Had a follow-up visit for some issues I’m having related to my UC. Saw Megan in office and they got me in the same week for an endoscopy and colonoscopy with Dr. Brown. Everyone always takes time to listen to concerns/symptoms/issues and try to figure out what’s causing it, not just mask it with meds. I’ve been a patient for 10 years and everyone on Dr. Brown’s team is fantastic. I always recommend him to anyone having GI issues.

I had a colonoscopy on Friday. I was treated well by a very friendly staff. My procedure was done on time and I can't imagine the whole process could have gone any better. I have been a patient of Dr. Brown's for over seven years and I very much like him.
