This woman is just plain mean. I was traumatized by my experience when she surgery on my hand. I've had hand surgery before and after by other physicians with no problems.

Outstanding hand surgeon! Serious, yet personable and fun! Dr. Brown just removed a gnarly thrombosis from my index finger, stitched me up, and sent me on my way! Santa Barbara lucky to have such a great surgeon, in my opinion!

I would never recommend this doctor to anyone. Her bedside manner is poor(awful), she doesn't listen and she repeats the information you just gave her incorrectly. She spoke to me as if I were an idiot after I explained to her several times about the pain I was experiencing in my arm. I had never left a doctor's office pissed off until I met her. I hear she is a good surgeon but because I don't trust her, I would NEVER recommend her. One visit was more than sufficient!

Simple finger surgery supposed to take 45 minuted, tool 3 1/2 hours. Five months and three surgeries, finger is drooping and will require one, probably two more surgeries to correct her surgical errors.

She is an excellent surgeon, I and a number of my friends have been treated by her. She is a tiny bit brusque, but always will answer a question with a smart simple explanation. Like all Sansum offices, booking her is always difficult.
