Patient Comments (3)
in Michigan City, IN |
Dr Browne and his staff are great. Everyone is friendly and professional. Dr Browne always takes the time to sit and talk with you and involves you in the decision making instead of just telling you what needs to be done. The way his office staff as well as the hospital surgical staff interact with him shows you that he has earned a high level of respect from them. I highly recommend Dr Browne for your general surgery needs.
