Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Brown "Working as a gastroenterologist for over 25 years, I have learned that each patient must be taken as a unique individual with specific concerns and expectations.  I believe that I should listen to my patients as they present what is troubling them.  I take seriously my role in outlining the best diagnostic and treatment options for each patient.  I encourage each patient to be actively involved in this process and will seek to provide guidance through the complicated maze of modern healthcare.  I make it a goal to educate my patients regarding proven ways to improve their health.  I strive to give each patient the same kind of careful attention that I would want for myself or a member of my family."
