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 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
