I could not be more satisfied. Dr. Brown has performed two spinal surgeries on me. One was to remove a tumor which would have paralyzed me and another was to remove a bone spur which was very painful. Dr. Brown is the most intelligent physician I have ever known. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Brown has performed four surgical procedures on me. Two on my spine with a fusion, and two for carpal tunnel. Both spine procedures greatly improved my quality of life. Dr Brown talks to you in a way that you understand your condition. He has a great sense of humor and bedside manner. I love this man!

I love Dr Brown! He is a wonderful surgeon and has performed three surgeries on me due to herniated disc. I would recommend anyone who needs any type of neuro/spinal surgery. His office staff however leaves much to be desired. Very rude and unprofessional with the exception of a few.
