With my father’s history of minor skin cancers, it’s important that I have a dermatologist I not only trust but am also comfortable with. Dr. Brown is caring and takes the time to both listen and explain.

For a minor issue, I thought, Dr. Brown taught me what my problem really was. A precursor of cancer that could be easily dealt with, and it was.

I had an appointment on May 4 and they called me on April 22 and asked if I would like to come that day. I was thrilled to be able to come in earlier! The staff was amazing! Very nice and professional. Dr. Brown was wonderful! Very knowledgeable and made me feel at ease. The wait time was practically nonexistent. Very impressed with this practice!
