Dr. Brown removed my gallbladder through my belly button. Recovery was easy and I was back to exercising within 2 weeks. He was really helpful in making my decision, scheduling was easy, and living without daily pain is amazing.

I WOULD DEFINATELY RECOMMEND DR. BROWN TO ANY PATIENT NEEDING SURGERY. HE OPERATED ON ME TWICE AND I WOULD USE HIM AGAIN IF MORE SURGERY WERE REQUIRED.
