Chicago, IL |
Fantastic! I have been seeing Dr. Brown for a couple months after a muscle tear. She is very respectful of me and she really listens. She made sure that I followed up my injury with imaging and I ended up having DVT's. She is very reassuring in getting me past this scary diagnosis.
Chicago, IL |
