    I had a para esophageal hiatal hernia. My entire stomach was in my diaphragm and twisted. He did the lap surgery with 5 incisions. I was very sick post op. However, I made a quick recovery thanks to Dr. Bown, and Prayers from church family and friends! I went back to work in 2 weeks. I have recommended him to family and friends. I Would highly recommended hi again!

    Poor bedside manner. Doesn't seem to care much about patients. After surgery had to visit e.r for dehydration from vomiting. Never heard a word from him. Nurses said he told them to let the e.r dr's care for me. I'll not go to him again nor recommend him to anyone.
