Dr. Brownell remembers me, including some personal details, even though I don't go to the doctor very often. He discusses treatment options, offers his preferred option, then respects my choice.

This appointment I was told they were running behind. Doctor seemed rush during the visit in efforts to get caught up. This has not been the case in the past. Perhaps it is a one time thing.

Dr. Brownell never makes you feel rushed, like he only has a limited time to listen to you.
