I really liked Dr. Brown and would recommend her to others. She seems knowledgeable and very attentive and caring. The wait time may be long because she takes her time with her patients. I have felt rushed in and out at other offices.

I wish the doctor would call patients for results. Instead one has to go, without any notice, to get results. I didn't get my results until months later and they weren't particularly good. They're short staffed. Adding another employee would help. This was the second time I was asked to sit and wait in a dirty room. Doctor is nice but I won't be going back.

Wow. Dr. Brown made me feel so comfortable and she didn't rush me although I was nervous. The only downside was that I had to wait close to an hr before seeing her. But would I recommend her ? Absolutely. She was amazing.

I will not return to this clinic. Everyone was polite, however, the entire experience was disorganized, the clinic seemed to be understaffed (one person filled both the receptionist and primary nurse role), and some of the practices were unprofessional (leaving exam room doors open with patients being seen inside). I waited over an hour to see the doctor for an exam that maybe took 5 minutes. Dr. Brown did not inform me before she performed part of the exam, and it caused me unnecessary physical pain.

I really like support my community, but after my follow up, I doubt that I will return to this office. The support staff was kind and friendly with the exception of the ultrasound tech who couldn't be bothered to introduce herself, explain the procedure or even speak to me face to face. Dr Brown was somewhat unprepared, she was not familiar with any of the information on my registration form; I thought she would have at least glanced at my paperwork while I waited 2 hours to see her. At the end of my exam she seemed uninterested in collecting urine or a blood sample. She insisted that it was up to me if I wanted those tested and then she quickly left the room.

I liked my visit with Dr. Brown. Unfortunately her office administration is horrible. I've been waiting over 7 weeks to be scheduled for surgery. I've called and was told they would call me back - never did. I called back and was told there was no information yet and they would call me, I called again and was told the doctor would call me. Finally I asked to receive a copy of my sonogram.......I called my health insurance and found out that there was never any submission for approval for the surgery. I was extremely upset needless to say after waiting at this time for a month. I went to pick up the copy of sonogram and asked to file a complaint. Spoke with Dr. Brown....she was apologetic and told me to give her til that following week......that following week was 3 weeks ago!!! my insurance company called me over a week ago to state that the surgery had been approved and to date I have not heard from Dr. Brown's office. I am actually in the process of finding another Dr and go over the procedure again.

The wait was way too long but Dr. Brown was nice. I also like the fact that they used the Zocdoc system to fill out forms. Makes it easier to check in. Many doctors offices don't. Also appreciate the immediate follow up email.

I had such a great experience with Dr. Brown. She was very personable and sweet. She took her time with me & was very friendly. It's hard to find a good OB-GYN that is not only knowledable but a good listener as well. She had a late start, which is fine...Luckily I didn't have anywhere to go and I was her final patient. She was so apologetic and appreciative of my patience and I am so glad I waited.

I had a great visit with Dr. Elaine Brown but more than one month later I have not obtained the results of my labs. I have called the office four times and messaged through the practice patient portal. I want to know the results of my exam: that was the point of having the tests done. One number I called that was listed at the office said that they don't accept call. Another number was answered by a man clearly in a public area with a lot of commotion in the back ground like car horns and people talking and yelling loudly. He told me to call back 24 hours later at a different number.

The doctor's office was very disorganized. The receptionist was also the medical assistant? I went in for the routine check up, specified what I was there for, a number of times. Since they have a health app, I assumed I'll receive my results there. No. I called the office for my results and was told I need to come in. I was not told this from the very first appointment. Of course they'll tell you to come in, just to collect coins. I go in for my results and its not the full panel that I asked for. I had to get blood drawn again. Just for the next time I come in, they missed another testing. How hard is it to listen to your patient and test for what they want?? And the Dr was inattentive.

It appears the office has two staff members; the doctor and the receptionist/medical assistant. There was no clear communication on when/how a patient should receive results. Their messaging system does not work so you are forced to call in and that is not always a success. Since the staff is limited, apparently some information will get lost in translation and you are again forced to reiterate details that should have been documented at your initial visit. Wait time is simply horrible. And her beside manners are barely there. I'm a patient, not a customer at a deli. This is my health and deserves your undivided attention.

Dr. Elaine Brown had a great bedside manner and was pretty funny. She made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions. I must say the receptionist was quite the workhorse from being the receptionist to getting my room ready to taking my blood then checking me out again, I thought I was seeing a magic trick! The wait time was kind of longer then I expected but the experience was well worth it.

I left the location in pain after the visit and didn't get any treatment for things I showed concern. I felt uneasy with seeing other patients' personal information easily. The doctor, however, was very pleasant and relatable.

I went for an infection. I waited for about 15-30 minutes just to speak to a nurse, and then had to wait again. The nurse had all my info in front of her that I filled out on zocdoc, but still asked me for my weight and height twice. There were two girls other than me, so I couldn't understand why it took so long. Inside the hall where patients were being treated most doors were left open by the nurse, leaving no room for privacy. There was only one doctor and one nurse, so perhaps that is why it took so long? When I finally met with Dr. Brown, she rushed through my appointment. She seemed in a hurry to end our session, not even letting me properly look up the address of my pharmacy. Perhaps that is why she never sent my much needed prescription to the right place. I called about this matter, and spoke to a male receptionist who told me he would relay my message to Dr. Brown. I still have not received my prescription. I now have to make an app elsewhere to receive a prescription for a basic infection. Dr. Brown seems like she has a very kind personality, but she rushed through the appointment, and her office overall felt unprofessional, with the semi rude nurse, and the inability to check forms that were right in front of her. Had Dr. Brown just checked my forms, I would have my prescription by now. Don't let all the fancy tech in the office fool you. Also, their office has a weird system where after your first appointment they call you saying you haven't been there in a year. Its a glitch that makes the office look unprofessional, and should be fixed. Please be noted this happened in 2017. I will not be going here again.

Phenomenal! I loved her. She was vet patient and understanding and willing to answer all my questions. She was accommodating and worked hard to find a solution To my issue. Finally a doctor who listens to my complaints instead of writing me off and sending me on my way with some drugs ! Cared about my quality of life and didn't give me the old okey doke. Best GYN I've been to to date ! And I've seen many ....

The reviews for Dr. Brown were what drew me to book an appointment with her. Unfortunately, I was not made aware ahead of time that she is a specialist, which in this case means that I am double charged - once for the initial visit, and then again to receive the results from my tests. I have never heard of this procedure before. The receptionist informed me that she tells patients if the office doesn't reach out, then the results were fine. Now, my prescription will not be refilled for some reason. Additionally, I waited about 30 minutes in the FREEZING waiting room, and another 15-20 after getting my blood pressure/height/weight taken (I actually just told the assistant my weight and height, she didn't even take them). The exam itself was very rough, the tools used were made of plastic which was not something I had experienced in the past, and the room was not very clean (garbage on the floor, I didn't see any hazardous waste bins). I asked for additional information about IUD's to which the Doctor stated she didn't like herself and didn't recommend but no other reading material our sources were offered.

Dr.Brown seemed wholly unprepared for my appointment. I had noted an allergy on my appointment form, and only after being checked in and paying my Co-Pay was I told that my allergy could not be accommodated. Because of this, I was given an incomplete exam. In addition, Dr.Brown seemed to assume I was interested in having children, despite birth control being a key focus of this exam. She asked "When are you having baby #1?". Not, "Are you interested in having children?". Not, "Have you thought about children?". I was unimpressed with this bedside manner. Later, while having my blood drawn, her assistant was on the phone with a personal call the entire time, giving me instructions in between speaking on the phone. I expect my OB/GYN to be prepared, attentive, and sex-positive. As a result, I will not be returning to this doctor.
