Patient Comments (5)

Went to see her for trouble with my vision. She did 5 tests over and over. Her diagnostic: "your case is a mystery." She was very unprofessional and cold. Not very happy with her. Therefore, I'm not going back to her ever!!

Doctor Brown is amazing! She is knowledgeable, kind, and always gives the best recommendation to her patients. She is the person to go to for all cosmetic and medical needs not only in regards to eyes, but to look beautiful at the same time! Definitely will continue care with her.

I had a facial peel with Dr. Brown and it was Awesome. I have since had many more and my skin looks amazing, so I decided to try some Botox and WOW I love the way I look. Dr Brown is great and she has wonderful staff. If you are looking for facial peels, botox or fillers she is the one to call.

Best Eye Doctor I ever had in 60 years. She really cares and listens no matter how crazy my question. Not sure if any other Doctor will compare. Would really had preferred Doctor B to care for my eyes for ever.
