Dr Brown is fanatastic. I would have to say he really is genius when it comes to his profession. I have had all my family and friend see him and they all say the same thing. Just recently he saved me from much suffering with regards to a skin cancer. I highly recommend him ! Thank you to Dr Brown! Office staff is also great!

This has to be the best Dermatologist in the world! My husband had a wart on the tip of his finger and we visited a different dermatologist for over a year with no results because my husband's immune-compromised is a kidney transplant patient we went to dr. Brown the first time and he took the wart right off the tip of his finger and we didn't even have to go back healed upgrade one visit awesome and I've been bringing my son there for his his warts and his feet and his fingers love the doctor

Easy to schedule, friendly support staff, always an interesting experience, and he is really good to boot. Takes the time to make you feel comfortable with your treatment plan while still maintaining his appointment schedule. My previous dermatologist would be as much as 1 1/2 hours behind schedule. Not Dr Brown

I have been going to Dr James Brown a long time. And have always like him Well let me tell you I saw him today , because I have a lump on my hand. He looked at it and said I think you should see a hand surgeon. So he gave me a Doctor to call. My office call is fifty dollars .And he only charges me 25. Who does this .? Than he gives me 25 dollars out of his pocket Thank you DrBrown you made my day. Patricia Hollis

I love this Dr. and his staff. I retired to Pennsylvania some time ago and was delighted that I got an appointment on a recent trip to visit it my son. Can't compare his attention to detail.

I have been a patient of Dr. Brown's for over 35 years. I have never been disappointed in the care that he has provided for me. He is very quick to diagnose and prescribe the appropriate medications for all of my dermatological needs. I especially like the fact that he does not have you return for follow-up visits unless necessary. I would highly recommend Dr. Brown as a specialist in his field.

I have been a patient of Dr. Brown for over 35 years and would never consider seeing another dermatologist. I have recommended Dr. Brown to many members of my family and friends; they all agree he is the best. We now have three generations under the care of Dr. Brown. Dr. Brown is knowledgeable and caring. Also, he is no nonsense and is extremely honest. I completely trust Dr. Brown's course of treatment with my health and concerns. Plus, his staff is friendly, courteous, and pleasant.

Dr. James Brown is a lifesaver, twice. He took the time to speak with me and then deal with the skin cancer. He is so thorough that one time during an exam he noticed a lump on my thyroid and directed me immediately to the hospital for a fine needle biopsy. Three days later, my cancerous tumor was removed. He was very persuasive in my need to be further examined that he used his relationships to quickly facilitate the surgery by another expert and helped releive my stress. He's the best!

Dr. Brown is a no nonsense doctor who is very knowledgable in his field. Every time I have an appointment I leave feeling I received the very best diagnosis and treatment. If you're looking for a mamby pamby Doctor, this is not the guy. But if you want a dermatologist you can truly have confidence in, it's Dr. Brown. He tells it like it is.

Dr. Brown has been my Dermatologist for over 20 years and has successfully treated a variety of skin issues for me. His approach may be no-nonsense, but he takes the time to explain the issue he is treating. His assistant, Gina, is a great asset to his practice as well. It is very easy to make appointments and he can usually see you in a week or less. I recommend Dr. Brown without hesitation.
