What People Say About Dr. Joe Browder, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Dr. Browder seems to lack any kind of professional bedside manner. Even going so far as to make backhanded comments about my appearance. With the exception of the nurse practitioner (who was very helpful and kind), every employee that I came in contact with was either rude or apathetic. Overall it was a bad experience. I will not go back and would not recommend.

Got to see Dr. Browder 2 times each to shame & accuse me of wrong doing & abusing my mess that the NP's I was seeing never mentioned! NP tried to get me to break the rules, Jamie to be exact! Nasty, nasty unhappy woman! Should never be an employee in this sort of field! Hates people, obviously! Disrespectful nurses here! Very into humiliation! Dr. Browder doesn't care how employees treat patients! If you go here, state your problem once, have proof, take what they give you, never ever complain.

I was referred to Dr Browder for an injection by my orthopedic. I have been struggling with pain for over 4 years now. Initially I was very excited that I would finally get the answers I have been looking for. On my third visit was finally able to see the doctor. Was told that there is nothing wrong and he could not help. Also told me I could not get any pain meds that I never asked for. Started to cry as the doctor quickly exited the room. Nurse stayed behind to comfort me. Would not recommend
