My meetings with Karen Brown have always been positive. She is thorough and informative but in a down to earth manner when answering questions regarding my health issues. She never speaks over my head which is much appreciated. I get the feeling she takes the attitude she would have when answering questions to a friend or family member.

Well considering after my surgery and I was able to stand and walk I was up singing praises to everyone that I came into contact with about Dr Thompson and his surgical team including Dr Danika Paulo who took them time to braid my hair and comfort me prior to my surgery and Dr Naveed Kamal that showed me so much compassion and understanding after my surgery when I could hardly see/read the letters on the screen because my left eye was almost closed shut. So impressed with all of them and will continue to share the stellar experience I had with them to everyone I come into contact with
