I have been a patient of Dr. Brown for ten years. He is always professional, explains things clearly and is always personable. We have been pleased with his referrals to other physicians. I hope the practice doesn't take on too many patients making it harder to get an appointment. So far so good. He's the best.

Dr. Brown has been my primary physician for over. 10 years. I am not the easiest patient since I have dealt with long- standing medical issues but no matter, Dr Brown is a rare physician who listens carefully to his patients and truly cares. He is also not afraid to say " I don't know. He then does his best to find an answer or refers you to someone who should know. All this and a terrific sense of humor.
