satisfied with their encounter with me or our staff, I will do my best to rectify the situation.  That is my promise!

Our yearly appointment is never rushed, always informative and detailed. I have been in his care over 30 years. All of my other physicians are from his recommendations. I trust him totally. He shares my concerns about not being over medicated.

I have been seeing Dr Brown for over 20 years and I wouldn't ever think of going elsewhere. He is always on-schedule, knows my history - seems memorized), and takes the time I need to understand what's going on. He is attentive, caring, compassionate, and very skilled. I recommend him highly.
