Schererville, IN |
Dr. Brown has treated my son on several occasions. He has always been wonderful and catches things that other doctors miss. There is no one else I would take my children to.

Great experience n wonderful staff !

Dr Brown may be a good dr but is not compationate toward injured patients at all. The office in Munster is terrible. We were force to pay complete $$$ fees up front even though we have insurance and we're only supposed to pay copay. We were charged $178 for an aircast boot that cost $82 on Amazon. We were charged to go get the boot and the install (put on) the boot. not given a statement for what we paid at time of visit, not given any paperwork from the visit either. Office staff is rude!
in Crown Point, IN |
Dr. was condescending to myself and my child. Did not explain anything. Child was fitted with a cast that didn't fit well. Was discussing other patients while in the room with us, and even went as far as putting another child's x-ray up on our screen. Not going back. Instead of buyer beware, patient beware.
Chicago, IL |
The team was Very nice. However, I was not impressed with the Dr. He had no bed side manner came in looked at X-ray. Did not even introduce himself. Explain his thoughts on my child's situation nothing! Just looked at x ray and asked some one to cast it. And we had to wait an hour in the waiting room after paperwork. No apologies it was as of that was the norm. Hopefully, all goes well when the splint comes off and hopefully this does not happen again. In the event it does we will go elsewhere.
Hammond, IN |
Cold, argumentative, belittling to myself and my child. Gave a correct diagnosis with an incorrect treatment plan. Recommended surgery for my toddler when that should not be recommended until the age of 13. I left in tears and had to find another Dr to help us. Thankfully one was found and my child is doing much better. I would not recommend Dr Brown to anyone.
