    I am being followed for chronic uncontrolled Atrial Fibrillation. I saw Dr. Brown for a consultation and he had me wear an iRhythm Heart Monitor for 2 weeks to help determine if my heart rate medication dosage needed to be reduced. It has now been more than a month since the monitor was received by iRhythm and Dr. Brown has not provided any report of findings. When I followed up with him and his office I was told that he was behind in his readings and 2 weeks later he is on vacation.

    My relationship with Dr. Brown stretches over the past 15+ years. A conscientious true professional, he is not only highly expert in his specialty, but has provided guidance/advice on other health issues and concerns. He takes a personal interest in his patients' welfare and communicates well with concerned family members.

    During 20 years Dr. Brown every occasion helped me dramatically. Thus, he recognizes that I have Atrial Fibrillation (AF). Treated me initially with the best medications. Then after trend mill test, found that I have dangerous conditions that should be treated by heart ablation. 3 years I am free from AF. He has a very systematic approach to treatment. His extreme friendly attitude helped me through difficult time. In conclusion, He is an excellent doctor and I feel very lucky to have him.
