Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Brown "As a surgeon I treat my patients how I would want to be treated by taking the extra time to listen to a patient's problems and concerns. My main goal when seeing a patient is to involve them in not only the diagnosis but also in the treatment whether or not that requires surgical intervention. I believe that if someone truly understands what the problem and solutions are, then they will be more likely to be successful with the treatment."

Ended up going to the ER with a post-op problem and he repeatedly told the ER provider he was checked out and refused to even divulge in my case. Another general surgeon was contacted and I got taken care of after almost an hour of phone calls. Ridiculous and immature behavior. Would not let him touch any of my family with a ten foot pole.

Dr. B. was the absolute best! His bedside manner is excellent. After being released from the hospital, he called me directly to make sure all was well. Name another Dr. who would do that... I feel better than I ever have and I owe a lot of that to Dr. Brown!

Dr. Brown is a very compassionate, respectful, and knowledgeable surgeon with an excellent bedside manner. I would recommend him to any of my family members or friends.

Dr. Brown is very attentive and listed to what I had to say. He did not seemed rushed when I saw him in the office. He is fellowship trained in bariatric surgery and that is important to me. My surgery went great and I love my results! No complaints
