I truly dislike writing bad reviews but I had such a horrible experience I just had to. This was my first time seeing an OBGYN n I got to the office at 1:45pm for a 2:00pm appointment and the doctor did not arrive until after 3:00pm which is just unacceptable. It's my own fault for even waiting but getting to the actual exam, I told Dr. brown that this was my first time seeing an OBGYN and instead of taking her time with me she just rushed through the exam without much information and did not explain what she was doing and why. I was asking so many questions because she just didn't provide enough information at all. Such a horrible, horrible experience. I will never go back.

Last time I was here the wait was really long, but after my experience today, I think that was just a fluke. I was there 20 minutes early and she saw me before my appointment time. She was funny and personable and I did not feel rushed at all.

Once she saw me she was very personable and made me feel at ease. I liked the doctor a lot and hope that the wait time was just a fluke. I will be going back but I am very disappointed that it seems like I have to expect it to take the whole day. I showed up at 12:10 for a 12:30 appointment I was not seen until 2:30. I took off work to have a day of appointments, you would think that a 12:30 GYN appointment would be early enough to make it to a 3:30 dentist appointment in the same neighborhood but if you are going here you would be wrong. Also, the address on ZocDoc does not mention that this is an Omnicare center where you will have to buzz Omnicare and then guess what floor you should go to since there is no directory or label or anyone to ask. (it's the 2nd floor)

I came early and had to wait bc other patients were in front of me. This was the first time I've had to wait after seeing her three other times; and when her asst saw I was only there for results she asked Dr Brown to see me right away. Dr Brown is a great resource for women of color. She is a ring and professional. I feel very comfortable with her.

Though I was pleased with the wait time and the staff that works at her office, Dr. Brown did not have the greatest of bedside manners. She did not try to converse or create a relationship with me before engaging in a pelvic exam. Then, I received antibiotics without a clear explanation, and when I asked for one she seemed defensive. I understand that she was feeling under the weather, but I believe that doctors should empower their patients to ask questions and have clear explanations for their prescriptions.

I was already wary about returning to see Dr. Brown from my previous appointment but had to because I needed the results from my procedure.I had previously inquired about whether or not they could be mailed to me or given to me over the phone and they said I had to go in. This differed from my previous experiences with doctors who have given me my results over the phone and via encrypted messages. I was highly disappointed because that meant I would have to pay for an additional doctors visit just to get my lab results. For my previous appointment I had to wait almost 2 hours to see Dr. Brown. The office assistant seemed overwhelmed with work; she noted that someone had called out that day. She was very kind and efficient, especially in light of her workload. The waiting room was very full. Before a procedure is done, I am used to the instruments for the procedure already being prepared in the room, often laid out on a tray. It is also common for doctors to wash there hands in the exam room before beginning a procedure. Neither or these were true for my appointment. Also, the doctor had to rummage through a plastic storage bin, that was just sitting on the counter, of various medical instruments to find what she needed- they were not individually wrapped in plastic and looked as if they were all just thrown in a bin. The lid to the bin was not airtight by any means. It was NOT obvious that the instrurments had been sanitized and the way they were stored out in the open seemed unprofessional to me. During the procedure, Dr. Brown sometimes explained what she was doing but not always like many OBGYN doctors do. I had to ask questions about what to expect after the procedure and what I should and should not do; she did not tell me straight out. She seemed like a knowledgeable doctor but she was not as forthcoming with information as I prefer my doctors to be. For this follow-up appointment for the lab results from the precious procedure, I waited about an hour and a half to see Dr. Brown. Her office opened at 4pm but she didn't arrive until 4:50pm (my appointment, as well as someone else's in the waiting room, was at 4:30pm). The person who also had a 4:30pm appointment said the long wait was pretty typical of her experience with the office. The front desk was very disorganized. Her front desk assistant was absent so the assistants for a previous doctor stayed but they were unfamiliar with her system and could not answer questions regarding the order in which she would see patients and had difficulty signing patients in. I spent maybe 5 minutes with her discussing my lab results and had to ask for a copy of them. Additionally, their credit card machine was out of service so they wanted to photocopy my credit card and drivers license so that they would run it the next day. This made me uncomfortable knowing that my credit card information would be documented in that way. All in all they follow-up appointment felt like a waste of time and I do not think I will be returning to Dr. Brown's office.

Dr Brown was great! She is very personable and friendly. My visit was fast and I felt comfortable the entire time. My only complaint would be that the exam rooms seem cluttered...with all sorts of things. If you look past the clutter you do see everything is sealed and what not, but I don't want to see a bag of empty pee containers and other supplies--even if they are clean and sterile.

After waiting for over an hour, I was rushed through the procedure and nothing was explained. I even let her know it was my first time at a gynecologists office. There was then a lot of follow up hassle about my tests and she was not sympathetic at all, after finally being allowed to speak with her on the phone.

The doctor didn't bother to show up. After waiting for 30 min I asked the receptionist and she said Dr Brown isn't here yet. And they were all confused about my insurance, which I had used just 6 months before for a visit. It was a mess. I will find another gyno who is capable.

Dr. Brown is very personable. I became her patient in 2009 and am highly satisfied being in her care! During this visit, we chatted about our pets and she consoled me on the loss of my pet. She spoke about my concerns and the reason for my visit.I will return for my results in two weeks. I look forward to her addressing my mystery!
