Ratings for Dr. D. Rick Brown
Dr. Brown is knowledgeable and seems to be concerned about your issue when he is talking with you face to face but is unbelievably terrible with regards to follow through. I have had to call multiple times weeks after tests were preformed, to get results. Promises of "you will hear from us by the end of the week" have been empty, almost all of the time. And in my experience, if a test comes back negative, nothing is wrong and you shouldn’t expect to hear from his office, period.
Dr Brown has a very busy practice, and it can be kind of impersonal. This can also translate into a long wait in uncomfortable chairs, even after your appointment time. However, I think he is a good doctor, and he has helped my wife and I through major health issues. He's not afraid to tell you when he does not know something, but he will find the answer or find the person who has the answers. I have had no trouble at all getting a referral from him when needed. He is probably the least arrogant doctor I've ever met.
