Didn't give me the time of day... down played the severity of my pain... kept changing my appointment and made me wait to be seen for 45 minutes. As someone who has grown up seeing orthopedic surgeons due to a genetic condition (and having nine reconstructive surgeries) he was the worst I've ever seen. Just because my foot is in neutral, doesn't mean there isn't something wrong with it. If he would have listened he would have figured that out. I felt very frustrated because he wouldn't listen.

The absolute rudest doctor/human being I’ve ever spoke to. I contacted his office about an emergency surgery I had within his practice (he was the “on-call” ortho).. & he completely left me in tears & refused to provide any advice. Told me “he didn’t have time to hear my sob story” (verbatim). I would never recommend this low-life of a “professional” to anyone. Seems to be more interested in the money and couldn’t care less that these patients are real people with real (& very serious) injuries

Dr. Brown thought I was faking My injury and then turns around and tells me I'll be wearing the boot for a very long time. This boot end up making my situation worse .He is a waste of money and time.

Dr. Brown was very thorough and caring. I took my shy 14 year old daughter in to see him and she was very comfortable with him. His bedside manner was excellent! I would definitely recommend him.

Dr. Brown saved me from surgery! I have suffered with problems with my right foot and ankle for 20 years. Multiple doctors have treated/not treated. Boots and braces have been worn, etc. Nothing ever really helped. Went to Dr. Brown for a 2nd opinion before giving in to an extensive surgery. Once he examined, advised and taught me a very simple stretch I was able to avoid surgery. While surgery is still a possibility, with Dr. Brown it will not be a plate & screws!!

Top notch professional. Very thorough on exam and review of x-rays. Explained my problem in a way that made sense. Surgery was a success!

He was uncaring and quite rude! He took an awful set of x-rays and insinuated that my pain was due to my hair color. I am in the health care profession and was quite shocked. Will never be going back!
