I've retired from the Navy and I've been a patient of Dr. Brown for the past 8 years. He is caring, listens and wants the best for his patients. I believe Dr. Brown genuinely wants me to feel better and that's why I keep going back. I came in with a list of questions and he answered each one of them. and provided me with feedback. When I ran out of my list he asked if there were any other questions. Dr. Brown took the time to make sure I had all my old questions and any new ones.Thanks Dr. Brown

We recommend Dr. Brown to all of our friends. When you are in a cubby room with him, his only concern is you. He takes as much time as you need to communicate your concerns.

We moved from Oregon and needed to find a new family doctor. Through a local family friend was able to find Dr. Brown and am very happy with our decision to set up an appointment. Dr. Brown is a very intelligent and caring doctor and would highly recommend him to anyone in need.

Your office would not honor an appointment I made through the online system. I found out when I called in to check on it. Office told me new patients cannot schedule online but you obviously had it in your system since this email assumes I showed up! I stated that I was a new patient when I scheduled online. It appears that the office just wanted to postpone my appt. which they did until November! Does the doctor really want new patients? Sounds like the staff doesn't.

I was looking for a new doctor who would treat me like a person, not a number. Dr. Brown was friendly, thorough, took his time answering all my questions and even offered insights to some medical issues I hadn't thought of. I'm glad I switched doctors.

Dr Brown has been the Primary Care Physician for my wife and I for 5 years now. He and his staff are always on top of any medical conditions we have had. Any of the medical specialists he has recommended have been great too. I would recommend him to anyone needing a Primary Physician.

We were so fortunate to find Dr. Brown as our family doctor. We had just moved to Florida and didn't really know anyone to ask or give us a recommendation. We looked in the phone book and picked his name! He has been probably the best doctor we have ever had. He's very personable, very intelligent, and always answers our questions. He spends all the time we need to talk to us and will recommend a specialist if he feels we need additional care. We would highly recommend Dr. Brown.
