This was a telemedicine visit with Megan Canady, PA-C discussing the steps (including colonoscopy and endoscopy) needed to find why I'm anemic. Ms. Canady took the time to explain in detail what the procedures were looking for. I have been a patient of Dr. Brown's for 11 years. My wife and daughter are also patients.

Dr Brown and his office staff are great. Dr Brown is very thorough. He listens to the concerns of his patient and does not rush you. His supplements have been very good for my digestive system.

This was my 3rd time to visit Dr. Kenneth Brown's practice and my 3rd colonoscopy. All three times have been amazing experiences. Always professional and always on time. When they say your procedure is going to start, that are spot on. I always feel informed and trust his recommendations. Highly recommend Dr. Brown, your colon will appreciate it!

Best GI doctor I have ever had! Ulcerative Colitis is my problem. Dr. Brown knows his stuff and he has the credentials to prove it. He's personable and friendly; as busy as he is he takes as much time for me as I need when I see him. I trust his knowledge completely so I am absolutely comfortable with his treatments and other recommendations. That kind of trust is a real stress reliever. When I moved here to North Texas in 2011 I picked him at random. How lucky was that?!? As long as he's around I won't see anyone else.
