The only negative was the long wait past my appointment time of 75 min.

Dr. Brown is very, very focused on each patient. He listens and never rushes an appt. He takes great care to show you recent research that pertains to our situation. If he wasn't so caring and thorough I would not tolerate the long wait every time. He is worth it!!! I wish more doctors were like him!

Dr. Alan Brown's input for my health issues and care is simply exceptional and has always been optimal. His standard has never changed. He puts proper perspective, control and in my case, works with the insurance to fight for my medical needs. Likewise, his office team and staff like Kim and Susan are simply amazing. They all provide the best care for the patients! I speak very highly of them at many of my appointments as a doctor and team who are just the best.
