Keeps Pace With Changing Medical Technology

He is an excellent listener, pays close attention to details, explains his medical plan of action and its rationale, and answers all of my questions ALL of the time. His timely intervention to stop a drug, prescribed by another doctor, saved my lungs and possibly my life.

Patient Centered Care

I have seen Dr. Brown for two physicals and his PA twice or urgent visits. I am a retired physician and know a lot about good medicine. Dr. Brown is a thorough, proficient, and caring physician. The visits were unrushed, he listens very well, and explains options thoroughly. He empowers patients. I am very glad he is my physician.

One Star

For some years, I thought I was lucky I had no bad health problems since Dr. Brown breezed in and out very rapidly at my visits. However I did have a problem that could have been diagnosed several month prior and handled by a more experienced physician who had more time. While in the hospital five weeks I found another general physician since I felt I would be taking my life to continue with Dr. Stephen Brown.
