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

Not pleased! He didnt take the time one on one,he was to much in a hurry to go see other patients. He would ask me a question, I would answer him and few minutes later,not remember what I told him. The waiting room always packed and forever getting called to the back. Mr.Johnny seems to care more about the patients and their wellbeing, than the doctor.

Dr Brown gave me my life back! I had a total hip replacement and everything went great. His staff is so nice. I wish I would have found him 3 years ago. I had no complications and I’m pain free!! Thank you Dr Brown!!

Dr Brown is a compassionate, experienced surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic care. My mother went to another doctor first who did not treat her broken vertebrae or diagnose her broken foot. Dr Brown examined her back and foot, read the X-rays and treated her injuries. He actually listened to her about her sources of pain!

I feel like Dr. Brown's experience and education are top-notch. He is experienced in Robotic Knee Surgery. He has s mild mannerism. Very soft spoken.
