    What a wonderful man! Took his time explaining my options, listened to my concerns, and made me feel so comfortable. Highly recommend!

    Dr. Brown's treatment and eventual surgery for a herniated disc took me from being in constant severe pain to no pain at all. He took time to explain my condition and the procedure to remedy it. Dr. Brown was caring and kind and I felt very comfortable with him.

    My 15 year old son fractured his right leg last evening. I called today and made an appt. with Dr. Brown, he was able to see my son the same day of the call! I went in and met the staff and Dr. Brown. Everyone in the office was wonderful and caring for my son. Dr. Brown was able to put my concerns to rest and assured my son that his football career was not over so long as he followed his instructions; What a relief! Dr. Brown will most certainly continue seeing my son.. We have a new Ortho
