Dr Brown saved my wife's life. He along with Dr. Samstein, Dr Haluzun and their respective staffs. When dealing with life threatening situations of a loved one, you tend to be overprotective - which you should be. I also learned to trust the process. They know what they are doing and they are hands down the best at what they do - this includes Dr. Brown. My wife is alive today for this reason - and thriving.
