Dr. Michael Brown has the following 3 specialties
- Adult Care
- Pain Management
A pain management specialist is a physician with advanced knowledge and training in diagnosing and treating pain. These doctors do not come from one particular discipline, but rather use their respective backgrounds to contribute a varied approach to the field of pain management.
These specialists use their different skills and training in pain management to treat pain stemming from different causes - whether it's neuropathic pain or headache, or the result of injury, a surgical procedure, cancer or another illness.
Pain management specialists are primarily trained as anesthesiologists, physiatrists, interventional radiologists, neurologists, osteopaths, or primary care physicians.
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I'm a 70 year old pain medication patient. I called Dr. Brown last year,(2011)to get a second opinion because I have been on oxycodone and morphine for a number of years. Before I could tell him this he asked me if my visit would have anything to do with pain medication. I said yes and he hung up on me. He must of been having a bad day.
I was totally lost after my old pain management dr discharged me for faults that were not mine . I could not get in anywhere and no dr's where I live which is in enumclaw cared enough to help nor did they really want to . I had called over 70 pain management dr's and could not get in . Finally I called marina medical and got the money and went in and what i found was a very helpful dr and a amazing staff . For the first time I had a dr that was caring and compassionate and actually listened to me for once and didn't try to rail road me into taking medications I didn't want or need . He is very attentive and he understands what it is to be where pain patients are and what it takes for us to cope with everyday life . I hate that he can no longer prescribe the medicine I need and it is a shame that once again our "all " caring goverment thinks they need to take away the privledge of serious pain patients getting help because of those people who abuse the medicine they are lucky to get . I hope that he will be able to resume pratice in a pain management capacity again , because I fear I will never find another dr as caring and understanding as he is .I would recomend him and his clinic to anyone because they are really nice people. You can't find that anywhere now a days unless you look hard enough .
