Patient Testimonials

Jane K. - "Dr Brown worked with me on a plan to lose weight prior to hernia repair. Her kindness, support and motivation ensured I made the goal. Surgery changed my life. I have more energy than I have had in years. Sad but our relationship is over. I would recommend her highly to anyone needing hernia surgery."

Dolores B. - "Dr. Brown worked with me from beginning to end of my experience. She explained in detail everything I needed to know and helped me understand what to expect of my surgery. She checked in and visited me every day while I was recovering in the hospital. She is personable and understanding. I was very comfortable placing my health in her hands."

James M. - "I am writing as the caregiver for my wife, who recently experienced surgery by Dr. Brown. Dr. Brown, removed my wife's gall bladder, following an emergency room admission at Mercy Hospital, in Gilbert Arizona. This condition was complicated by other factors requiring a total stay of 6 days in the hospital.
The operation was a complete success and Dr. Brown stayed connected with us throughout this period, explaining everything that we needed to know about the operation itself, what our expectations should be following the surgery, and subsequent care.
Dr. Brown impressed both of us with her detailed medical knowledge, her ability to clearly communicate with both of us, and her professional and pleasant attitude. We did not become aware of her impressive background until my wife's post operative review, which indicated complete recovery without any complications or limitations.
Both of us highly recommend, without any qualifications or reservations, Dr. Maria Brown for any surgery contemplated within her area of expertise. She instilled well-justified confidence in her as my wife's surgeon from the first meeting and continued putting us at ease throughout the entire experience."

Syna M. - "Dr. Brown was extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. She spent a lot of time with me explaining the ins and outs of my specific diagnosis, and answered all my questions in a way that was easy to understand. I was able to get scheduled quickly and her office took care of the insurance approval which was a concern of mine. Luckily I had a good recovery, but knowing that I could reach her after hours had I needed to gave me great comfort. I would absolutely send my friends and family to see her without hesitation."
