Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Brown "My practice is a broad Family and General Practice with an emphasis on high quality, personalized care. Patients have the option of referrals to physicians I know to be highly qualified or to physician specialists of their choice. Our emphasis is not only preventive medicine through periodical physical exams, executive physicals, advanced cholesterol testing, coronary screening, cancer screening including ultrasound, CT angiograms, genetic testing, routine gynecology, birth control, and vaccinations. We routinely care for people with diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia as well as treat injuries including lacerations, burns, sprains and strains. Dermatology services include treatment of actinic keratoses, seborrheic keratoses, basal and squamous cell cancer surgery, as well as the cosmetic treatment of varicose veins. My practice refers to specialists when necessary, but most illnesses can be treated in the office."
