    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.

    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.

    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.
