Dr. Bown and Dr. Wolfered saved my life. I had a perforated bowl and was septic due to another doctor negligence. Dr. Bown is a very caring but busy man, he answers your questions and explains things to you. I still see him regularly. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Bown did a double Hernia surgery on me. He is a excellent doctor and surgeon. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Everyone at Cabell Huntington hospital took so good of care of me including him. Thank you so much Dr. Bown. I feel so much better!!! Richard Driscoll

Dr Bown saved my husbands life. Other surgeons (even at Marshall) weren't willing to take the risk. Dr. Bown jumped right in and after 10 long hours had the job done. He's a great person and a great physician. I HIGHLY recommend him.

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.
