I had several issues while trying to establish myself with this doctor as my new primary. I scheduled for an annual physical. I waited approximately 15 minutes before being brought into the exam room. Even though I had filled out paperworkprior to coming, I was in the office with a nurse answering several of the same questions for approximately 1 hour, while she typed in my answers. I saw the doctor for approximately 5 minutes, where he briefly examined me. I received a bill from the office for the copayment, which there was none due to it being a physical. The doctor and office falsified my records to show I had come in for medical issues. Only after I provided documentation from this website stating it was a physical, they "waived" the copayment, but still billed insurance as an illness related visit. I will not be going back to this office.

Friendly doctor and great staff! Listens to your problems and tries to solve it. Wait time was not right away, but that was probably because I had to fill out information (being a new patient).

He wasn't the most polished, professional doctor I've ever seen but that could easily have been just a response to who I am. He seemed to have great knowledge and takes blood samples himself so you don't have to make aseparate trip to a lab. He was reasonable and accommodating. A good doc.

Just like most Doctors in this practice, he was great. Listens to your problems and really tries to figure them out. Thanks to Dr.Brown, he was able to figure out I had early signs of kidney stones. Didn’t believe him until months later when trouble started. Highly recommend.
