She is amazing and saved my life. She is an incredibly talented surgeon. She uses the robot for minimal incision. She is the best. Las Vegas is very lucky to have such a great surgeon.

My mom had ovarian cancer and against my wishes went to Dr Browder. One time she went in for a chemo treatment and the meds caused my mom to seizure. They called the ambulance and Dr Browder couldn’t be bothered to even see if my mom was ok. My mom died soon after.

I would NOT recommend Dr. Browder. She is very cold and after a test I had she came in the room and said all I can offer you is a colostomy. There was no discussion as to what else could be done before such a drastic solution. There are too many good doctors available in this field, Dr. Zhang is one that I would recommend. Please look him up and read reviews for him, you would be doing yourself a favor.

DR BROWDER IS AN AMAZING SURGEON WHO GENIUNELLY CARES FOR HER PATIENTS. I RECENTLY HAD A ISSUE WITH ANOTHER SURGEON WHO WANTED TO OPEN UP MY BOYFRIEND FOR A SMALL BOWEL OBSTRUCTION AND REFUSED TO OFFER A LAPRASCOPIC PROCEDURE. I CONTACTED DR BROWDER WHO RESPONDED IMMEDIATELY AND TOOK HIM TO SURGERY WITH A 45 MIIN LAPRASCOPIC PROCEDURE TO FIX THE PROBLEM.. HOME THE NEXT DAY.. NO PAIN.AWESOME! SHE IS SWEET AND DOWN TO EARTH AND VERY EASY TO TALK TOO.. I GIVEN HER A TEN.

Twice waited 3 hours past my appointment time to see Dr. Browder. Day of surgery she was 1 1/2 hours late and didn’t tell me post-op what she found or what was done. Voice messages left are never returned. Office decor and furnishings are dated (1980s), worn, and need renovating. Sadly, my family doc who referred me said all colorectal surgeons and their offices in Vegas are similarly unresponsive and untimely due to few colorectal surgeons in this area and too many patients.

-Cg Never have i had a problem here; in fact, never felt more comfortable in an uncomfortable situation. But, its not the comfortably with doctors; its that Dr. B did everything in her power to help.

This doctor does not care about you. She is cold and dry. I wish they had a class about bedside manner that she could take because she is lacking human emotion and sympathy. I got zero information and conflicting answers from her and her staff. Here I am 6 weeks after my procedure in pain everyday and I can't even get a call back after a week of calling everyday begging to speak to only a nurse for some answers and nothing. Exam rooms are dirty with drops of blood everywhere.

I wish I could review Dr. Browder , but I could not get past the unprofessional office staff, I was asking one of the front staff about the forms and the security of the information, another front staff person holding a container of food jumped in and told me there were other doctors and I could go see them. this took a while because she was more concerned with eating than dealing with my concerns. Dr Browder had been recommended , but that front staff lost her credibility and trust
