I had a TERRIBLE experience and I didn't even meet Dr. Brown! I will NEVER step foot in her office, because of the complete disrespect I received from her office staff. Their behavior was absolutely unbelievable, both rude and condescending! I hung up the phone from trying to make an appointment feeling frustrated, angry, disgusted, and completely disappointed for my son. I am giving a 1 only because I have to, otherwise it would be a zero. Honestly, do NOT waste your time with this place!

NEVER AGAIN! My son has had a food allergy since birth, even while nursing him if I ate the food he would have a sever reaction. Our old allergy dr wanted him retested but we moved. We took him here to be retested to see if he may have grown out of the allergy. We were told he had but a new allergy had emerged. My husband gave our son a bite of the previous offending food thinking it was safe, it was not safe and he had a reaction to it, but the so called new allergy he has no problems with.

Dr Brown is nice! but her staff not sure Her nursing staff was very disappointing to me, she (a Nurse) was not competent, she did not show empty and took time to understand my needs and help. Basically ,she turned me down because I was not there since 2009, and refereed me to my medical primary provider. EVEN, I told her that I WAS last night in ER and I need help. This is not medical care and not professional way, especially no ethic. I will not go back there.

Dr. Brown's staff is friendly - most of the time - but not competent. I really felt like if the doctor had spent some more time actually listening and explaining it would not have taken so many appointments to figure out - plus their staff gave me the wrong test results. Overall - not compassionate and I would not go back. In fact, I will be doing the opposite of referring.

Dr. Brown was able to diagnose a condition that 3 emergency room doctors couldn't figure out.
