I was very pleased with the staff that got me ready for the procedure. The nurses were very kind and explained what they were doing and who would be into talk to me concerning the procedure. Dr Brown has a great bedside manner. He came back to see me after the procedure and explained what was found and I would be receiving the results of the test. I felt I was taken care of.

I travel over an hour to see Dr Brown. I have been seeing him now for over 11 years. I trust his expertise and have always been treated with dignity and respect at every visit. Will continue with him as long as he is practicing.
