I didn't get to see dr. Brown I had to see a PA, Lena Sifen.. She was great but the staff in the officeOMG, they need to do some drug testing in that office. Michael must be the clown that calls you back after leaving 3 messages starting on Friday and finally getting call back on Tuesday. Excuse.. It was a starting of weekend... Oh I'm sorry didn't mean to rush you in the call backs. Spoke to office manager Elizabeth said she would look into it.. Ok whatever.

Dr Brown is very capable, caring, professional. His entire staff along with the Rehab section were great to work with and have a great outcome with my shoulder surgery and rehab.

My ?consultation? consisted of 10 minutes of him explaining to me that I need to go to the gym and that he would not be the one to perform the surgery on me. I was shocked and offended by his lack of professionalism. He never performed any type of range of motion exercises (or laid a hand on me, period), asked about my pain levels, or inquired about activities that affect my shoulder and it?s instability. He refuted everything on my MRI report read by two doctors. Terrible bedside manner!
