Look elsewhere, staff do not care. Tried scheduling and they had the worst attitude!

Dr. Brown and staff work with you to recommend alternative options for pain management that allow you to manage pain and not deal with the many side affects opioids can sometimes have.

I have been seeing Dr. Brown during the past year for chronic back pain, muscle spasms, and chronic diarrhea. I am very happy with the treatment results and highly recommend her services to anyone in need of pain management.
