Dr. Stephen M Brown has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • 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.

Rudest person I've ever talked to!!!

I called his office to get some information about a medical exam for my wife's green card, and when he called me back at the end of the day, I wish he had just ignored me! He sneered, he interrupted, he made confusing statements and then snapped at me when I asked him very politely to clarify or repeat his statements, and finally announced that he had had enough and hung up on me! I have never been treated with such blatant disrespect in my entire life. Moreover, he gave me some information about the appication that, when I checked with other doctors and on the Internet, turned out to be completely wrong and unnecessary, it appears he just wanted to squeeze more money out of me.I can only imagine what an awful doctor he is in person, and after reading other reviews of him, I am not surprised.

Worst Doctor...unbelievably bad

Can you believe a doctor can do something like this? A kid who just turned 18 got a call from him. After hearing that the cancellation was done the day before, he changed his cancellation policy from 24 hrs to 48 hrs over the phone. He decided he will charge the kid $250. When the kid told him that he had to talk to his parents, he sneered at him. How can a person like this one practice medicine in US? He is unprofessional and unethical. He is almost like a crook.
