If you are looking for a highly professional, intelligent, well informed surgeon who will treat you as a human being, call Dr. Browning. He performed the robotic colectomy on my 73-year old mother and it was superior. Thank you, doctor Browning!

Such a great doctor. He basically gave my life back. He is vary kind, patient and explains everything very well by drawing diagrams with pen and paper. I had a fistulotomy surgery with him just recently.
