Patient Comments (5)
in Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Brown is a life changer. After living in excruciating pain for 3 months and trying every medication available, surgery was my last and only option. To further complicate matters, I'm on blood thinners, so it's not something I could just do. I had to get approval from the hematologist, first. Dr. Brown worked with my Hemoc and was able to get the surgery done. Two weeks later, I am pain-free and back to work. I truly appreciate him and can't recommend him enough.

Dr Brown did a great job. He kept me well informed and made me feel safe and confident.

As we were traveling through AZ, I had an emergent need for a Colon Rectal surgeon recommended by Medtronics. We were in Phoenix and learned that there was only one surgeon in the entire state matching the parameters and it was Dr. Brown. He saw me right away and his surgery scheduler worked wonders to expedite my surgery. Dr. Brown is technically excellent, was unhurried and put our minds at ease regarding my situation. I highly recommend him and his office staff should be the Gold Standard.

the best out there very awsome he saved me i highey recommend
in New York, NY |
I trust Dr. Browns judgement 100 %, Colen cancer runs in my family. I called on the phone, had an emergency, was seen the next day and had outpatient surgery the day after that. I'm going in for my third procedure with him next month, he is a pleasure to see not like my last specialist, who was also outstanding, but uncomfortable to work with.
