Dr. Brown was personable, caring, empathetic, understanding and above all else, thoroughly professional and one of the more competent and knowledgeable doctors I have met with. I came in shaky and nervous after falling and injuring my ankleand Dr. Brown took her time to explain, inform and reassure me. I left feeling taken care of by someone at the top of their field. Everyone in the office was excellent in giving time, thought and care to my situation.

Dr. Brown is awesome. She could see that I was kinda nervous and yet, I knew that I was in very good hands. Dr.Brown took care of me and answered any question that I had about my injury. Dr.Brown has "gotgame" (knows her stuff and makes you feel that every little thing is going to be alright). I would and will go back to her in the future with any problems with my injury. She Rocks!

Dr. Brown as a doctor was fine. However, her billing system is awfulThey require a log in/download of a separate app to view the bills, but then don't accept online payments. The front desk staff answered inappropriately about billing (wouldhave rather her have said she didn't know than give me incorrect information that my visit was completely covered, which it was not) and the wait time was incredibly long because she had double booked.

My visit with Dr. Brown was short, but fine. She has an EXTREMELY rude and incompetent receptionist. From day one, rude in person and on the phone. Not willing to help, slow, and has an incredibly bad attitude. Never ever going back!

I went to see Dr. Brown for a second opinion following an unsuccessful ankle surgery. Unfortunately as soon as Dr. Brown heard the diagnosis given by my original ankle surgeon all she did was gaslight me and reiterate his opinion withoutconsidering any other possibilities. I also had to call her office multiple times over the course of a month before they actually got my records from the other doctor, and by the time I saw her again she had no recollection of my first visit.

I found Dr. Brown to be thorough and professional. She referred me for x-rays and an MRI to determine the correct treatment plan. After reviewing these assessments I began physical therapy. My only complaint is that she required me to comein for what felt like an unnecessary follow up visit several months after I had started PT. I was feeling a lot better, but the PT needed an updated prescription for my insurance. I understand that the Doctor needs to be diligent, but I was told I needed to come in for a follow up in order to get the prescription. I did, and the visit was extremely short - the doctor told me what I already knew, that I was improving and to keep doing PT. It felt like a waste of time/energy on my part.

Dr. Brown was efficient and pleasant. She provided a larger explanation and gave me her perspective on my issue. While I only saw her for 10 minutes she did provide me with additional knowledge and information that I needed to geton the path to recovery. One thing I will say is that her receptionist doesn't reflect Dr. Brown's attitude. Prior to my appointment I was called and told to get an X-ray. I was surprised to hear that because I was going in for a consultation (the next day) and wasn't sure what my X-ray needed to be. The receptionist had such an attitude about it and when I was greeted at the desk she mentioned again that I would need to get an X-ray. I, again, have no idea why or what for, or where? And finally the doctor came in, gave me the diagnosis and told me to go get a x-ray for which the receptionist then said "like I told you you would need to." This made the whole experience really unpleasant and annoying. while I will be seeing Dr. Brown again as a follow-up I do not believe I will continue with her practice if this is what it is like.

She was terrific and although my situation wasn't urgent, she took my pain and my issue with concern. Fortunately, I will probably not need any follow up, but if something comes up again, I will certainly try to be treated by Dr. Brown.

I think that Dr. Brown is a knowledgeable and skilled doctor and I respect her approach to the patient's overall health, not just the injury at hand. However, I find that she is not communicative, does not answer questions, or provideany kind of timeline for your healing/treatment/follow-ups, UNLESS you keep coming back in for appointments (an extra office visit charge). I will not be returning to her and will be looking for someone who I don't have to hunt down for days for an answer to a question and does not require that I show up for unnecessary visits.

The visit seemed fine but she sent my prescription to the wrong pharmacy and when I followed up with her office all they did was tell me she was not in the office and they didn't know what they could do.They pushed through a nasal spray and Aleve to my pharmacy for some reason (assuming because they read my chart which I told them that's current other "meds" I am taking) but Dr. Brown refuses to acknowledge her office did this even though my pharmacy has the note from her office. I called her office and got her phone service which they instruct you to call back in 20mins if you don't hear from the Dr., Which I did. Once she finally responded, she seemed rude but corrected my prescription location (unfortunately it was to late in the evening and my pharmacy was closed) offered no apology and told me 3 Aleve 3 times a day is equivalent to the prescription. She only talks to you via the patient portal and doesn't seem to respond often unless she is at fault. I'm still waiting on question asked of her per my x-ray results....Worst experience with a Dr. I ever had. I wouldn't recommend her to anyone.
