    in Sarasota, FL |
    Dr. Brown did all types of tests, instead of doing a bone biopsy first to determine if I had cancer. At first, he said I had a 50/50 chance that I had cancer. Next, with my sister present, he said I did NOT have cancer, but he thought it was a genetic disease, which is one of his specialties. Next, after 2 cat scans for the genetic disease, he called and said that the bone biopsy, after all, did show cancer. What a seesaw ride with him! He just likes unnecessary tests & CT Scans.
