Specialties

Dr. Paul B Brown has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

Think twice before scheduling.

Doesn't bill insurance; $525 upfront payment is required for 20 minute first-visit. Private practice so no accountability or quality control. Very brief appointments (20, 12) ; no medical history taken. Had to ask for office notes and they were inaccurate. Totally. Shoddy, money-grabbing practice. Unless you have an ongoing, obvious rheuma diagnosis, go elsewhere.

QUACK!!!!!!

Disliked Amt of them spent with me , 5 min, hiking prices every year and most importantly, failing to properly informing me about methadone, side effects, the longer one's on it, the harder to get off of it, what happens when one goes off it. Did as described still went into horrific withdrawal. But.........he told me it's a "safe drug." What are all of you going to do when he retires very soon? Think about that..............
