What People Say About Dr. John Brown, MD

Dr. Brown is nothing short of awesome. He has treated me for numerous issues to include removing a bone spur from my left shoulder and cleaning up some arthritic junk in the process. Took care of my pain issues. Dr. Brown is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and right on target with his decisions regarding his specialty. I don't have much trust in most Doctors. Dr. Brown is the exception. He is at the top of my short trust list. Highly recommend him without a question of doubt.

If I could adopt this awesome surgeon I would, however, I don't think his family would approve. Dr. Brown did a complete total shoulder replacement on my left arm in 2016 and couldn't be happier. He was professional. compassionate about my care & feelings, was always available to answer any questions I had and put me at great ease. My Physical Therapy people were also the greatest. Thanks again Dr. Brown.

I never got to see Dr. Brown, who I was told by a fellow patient was absolutely wonderful, but The Core staff at Sun City West was so rude, disrespectful, and disorganized when I tried to see Dr. Brown for an appointment that I was too upset and confused to stay. Two people had tried to tell me never to go to The Core before I went, and I ignored them. Please, all the good doctors and other staff at The Core, find another place to work or create your own place.

Dr. Brown performed an excellent surgery on my left shoulder, that I am coming back for my right one soon. I would not think of choosing anyone else for my orthopedic surgeries.

Having spent over 30 years in the Legal field, and studying medical issues, I can Highly recommend both Dr. Brown, as well as the CORE clinics as "The Medical Pain care experts in Arizona", when dealing with Pain issues and the physical, mental, and social aspects that are all, (part of the issues a patient is bound to experience when faced with medical treatment for Pain). Dr. Brown, "Listens" and I believe truly cares about the care needed for the patient's best recovery.

As a physical therapist struggling with a torn elbow tendon , working to avoid going into debt, I sought Dr. Brown's second opinion at the Core Institute in Sun City. My first orthopedic MD was dismissing my input. He was very attentive and spent a considerable amount of time discussing options and relaying his opinion. His notes reflected and were accurate of my chain of events making appropriate recommendations. I highly recommend Dr. Brown! ***** Deborah McGrath

I have seen Dr. Brown at various times for injuries to both knees for nearly 12 years. Dr. Brown has an impressive resume that is worth noting, but above that is a clear communicator that informs patients of their options and predictable outcomes. I have had 3 arthroscopic procedures performed by Dr. Brown - all with optimal results and without complication. As a "bonus," the CORE Institute office staff are highly professional, honest, and clearly act in the interest of each patient. A++

I would recommend Dr. Brown to everyone ! Personable, knowledgable, excellent listening skill, thorough explanations given ( not over your head !) and he even draws you a picture of your ailing area. Dr. Brown presents you with all levels of treatment available and assists you as needed in making an informed decision concerning your care.

Dr. John Brown is the best of the best...incredibly knowledgeable, professional, thorough, with a great bedside manner. Not to mention he's a gifted surgeon. As a very active person (trail running, tennis, mountain biking) I was ecstatic he fixed my knee (meniscus, loose cartilage bodies, arthroscopic procedure). He has my highest recommendation. Incredible staff at every level!

Dr Brown is amazing. His bedside manner is top shelf and I believe he cares about people. I was so disappointed I was not able to have him for my doctor as he only does knee reconstruction and I needed a knee replacement. He's a great guy and doctor
