What People Say About Dr. Lidia Brown, MD
Reply
Dr. Brown had me do a brain MRI and an EEG. My second visit with her was to go over the results. I waited over 40 minutes past my appointment. When I finally saw her, she said she did not have the EEG results (why didn't they call me to postpone?) but that I was "probably fine" because my MRI was normal. She even said something to the effect of "you don't want to have something wrong with your brain or your heart. Those are the two worst areas to have something wrong with." A few hours later, she calls me on the phone and says that my EEG is abnormal and that she wrote me a prescription for a medication that I need to start taking immediately every day twice a day! I was in complete shock. Why would anyone tell you you're probably fine without having seen the test results, then make a comment about how bad it would be to have a brain problem, and then call you on the phone to tell you something is wrong with your brain! Finding out this way was a traumatizing experience.

Great doctor and person. Takes her time and in no rush to end the visit. I would definitely recommend her to anyone that's in need of a neurologist.
