Dr. Brown performed a blepharoplasty on me. He has a good balance between personable and professional. Answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable with the decision to have the surgery. This was done not for cosmetic reasons but to improve my vision. I am 3 weeks post op and my healing is going well as he expected. Highly recommend Dr. Brown.

Knowledgeable and concerned. Dr. Brown seems to be busy in multiple locations, so chit-chat is not what you see him for...I like him a lot! Get in. Get treated. Get out! I'm glad to have him as my new go-to specialist. I have MS. I see too many already. Great doctor!

I worked with Dr. Brown and his staff to correct a vision problem caused by droopy eyelids. This problem resulted in me having restricted peripheral vision causing me to have issues doing anything requiring normal vision. Dr. Brown has a great bedside manor and he and his staff made me feel comfortable and confident that the recommended surgery would correct my problems, which it has. I would highly recommend Dr. Brown. be consulted if you are having vision problems.

Wonderful! Catherine and Hannah are friendly and very helpful. I was impressed with how quick the appointment/procedure was. I was most impressed with Dr. Brown talking and listening to me and the fact that we walked me out of the office after each appointment.
