About Me:

I feel very fortunate to be in a position to help people. As much as I enjoy keeping up with the latest research, I also believe that listening and good communication is just as essential. For improved health and happiness, medication is often very important. But whenever possible, I would favor finding ways to reduce stress, improve nutrition, and increase exercise. I was born in Portland and grew up on a farm in Silverton, Oregon. I met my wife, Rachel, in college. She's a musician, which keeps life entertaining. I enjoy hiking, whitewater kayaking, biking, basketball, reading good books, and spending time with Rachel on the Oregon coast. Hobbies include: Hiking, Kayaking, Cycling, Basketball, Reading, Spending time with my family

Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

I have been a patient of Dr. Brown's for over 20 years and he is always very respectful, listens to concerns I have and treats the whole person whatever the issue may be. As far as front office people go, there seems to be a lot of turnover. One staff member in particular is not very friendly, doesn't smile or engage with patients well in my opinion. I've worked in HR for 30+ years and she would benefit from additional customer service training.

I am receiving the best care possible from Dr. Brown. He listens, he provides alternatives, he respects the choices I make, and he is encouraging when I am uncertain or worried about an outcome of a treatment. I have recommended him and this group of providers for their professional attitude and overall competence. I am so glad I found them when the office first opened and was accepted as a patient.

I saw Dr. Brown in the ER at Legacy. I was in a lot of pain and he took VERY good care of me. Ordered the right tests and was able to diagnosed me quickly. Only 5 hrs. in the ER. Yay.

I am very pleased with Dr Brown. I never feel rushed with him even though at times I know he is running behind schedule. He takes every concern I have seriously and addresses them, and takes good notes and follows up and checks in at my next routine check up. He consistently gets back to me about test results.

I left after I was still not called back for my appointment after waiting for 45 minutes. I've been to see Dr Brown twice before but I was treated like a new patient and forced to fill out all that paperwork again. That made me feel like I wasn't a valued patient. I was there for a blood pressure check up and cholesterol screening, but I was so angry about the office running 45 minutes late without any sort of explanation that I decided to leave as my blood pressure was boiling at that point. I recently moved to a different city but I made the appointment with Dr. Brown as I liked him but I will not be coming back to that office again.

The first thing that the doctor does after greeting me is to log onto the computer, review my records then start to enter information pertaining to our visit. I'm having some difficulty with talking to the doctor while he is concerned with entering information into the computer. It seems like record keeping is the primary concern while we are talking. Because of that, I never feel like we have each other's complete attention and complete communication.

overall it was a good experience but I thought my blood oxygen level needed to be checked one more time while using oxygen as the initial reading I felt was inaccurrate. This became obviouse when my blood oxygen level while off oxygen was close to the other reading while on oxygen. This visit was nessessatated due to my insurance company notifying me they would no longer pay for my oxygen equipment. I hope they do not have further questions upon looking at the results.

I have lived in six different cities across the country, and have been through six different primary care doctors. Dr. Brown, by far, is the most trusting and supportive I've seen in my life. It is rare to come across a doctor in today's frantic society who's willing to literally sit down and listen or have a conversation. I am extremely grateful for his listening skills and patience. He's not only monitoring physical health but also keeps a good pulse on emotional well being which is rare. I can not say enough about the well-rounded strong qualities he brings to the room for a patient visit. It's quite evident that he cares about the person he's treating and not just the numbers coming through the clinic.

My first visit to Dr. Brown for my first physical checkup in ages. He basically allayed any fears I had in regards to my health as well as my parents' medical history and its effects on my health. He was very thorough and comforting, listening to all of my questions and concerns and providing me answers that put me at ease. The support staff was top notch; all of the tests ran quickly and efficiently. I felt very comfortable coming here for my wellness checkup and am glad I did. Very stress-free.

I was seen 30 mins late despite arriving early. The questionnaires about drugs/alcohol were excessive and unwarranted. Marking that you've had 5 drinks in a day ONCE in the last YEAR should not trigger further questioning. It interfered with the efficiently of addressing the reasons for my visit.

I think you need to throw more money at this office and pay more for nice people at the front desk. SOOOO much turnover, tackiness and lack of quietness. There is also a problem with physicals. I just needed a physical and had to wait like a MONTH to get one! SUPER excellent lab tech and very nice MA this time, though. Dr. Brown saved my husband's life 14 years ago. He diagnosed Necrotizing Faciitis from a swollen knee. Literally would be a widow today without him. But I need to get in when I need to get in. He is not available enough. I am happy to go to another in his office, but the turnover seems soooo high. AND I was told i WAS NOT ALLOWED to see another doctor. What? Its just an end of the year physical!! I'm looking -- with a sad and sorry heart -- for another provider. Very unhappy with this offfice and -- moreso - with Legacy.
