    She took great care to explain things and give warning before doing anything that may cause discomfort. I'm very sad she's retiring soon.

    Dr. Brown is my favorite!! She and the rest of the nursing staff made this a very pleasant visit - listening intently when they asked questions and making me feel comfortable to ask my own questions.
