Hold on to your wallet. I went in and asked for an annual physical, having been explicitly told that ACA policies cover this at no cost. Now I have a bill of almost $700 to pay, AFTER insurance, because they tacked on all sorts of services under their "Heartwise" program that are not covered. Never did they mention the cost. Later research shows this is a widely practiced scam. They should have been honest with me. Fool me once - see ya.

Dr. Brown has been my PCP for over ten (10) years. In my book, he's the best: caring, intelligent, skilled at diagnosis, and possesses a wonderful bedside manner. For the Santa Fe, NM region, I highly recommend he and his practice for your IM/PCP needs. Melanie M.

I'm tom kingsley i am from Texas,USA.It's been a while since I've written to thank you for my life Dr OHIKHOBO who helped me in my life. I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2016, i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, so I was thinking how can I get a solution out so that my body can be okay. One day my Aunt Rosa introduce me to Doctor OHIKHOBO having seen so many testimony online about his herbal medication to cure HERPES and gave me his email:drohikhoboherbalcente

IMS staff and providers always make me feel like my health is their top concern.

IMS is a great practice. I've seen many doctors, including those at Mayo-Rochester and IMS/Brown/et al is up there with the best.
Santa Fe, NM |
I appreciate being able to walk into IMS without an appointment and see my own doctor when I am sick.
Santa Fe, NM |
Dr. Brown is a great person and a phenomenal physician. A combination rarely found in medicine, and even more rare in New Mexico. I enjoy going to see him when needed, and have utilized the walk-in policy on many occasions. Its great to be able to see a physician in a few hours as opposed to a few weeks which has been the standard with my previous primary care docs.
Santa Fe, NM |
Dr. Brown and his staff are exceptional. I really appreciate the continuity of care - IMS is an oasis in the desert.
Santa Fe, NM |
Hands down one of the best group of providers and office staff I have ever come across. The world would be a better place if there were more individuals like Dr Brown
Santa Fe, NM |
Horrible experience. Dr. Brown was moving way too fast to provide any form of quality care. He was unengaged and ridiculously ill prepared to address lab results and didn't seem to care one way or another. With the whopping two minutes I had with him, he was about to walk out without addressing the primary reason I was there. The whole office is a huge cattle call shuffling people in and out as quickly as possible. I'll never set foot in there again. Really gross.
in Santa Fe, NM |
Horrible experience. Can't reach anybody by phone. Does not respond to emails or messages. Does not take the time. Is not prepared. Did not feel like he was taking my health concerns seriously. Billed insurance incorrectly, multiple times. Cancels last minute, reschedules, cancels again. Clearly too busy.
in Santa Fe, NM |
His office reached out to me to have me come in for Heartwise testing earlier this year. I'm glad they did! Tested hi risk in a few areas and motivated me to change my lifestyle. Quickly scheduled a session with the nutritionist and so far have lost over 40 pounds in just 6 months. All my blood tests are back to normal. Scheduling can be an issue and I've found its best just to drop by the office to schedule appointments.

Never saw Dr. Brown. Got stuck with his PA who was arrogant and acted like a Dr. Hopeless. Took 2 hours and no help at all.
in Santa Fe, NM |
You will be given to a PA rather than Dr at every opportunity. The place is run like a medicare/medicaid "mill" -- how many people can you get through the check out line in the shortest time. This office is not a place you want to be if you want personal care. Everything was rushed and pressured.
in Santa Fe. NM |
Great office, staff and care. When my wife was in hospital with heart problems, they got between the specialists and coordinated her care. She thinks they saved her life. They say if you aren't well, you don't need an appointment; just come in and they will take care of you.
in Cheyenne,Wy |
I could never get his staff to help me at all. The last straw was when I needed some testing done. Dr Brown referred me to a place in Albuquerque . I tried for two months to get a return call, they never returned any calls. Wouldn't send information to my insurance. Couldn't get records or treatment. Finally gave up and moved to another state just to be treated and have access to my health information. I don't think my health problems would have progressed if I'd had treatment .
in Colorado Springs, CO |
I have been trying to help my mother-in-law relocate to our home in Colorado and to transition her health care here. It has been an endless hassle and impossible to deal with the fact that Dr. Brown does not offer operator assistance, There are no options that help me to do what I need to do (get medical records and transfer prescription orders). I have left messages and have not received a call back.
