What Patients are Saying...

"We just recently set up our children with Dr. Brown. We have had several visits with him. I can say he made our children giggle and feel more at ease about their appointments. I had some health concerns over one of our children and I would say he went above and beyond making sure our child was healthy. I am very pleased with how he did his job. I don't think parents and doctors always agree about everything but he heard my concerns respectfully while also trying to voice his as well. I am pleased with the practice. They always get me in if I have a concern and I would def. Recommend Dr.Brown to other families from what we have experienced so far. I thought he acted great with the kids and very respectful towards us as parents."
