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

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 always had a good experience with Dr. Brown. He is thoughtful, professional and personal (in ways that are appropriate for a doctor patient relationship. He knows current research, and is willing to share his knowledge so that I am able to understand the significance for me and my needs. I do appreciate the staff at clinic as well.

Dr Brown, and the MA were excellent. I have always been pleased with the care I've received from Dr Brown and have recommended him to a friend who has been very pleased also. I would say that the receptionist that helped me while courteous and professional, did not smile, greet me in a friendly manner...any of those small things that make interactions more enjoyable beyond mere professional courtesy. Also, there were a number of unpleasant facial expressions (frowns, etc) that she displayed, that while I know they were not directed towards me, gave me a less favorable impression of her.

I especially appreciate that Dr. Brown never rushes through my office visit. He takes time to discuss my issues and answer all of my questions. He doesn't rush to prescribe additional medications; instead, he tells me about the pros and cons. AND - this survey asks if I phoned with questions during office or after office hours. I answered literally - no, I didn't phone. HOWEVER - several times I asked questions on-line via MyHealth. I always got a response within 24 hours. I think this is a poorly worded survey question, unless you truly only are interested in phone calls.

Dr. Brown is an exceptional doctor. His knowledge base is extensive and concern for his patients is genuine. I am [age deleted] years old and have had five internists as my primary care doctor over the time I have lived in PDX. Dr. Brown is a young man, but he is quickly approaching the level of care I experienced for many years with the sainted [name deleted].

I am always asked to fill out a paper ROS, current medications, and other information about my health. This paper is never really used and seems like a waste of paper and of my time. The MA always just asks me the same questions, which makes sense to me. I would prefer to fill this information out online via MyChart of Welcome.

I always enjoy my visits to the clinic when seen by my regular provider, Dr. Jay Brown. He has such a winning smile, and excellent "bedside manner". This, on top of his knowledge, and ability to explain my health issues, and make recommendations.

The nurse who took my blood was unable to draw my blood because I have small veins, she poked around trying to push the blood out into the receptacle with her fingers and bruised the heck out of the point of the needle entrance. If she was not capable she should say so not keep trying, she finally said I need to go to Mt Hood Lab to get it done. I am not a happy camper.

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.

What a coincidence- I took a chance on a sick day, just happened to be in the area. I called first, left a message & then walked to the office. To my surprise there was an available slot within 5 minutes- "Just for me". What a surprise that I could see my doctor so quickly. Truly grateful- excellent service as usual (this tops them all).

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 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.
