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 ....

This was my Best experience at a GYN appointment, she makes you feel so comfortable. She is very informative and i will never go to a male doctor again because it feel it's better getting information from someone who experiences what we experience. Definitely my new GYN!

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.

Dr. Brown and her staff were phenomenal. She was thorough, asked me alot of questions about my history and care. The office is clean and easy to get to. I've been to a number of gynos and they've all felt a bit impersonal and cold. I am so happy to have found her. She's very sweet, I feel like I've,just found my gyno for life!

The office seems pretty disorganized - I was scheduled for an appointment at a time the doctor was not present, then rescheduled and had to wait a considerable amount of time bc she had not arrived yet. I understand things can happen, but it wasn't a great first impression. She recommended a further test, but there was no one at the front desk when I left to coordinate that with and no follow-up from her office. I called to follow up and am waiting for a reply. I probably received close to 30 reminders and notifications via text and email, including several that said I hadn't made an appointment for over a year (even though this was my first visit), and was told this was just how their system worked and couldn't be rectified. The doctor herself was perfectly nice and I don't have enough experience to fully judge her competency as a doctor since it was a fairly routine annual exam. I hope it was an isolated bad incident, but did not have an overall positive experience.

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.
