What People Say About Dr. Samira Brown, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

My children and I love Dr. Brown. Her knowledge base and bed side manner are stellar. My son, who has a plethora of allergies often feels at ease in her care and truly feels that she cares about his health and well-being and he is only eight. I couldn't see him in the care of any other pediatrician. My 18 y/o loves Dr. Brown as well and is not looking forward to seeing a general practitioner. Her comfort level with Dr. Brown is amazing for a teenage girl.

Dr. Brown has been our pediatrician since my son was born. She is absolutely wonderful. She is always on point in her diagnosis, responds promptly to all emails/calls, and has a warm bedside manner. We also rarely wait longer than 30 minutes for appointments. My son had periorbital cellulitis, which often requires hospitalization, but Dr. Brown was able to treat him as an outpatient. I would recommend her to anyone!
