Exceptional

Dr. Brown twice performed surgery on my shoulder in the last 10 years and I've recently visited him for arthritic changes in my shoulder. Each time he took the time to explain what was wrong and what the procedures would involve. He personally calls a few days after surgery to follow up. His bedside manner was and continues to be the best I've experienced (and I've had 9 different surgeries) so I really don't understand why a few others complain unless that's what makes them happy.
