It took 2 hours to be seen and front office staff were excellent. Facilities seemed dated and Dr Brown had great bedside manner. I wasn’t confident he knew pediatric dermatology enough to meet our needs, but I would return for adult care.

Decent office space in non descript building. Nice staff, clean exam rooms. WiFi was a nice touch. Dr. Brown seems very knowledgeable regarding his craft and my issue. Jury is still out on results.

Great help and I was able to get my ointment quickly, but I wish I knew that there was a long wait, I wouldn’t have rushed for transportation. Also, they ladies at the front were helpful but didn’t let me know he was running behind so I can adjust the schedule. Otherwise, great doctor. In and out once I was seen.

I visited Dr. Brown over a year ago dealing with a severe case of acne. He was the only dermatologist that placed an emphasis on my diet. While I waited for at least 30 min to see him, it was worth the wait. Plus he found another pharmacy to fill my prescription when my normal one would not fill it. And my skin is looking much better.

The wait was too long! I understand that sometimes schedules get behind, but no one said anything to me I just waited. After an hour I asked how much longer i would have to wait. I was told that I was going to be taken back now. Once I was in the patience room the receptionist apologized but I was tired and just wanted to be seen by the doctor and to leave. The receptionist left and i sat for 20 more minutes! I went to the front desk and said that i wanted my co pay back and I wanted to leave. The other lady that was behind the counter went to inform the doctor that i was leaving and then the doctor became available. The doctor is super nice and listened to what my problem was and made good observations and recommendations. I think if they know that the doctor is running behind that its the receptionist job to inform the patient. But to leave me sitting in the lobby for an hour and 20 minutes is unexcusable.

Dr. Brown is very personable and was already familiar with the reasons for the appointment. Thorough and pragmatic, his explanations were clear and he made extra sure that I understood. The front office staff was all that you'd want. Pleasant, clear and made sure everything was taken care of. It was also great that I could get in on relatively short notice.

Wait time a little over an hour. Was afraid I'd get the hard sell for body sculpting based on the looping advert on the screen in the waiting room, but there was no mention of it. Dr. Brown was warm, personable and engaging. He seemed quite knowledgeable. If it weren't for the wait time I'd heartily recommend.

I've been seeing Leon Brown for several years. There are three things I appreciate about him. (1) He is very direct and is willing to take the time to educate me and answer my questions. And, he's very easy to talk with. (2) He pushes me to take responsibility for my health, instead of just prescribing and letting it go at that. (3) He works with me to help make sure my meds are covered by insurance. I've also found it is far easier to get in to see him than for most dermatologists, some of whom have a months-long waiting list.

The office looks dingy and unkept, the staff lacks attentiveness and customer service skills, especially the Hispanic receptionist. I was still asked to fill out paperwork, even after doing it online. The wait was entirely too long! I waited an hour to see the doctor. The doctor all in all was n it nice, however he did come off a bit sarcastic and arrogant.

He's from the Doctor Knows Best line of thinking. He will answer questions as though you have a 2nd grade intellect. He would not tell me the ingredients in a compounded ointment he called in. He did not contact my primary care even though she wanted him to and passed on her personal contact info.

I would describe my appointment with Dr. Brown as transactional. He provided a screening, answered my specific questions, and sent me on my way with a prescription to treat my needs. I wouldn't say he had great bedside manner (but not bad either), but for this type of appointment, I didn't really care about bedside manner. I did have to wait 45 minutes, but I've sort of grown to expect that will all doctors. The only aspect of the appointment that I'd rate negatively was the fact that there was another male doctor in the room. I assume he was some type of resident but he was never introduced and Dr. Brown didn't explain why he was there. He just sort of stood in the background. This person looked uncomfortable in the room... which made me slightly uncomfortable. If I were female, I'm pretty sure that situation would have made me extremely uncomfortable.
