in El Cajon, CA |
Dr. Brown is an extremely good listener, exceptionally caring and very good at diagnosing. I think he has all the qualities I'm looking for in a doctor. I have been seeing him for several years and I'm highly satisfied.
in San Diego |
Terrible. The office forgot to send the new patient paper work and lost my information. Then I saw a Nurse Practitioner who had only been with that office a short while. She had to call the doctor several times as she didn't know what to do. She then recommended several unnecessary tests, all which have to be done at their office (self referring). I called with questions and was only permitted to speak to an MA who should NOT be giving medical advice. She was rude and clueless.
