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

Patient Rating

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 made an appointment at 1pm, was seen by Dr Brown at 2:15, was at Emanuel hospital for blood work and diagnostic testing by 3:30 and had blood test results back when I woke this morning. Everything ran so quickly and smoothly that I was surprised. I'm very thankful for the care that Dr Brown and his team gave me.

Dr. Brown is a very likeable doctor and he's quite pleasant to deal with. However I'm concerned about the new direction I'm seeing doctor visits take. During my appointment Doctor Brown wore his doctor badge around his neck and over his shoulders, just like in TV. Yet during the entire time we were together he sat on a stool, with his hands on the computer keyboard and his focus 100% on the computer screen. In the past I've been used to having the doctor look at me - take an interest in me by making eye contact - rather than looking at a computer screen. He did not touch me once except to shake hands entering and leaving. In the past I've had doctors take couple blood pressure readings even after an assistant had accomplished that chore. In the past doctors have listened to my heart with multiple applications of the stethoscope rather than just wearing it as a doctor badge. In the past the doctors have placed their hands on my neck area checking for cancer lumps. I honestly feel my visit could have been done on the telephone saving me the bus trip to 1600 NE Broadway. In closing I want to add that viewing the record of my Dr. Brown visit I saw comments on the Legacy Web site that were not discussed with me. Regards, {name removed to protect privacy}

I hope that someday, physicians will think to ask the patient about their emotional state, or their general state of satisfaction in their present life, instead of simply asking us to checkmark an exhaustive list of symptoms. Until that happens, physicians are missing the point of the connection between mind and body. Too bad.

My experience was outstanding. I am sorry to see Dr Brown retire, but he deserves a great retirement. Hopefully Hid replace will be as competent as Dr Brown

I had the pleasure of seeing Dr Brown recently as my primary doctor was not in the office that day. Dr Brown quickly integrated my medical history with my current symptoms and labs to determine that I have kidney stones. He then took the time to explore the question of why the stones are occurring. He is following me as I have more testing and we have a plan for me to see my primary care doc. This process has been personable, supportive and seamless. I must say an uncommonly positive experience in health care these days. I feel well taken care of and a huge sense of gratitude for Dr Brown and his clinic.

Dr. Brown assessed my overall health and other health issues not just the health issue for which I made the appointment. His attention to my overall health resulted in blood work that revealed CHF and fluid retention of which I was unaware.

The only bad part was this was the last time my wife and I will see Dr. Brown as our primary care physician. Dr. Brown will be a relief doctor, with no patient list. We now must find a new PCP. Dr. Brown gave us a recommended list and we will start looking in July.

Dr Brown is an excellent doctor. He had an excellent contact with me and was very well informed about my medical history For instance I wasn't convinced to get a biopsy after a routine mammography , but Dr Brown convinced me to go ahead very gently and the procedure at Emmanuel hospital was performed very professionally as well. The results were negative Great job !!

I think the staff of Legacy is great, especially the physician's assistants and Dr. Brown. The only thing that remains a problem for me is the very long wait time. The last two times I've had an appointment, I've checked in 20-30 minutes early and haven't been called into the exam room until 30 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. I waited in the waiting room for a full hour on Tuesday before my appointment, which I'd had scheduled for 5 months. That seems a bit ridiculous to me.

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.

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.

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.
