Based on all the great reviews here, we scheduled an appointment with Dr Brown. After waiting for more than 30 mins, we were told that it might take another 30-45 mins. It didn't seem that there was enough interest to diagnose my Mom and staff seemed hesitant and reluctant. Even if we were paying out of pocket, I would have expected better service considering he was also accepting new patients. We eventually walked out.

Dr. Brown has been my doctor for 2 decades now. He helped me find an answer to mysterious early osteopedia diagnosis, (a vitamin deficiency) and consistently takes the time needed to go over labs, questions, etc. Truly caring and responsive. I'd also see anyone in his practice if he was booked up. They are the best!

I have been seeing Dr. Brown for over 20 years. I highly recommend him as your GP. He was very helpful with guiding me through my ablation for AFib which was successful. He is readily available to see me on short notice and I never feel rushed at the appointment.

Dr. Brown has been my GP for a number of years. I just had my annual physical yesterday and I am annually amazed at the amount of time he spends to review your labs, make recommendations and address any concerns I have. He creates a trusting and comfortable environment and gives appropriate time to his patients.

Dr. Brown is awesome! He has treated our family; children, now 39 and 43, my husband and myself since we moved to the area and the children were youngsters. He genuinely cares about his patients; not only the medical condition he may be treating at the time, but their family as well. My husband has shared with many that God and Dr. Brown's actions helped to saved his life when he had a heart attack and then open heart surgery. He is a great doctor and a caring man. We highly recommend Dr. Brown.

Dr. Brown has been my General Practitioner for 20 years. Dr. Brown is very personable and stays abreast of the latest in medical care. Dr. Brown is very methodical in his approaches, always focusing on the root cause and a long term solution. Dr. Brown provided excellent referral for my two knee replacements. His office is always accommodating when it comes to scheduling. Just today, I had a 4 pm appointment that became a conflict. I called, they moved me to 10:30.

I have been a patient with Dr. Brown for over 30 years. He is caring, compassionate, kind and professional. I trust him implicitly with my care and the care of my family. He actually takes an interest in you, engages you in conversation to make you feel more relaxed during your visit. The office staff are very patient and informative. His nurse practitioner is also very professional and easy to talk to and the lab tech's are the best.

I have been a patient of Dr. Brown for over 10 years. In that time he has shown to me that he is a true professional who is concerned about the overall health of his patients. He is not quick to prescribe a pill for everything; rather, he encourages a good diet as well as regular exercise as the foundation of good health. He shows a personal interest in his patients' healthcare needs and I would easily recommend him to anyone.

Very likely. He is very easy to deal with, yet seems to have a good grasp on a wide range of medicine. I actually look forward to the annual physical and have never had a reason to question any of his decisions.
