Too fast.....I didn't have time to react to ask questions.....did not explain in detail the out-patient surgery or what to expect or what to do or NOT to do after the surgery!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Patient | December 1, 2016

Dr brown is an awesome Dr. asset to your clinic
Patient | December 1, 2016

My former doctor REFUSED to have a conversation of any kind with me - leaving me left out in the cold, terrified and extremely frustrated. I just need someone to care, listen, and understand. There are no tests that show what it's like looking through my eyes. I can't make anyone understand what it's like to try and function with vision like this; let alone try to function with the nightmarish side effects and quality of life. And all the Disability office says is "that's why the suicide rates are so high". Is that the best anyone can do? Dr Brown LISTENED. And he's the ONLY person who re-did the OCT scan because he knew it WASN'T DONE RIGHT. To me, that's outstanding. But what's shameful in today's world, and the 'relativity' of things, it's sad. Someone like Dr. Brown is long overdue.

Patient | October 18, 2016

Very happy with the provider, just not the wait. My biggest fear was that I would not get seen and checked out before I could get to my own clinic to see my own patients. My doctor's appointment with tests was scheduled for 8 am and my first patient was scheduled to see me at 10:30 am. I don't want to close my clinic any further because I am in another Vanderbilt clinic as a patient that is sitting and waiting.

very good
Patient | October 3, 2016

Dr. Brown made me feel very comfortable about my condition.
Patient | September 22, 2016

Dr. Brown goes beyond my expectations -
Patient | September 22, 2016

I want to say I had the very best treatment anyone could have for my eye treatment. Best care anyone could have.
Patient | September 16, 2016

Provider did not offer any assistance for my complaint of eye irritation/did not know that a medicine I was taking was not appropriate for my eyes - (discovered after visit via research by self).
Patient | September 4, 2016

First time to see this Dr.
Patient | August 23, 2016

Very good we talk about my med. and care.
Patient | August 10, 2016

I liked him, and that was my second visit. I would recommend him to family, and friends.
Patient | August 9, 2016

I have recommended Dr. Brown to another person with my same problem.
