Patient Comments (2)
in Richmond Va |
Dr. Brown is a great doctor who genuinely cares about his patients. I was lucky enough to get him through the Emergency Room and had surgery after 5 days in the hospital. He's truly an amazing doctor who I would recommend strongly to anyone.
My cancer was previously misdiagnosed and I was referred to Dr. Brown, who at the consultation appointment, began to promptly schedule my biopsy surgery because of instinct that we were dealing with cancer. He was honest with my best interest in mind and never sugar-coated cancer. He and his team work fast and provided great trust that he confidentially achieved with my wide excision surgery. His nurse Sara promptly answered my concerns over the phone and followed up. Highly recommended!
