Recently the office was totally revamped with new people, new designs, and new equipment. Dr. Brown and his wife Missy purchased the office in early 2016. They infused the office with a new energy and a renewed dedication to excellence for their patients. What a new adventure! The office was completely remodeled and new equipment was installed.
