He's fabulous! He's excellent at explaining the situation and procedure and putting me, the patient at ease.
in Tolland, CT |
Dr. Brown is excellent--very knowledgeable, caring and professional. Add to that he has a very pleasant personality and is very respectful to his patients and staff who work with him.
Bristol, CT |
Very nice guy, went to several times. For some reason his staff isn't that good. Constant delays, took almost 2 weeks to get colonoscopy results, very bad experience this time around. Had an emergency when he was away, and covering dr. told me he didn't have any open times and do go to the ER.
in Avon, CT |
Dr. Brown saved my husband's life. My husband entered hospital in extreme pain. 20 hours later the hospital still didn't know what was wrong. Dr. Brown, doing rounds for his practice, saw that my husband 's MD was from the practice, checked on him, asked that a surgery room be prepared (it was Sunday). Brown recognized that my husband's colon had burst and he was dying from peritonitis. Brown did major surgery, removed 9 inches of colon, thoroughly removed dangerous peritonitis in his abdomen.
