Dr Brown is an outstanding dermatologist who I visited after 10 years of difficulty with many skin tones on my face. His question, “Have you ever been tested to find the cause of your problem” opened the door for blood test that indicated my undiagnosed thyroid problem.

I've seen Doctor Brown twice now and he is very knowledgeable and explains everything and takes his time with you. I'm a difficult case from Kiaser Permanente cannot figure out what is going on with my skin and they out patient me to Doctor Brown which in turn he will get to the bottom of my problem and has referred me to the NIH and this is what I was wanting Kiaser to do in the first place but they left hanging in the wind and doctor brown understands what I am going through. Thank you so much Doctor Brown for helping me get to the NIH. JR College Park MD

Dr. Brown is very thorough. I been his patient for over 5 years. As good doctors go, take work with you for his appointments tend to run behind because he takes his time with every patient. When it is my turn I really appreciate that.

Dr. Brown himself is a great doctor and very thorough. His office, however, has no regard for time and will always take you an hour later than your appointment. Very disappointing.

I saw the doctor almost two weeks ago and he referred me for blood work for possible conditions that were of concern. I have not heard from the doctor concerning the results. He also prescribed medication without regard for my insurance plan. When I went to pick up one of the prescriptions, it was not covered and would have cost me $500. When I called to request an alternative or generic, and the results of the blood work he was not available and I have not received a call back. No follow up.
