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.
in Adelphi, MD |
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.
