One of the reviews I read about Dr Brown was that he didn't have a good beside manner. I found the opposite to be true. He was very thorough and explained what was going on in my case very well while taking plenty of time with me to answer my questions. Nor did he jump at surgery as the fix to my problem like many surgeons will do. I will definitely use Dr. Brown in the future.
