I cannot even begin to express the gratitude we have for Dr. John Brown. He has done 5 open heart surgeries on our son beginning at 4 months old. I know many Dr.s both personally and professionally and have yet to meet a more talented or compassionate Doctor. He sets the bar so incredibly high. Dr. Brown has saved our son's life 5 times now in very difficult operations. How do you only give 5 stars to that. He is an amazing Dr. and a gift to the medical profession.

Dr. Brown is a wonderful surgeon. He did my now wifes heart surgery when she was 4, and now 21 years later he has saved her life again. Dr. Brown is very knowledgeable and explains procedures and the way the heart works very well. I would not have wanted to trust my wifes life with anyone else.
