Dr Brown did not rush us (unlike other family physicians who literally tell you "you have 10 minutes" ) he communicateswith his patients well and took his time explaining the medical condition and treatment options. He has an excellent bedside manner, and his receptionist, Linda, was also very accommodating. My only qualms is that his visit charge is on the pricey side. However, it's rare to find a doctor who takes time to get to know you and at the same time very reassuring and knowledgeable. Will most likely switch to him as our primary care physician

Dr. Brown is great! I am trying to get my FAA medical certificate. My situation is a bit more complicated thanmost and he has been very helpful in telling me what I need to do to have all the information together to be reviewed appropriately. He is the classic family practice doctor, been doing it for years and really seems to care about his patients.

Practice, minor surgery, preventive medicine, travel medicine, gynecology, no obstetrics (none since 1982), internal medicine, emergency medicine, and hospital practice ( I admit all my patients and follow manage and coordinate their care on medical, surgical, and critical care units at El Camino Hospital). I have been an Aviation Medical Examiner for the FAA for the past 32 years. I have a subspecialty practice in the treatment of varicose veins.

We take care of patients with no insurance, medicare, worker’s compensation cases, and patients with health insurance, but we are not contracted with any private insurance company. Our patients pay at the time of service and are reimbursed by their insurance companies based on their out of network
