I was extremely satisfied with Dr Brown and his staff. They keep you informed on procedures and staff is great with people very nice. Dr. Brown is very straight forward which might come off as rude but I greatly appreciated his bluntness, that helped us know exactly what was wrong without any sugar coating. He is very knowledgeable and so is his embryologist and staff. I was very grateful for all their help and support while on this Rollercoaster. If I had to do it over I would have gone to Dr Brown sooner instead of trying different avenues. I am 30 weeks pregnant and hope to meet my baby girl soon.

GUADALUPE ELIZONDO in MCALLEN, TX – Nov 14, 2018
My experience with Dr. Brown and his staff was great. After dealing with secondary infertility for 9 years, Dr. Brown was able to help us conceive our beautiful baby girl. He is very knowledgeable in his specialty, and his staff was always very nice and informative. Dr. Brown recommended surgery, and did amazing work during my surgical procedure; four months later we were able to get pregnant! Overall, I was very satisfied with Dr. Brown. Thank you Dr. Brown and all the staff for everything!!!

I wish I could give this unprofessional so called Doctor NO STARS! He is the most arrogant, non-empathic person I have met. When dealing with women who have a hard time getting pregnant, you want a doctor to understand your frustrations and give you solutions.. well he's not for that at all. When I initially visited him, he did an ultrasound and told me "yeah you can't have kids you have severe Endometriosis " he did not introduce himself or talk to me but just say that. He then proceeded to te

Dr. Brown and his staff are the only reason we now have our bundle of joy. When first meeting with Dr. Brown we were nervous for we were not sure what to expect, or what treatment we would be needing. However, once meeting with him and his staff he was very friendly, informative, patient, understanding, and explained different solutions we can try to help us conceive. All of our questions were answered, treatments were performed with care, and we were truly supported 100 % of the time. Thank You

Very rude and insensitive doctor. My appointment was cancelled last minute and I was to blame for this. His staff is very disorganized and they have a horrible attitude. Would not recommend this doctor to anyone!
