I have been seeing Dr. Brown for over 15 years and at time we have to recall items we have gone over but he has has a lot of patients ! He makes sure to ask questions he has good dr manner and writes everything down but to make sure doesn’t miss any new symptoms , {even a a primary Dr. has to refer to computer notes! I have only left him once a couple of years ago when he could not accept my method of payment, and with in 2 months I was almost hospitalized for my bi-polar! I went back to him and he has kept me stabilized! Also when ever I have had issues of not sleeping or any issue and leave him a message he is very quick to respond!!! I highly recommend him and I do not know what I will do if and when he retires!??

After seeing Dr. Brown for three years I will be leaving because he’s begun to struggle with processing new information. After sharing with him my mother was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and that I was having trouble sleeping and feeling irritable after miscarrying at 12 weeks Dr. Brown was adamant I was bipolar as well. I Had no other symptoms so I have seen two physicians since and both thought this diagnosis was made in error.

I've seen Dr Brown for over 15 years. He's a very good doctor and is a meticulous note taker. He knows what questions to ask and where to go with treatment if things begin to deteriorate or when they get better. Last year I moved 2.5 hours away from Austin, I still make the drive to see him. If I didn't have confidence in him, I wouldn't be driving 2.5 hours. Like any psychiatrist, the more information you can give him, the better the outcome. Recommended.
