in Gulfport, MS |
Dr Mark Brown found the problem with my eye that 2 other Drs could not. He is by far the best and I would highly recommend him.
in Fairhope, AL |
When I started losing vision in one eye due to Graves Disease I saw several doctors before being referred to Dr. Brown for ocular decompression surgery. All the words and tests that went before led to more questions and more tests and I was terrified. Then Dr. Brown told me I was in the right place and outlined a course of treatment; I knew I was in the right place at that moment. The coming months brought multiple surgeries and treatments and now I can see again. Trust this physician!
in Mobile, AL |
I've had two procedures performed by Dr. Brown. He has always been very professional and attentive to my needs. I'm one of those patients that ask a 1000 questions and Dr. Brown will take the time to answer every last one. I highly recommend Dr. Brown.
in Mobile, AL |
He settled on what he thought was the problem very quickly and did surgery that did not fix the issue. Poor follow up. I eventually treated my eyelid issue effectively myself by searching online. Not impressed.
in Robertsdale, AL |
I had a droopy left eyelid. After some initial test at Dr. Brown's office, he recommended eyelid surgery. Right away after surgery, my eyelids looked very symmetrical. I just had a small amount of swelling around my lids and my eyes felt a little dry for about 6 weeks but they healed up beautifully. I'm very satisfied with the way my eyes look and my vision is much improved also.
in Mobile, AL |
Great experience. Dr. Brown was able to identify the problem and provide corrective treatment of an issue I've had for years. My previous doctor was unable to resolve. I highly recommend Dr. Brown.
in Wilmer, AL |
Dr, Brown was patient and helpful with recommendations and honest about potential results. I'm very pleased with the results he achieved.
in Citronelle ala |
Dr Brown was the only doc that I have seen. That took the time to find out my issues. I have been to several eye docs in the past 3 yers. And he fixed my problem.I am so grateful for doctors like him and his staff. Thank you Dr Mark Brown.
