Ratings for Dr. Margaret Brown
After going to her for a few years, my health started to deteriorate and I kept telling her something was wrong. After 4 years of regular visits to her trying to get an answer, I felt so unwell that I could barely walk into her office without chest pain and extreme fatigue (At 30 years old this is not normal). She could not figure out what was wrong and told me that she thought no one would be able to help me and that I should just increase my anti-depressants (which the cardiologist that she referred me to told me NOT to do) and just "manage my symptoms". She had do little compassion for my suffering. I have now had a new doctor for a year who did some tests and found out I was anemic! Apparently Dr. Brown had been ordering the wrong test! He has adjusted my medication and has worked with me on a plan to get well. I now have my life back and almost all of my strange symptoms (that Dr. Brown ignored) have disappeared.
She took me on when no one else would and I just found out I was pregnant. She's my son's doctor now too. She's taken on my WCB cases and dealt with my everyday problems and helped us every inch of of the way. She's Not always on time but she listens and helps with specialist appointments, timely referrals and she's knowledgeable regarding medical treatments,or alternative options. She has gone out of her way to call in the evening as late late as 9pm to discuss test results! She is not the type of doctor to prescribe pain pills to mask a problem. I would completely recommend her as a family practitioner! Office environment is clean with a fairly pleasant staff. Nurses are fantastic!!! Got flu shot and it Did not even hurt. I was amazed!!! My 3 year old son Ayden adores her! He is a very rambunctious boy and keeps her on her toes but she never skips a beat! She has him calm, sit still, and do do what she she needs to do with him to get better. He loves his stickers.
she is always on time which i think is not a good thing because sometimes patients need extra care and this tells me she is not giving it. i have been a patient of hers for a few years and find her to be very conservative with specialist appts and services. i have had more than one other professional be surprised at her treatment and responses to me.
