Best Doctor ever!

He has given me the confidence to face a 3rd surgery to 'fix my back'. I wish I had had him for the first 2 surgeries. He comes highly recommended.

Horrible

Went to see him about neck problem, in serious pain and serious neurological deficits, he says my MRI doesn't match my symptoms. I have a radiologist report stating serious condition in the neck. He said he would call me to follow up. It has been over a week and a half and haven't heard from him. In serious pain and not sleeping. I've had to schedule to see another surgeon in the area but that's 3 weeks away. I waited 3 weeks to see him for 10 minutes and could have already seen someone who actually cared. Don't go to him, doesn't care.

A life saver

I can honestly say, I feel DR Brown Saved my life.. He performed a c1/c2 fusion, a complex and risky procedure. In which other surgeons entirely overlooked the problem. He's a super busy yet caring Dr. Thank you Dr Brown.

From the beginning he told me my surgery would be massive but stated he could help me. He actually rebuilt my back! He told me to expect a 6 month recovery period it was only 3! I had been to several specialists but no one would touch me after reviewing my MRIs and other tests. My pain is considerably less and I have great flexibility. I walk several miles a day five days a week. Dr brown is such a gifted doctor. I was blessed to have him as my surgeon!

Wonderful surgeon!! His diagnosis was correct. I came to him after another doctor wanted to operate. Glad I did because the other doctor was working on the wrong area of my back. Since my 3 level fusion and recovery, I now have no back pain. I did what he said for my recovery and I now have a pain free life!! Thank you, Dr. Brown for giving me my life back!
