Powell, OH |
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. HE IS NOT ONLY A SKILLED SURGEON BUT IS INHERENTLY KIND AND CARING. HE HAS AN OUTSTANDING BEDSIDE MANNER AND A SENSE OF HUMOR UNCOMMON TO MOST SURGEONS. HE PROVIDES EXCELLENT FOLLOW- UP CARE AFTER SURGERY. HE PATIENTLY AND THOROUGHLY DESCRIBES THE SURGICAL PROCEDURES USED, THE CLINICAL FINDINGS AND THE CONTEMPLATED PROGNOSIS. HE'S THE BEST!
