About James W. Bown, M.D.

“My interest in gastrointestinal disease and function began in medical school. Throughout my training, I was involved in many GI-related research studies. Through these experiences and training, I committed to and have now practiced GI medicine for 20+ years.

“I enjoy the variety and challenges of disease found in this specialty. GI medicine treatments and evaluations have seen many changes over the years, and I offer the most current and up-to-date treatments available. The technology and procedures available are a significant part of our practice and are used to diagnose and manage our patients. The procedures are most useful when performed for appropriate indications by a trained and skilled GI physician. My partners and I are skilled in these procedures.

“I enjoy my relationships with my patients. My philosophy is to listen to the patient and work together to provide the best treatment available with a goal to provide the best quality of life possible and to provide the highest-quality GI medical care.”

“In my free time I enjoy long distance running in the past and more recently a road biking.  I also enjoy a reading – nonfiction, biographies, American history, etc. Our family enjoys swimming, barbequing, games, and most outdoor activities – hiking, fishing, hunting, canoeing and kayaking.”

I became interested in gastroenterology in medical school at University of Utah where I did a research project my 4th year with Dr. Randall Burt looking at the effects of Sulindac (NSAID) on colon polyp growth. Then in residency (Univ of Iowa) the GI professors encouraged me to pursue GI fellowship (UC-San Diego).”

Dr Bown & his Staff are pleasurable to work with. Dr Bown is thorough and has good "bed -side manners".

Dr. Bown has taken extra time with our son to help with his diagnosis and has found several of his GI issues and really helped with insurance approvals of specialty meds. Very knowledgeable and personable. He is busy, but will make sure that he or someone in his office is on top of everything. Great staff and his PA Trent is very helpful too. They've all been incredibly helpful!

I don't know where these negative comments are coming from. My experience has been all positive. Professional and diligent staff. Dr. Bown is caring and patient, takes time to answer any questions, explains in detail, and is not in any rush to get you through.
