During his medical training, Dr. Brown concentrated on internal medicine. He chose to focus on this area because he enjoys all aspects of medicine and didn’t want to limit himself to one specific organ system. “Internal medicine allows me to keep a broad scope of practice,” he said. “My goal is to help my patients in a rural setting without having to send them to a specialist in another city.”
When teaching patients how to stay healthy, Dr. Brown emphasizes the importance of an overall healthy lifestyle. “A good diet combined with exercise will help to treat most of your health problems better than any medication I could prescribe you,” he said.
Dr. Brown is a member of several medical organizations including the American College of Osteopathic Internists, the American Osteopathic Association, the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians, the American College of Osteopathic Emergency Physicians and the Christian Medical Association.
When he is away from the office, Dr. Brown enjoys fishing, golfing and spending time with his wife and two kids.
