My daughter was referred to Dr Brown by her pediatrician. During 1st visit he had to wick her ear. He was very rough and didn't care if he caused her more pain. He said her issues were caused from allergies and recommened allergy testing. We had to go back 4 wks later. Before even checking her he asked if I was going to have allergy testing done. I said no, I don't feel it's necessary right now. His reply.... Fine, it will kill her. You just shortened her life! Horrible Dr!! Don't use!!!

DO NOT see Dr. Brown I went to see him for an ear problem immediately recommended allergy testing, sinius surgery,and also septoplasty surgery. Said he could just tell by looking at me that was the problem my allergies I have never had allergy problems. He is very arrogant and will not listen to what the patient will have to say he will interuppt you and tell you that your pretty much ignorant. After listening to him boast about how good he was at what he does I left and never went back!!! LIAR!

As soon as I got into his examining room Dr. Brown insisted on doing a Hearing exam and even though there is nothing wrong with my hearing as shown by his tests he made me an appointment with the hearing center! Also immediately recommended sinus surgery without even offering other alternatives. I had been having headaches and I was desperate so I let him do it. I should have listened to my instincts because it was terribly painful and did nothing for my headaches. Just an all around bad experie

Extremely long wait time, poor listening skills, quick to write a prescription so that he does not have to listen to you or even vaguely address your concerns as a patient. The exact opposite of interactive/patient involved care. From my vast experience in the medical field - 30+ years, this was just poor care all around. Never again! He totally ignored me in every way possible. I am not sure an assessment took place in the 5 minute exam. such a waste of my copay.
