About Dr. Brown

Philosophy of care

The simplest way to sum up my approach to care is that I treat each patient the way I’d want a member of my family to be treated.  A major part of total joint replacement is working together with patients as a team. I focus on defining each patient’s goals and then devising a plan to help them function as fully as possible so they can return to the activities they love.  Before we discuss surgery, I first try all conservative, non-operative modalities.  Once those have been exhausted, I use the most modern surgical techniques, combined with tried-and-true pain management and rehabilitation approaches, to provide the best outcome possible. 

Why I entered medicine

For me, medicine is my vocation; I don’t feel I could have been anything but an orthopedic surgeon.  I was exposed to excellent mentors throughout my pre-medical and medical education who always put their patients first, heard them, and walked through their treatments with them. My passion for orthopedic surgery was cemented when I began one-on-one work with patients during my clinical rotations in medical school. I strive to emulate my mentors every day and am humbled by the relationships I form with my patients.

Community involvement

I’m involved in social justice activities at my church, including service to the homeless. It’s an opportunity to connect with the community and help those in need. My other joy is mentoring undergraduates and medical students. It not only renews my own interest in medicine but also deepens my enthusiasm for orthopedic surgery. I consider it a privilege to help future generations of physicians, just as I was once helped.

Personal interests

I'm devoted to my family and friends and spend the majority of my free time with them enjoying the outdoors and attending sporting events. I’m an avid sports fan and continue to follow teams I grew up with back in Washington State – the University of Washington Huskies and Seattle Seahawks. As a newcomer to the Lehigh Valley, I also love checking out local sports here, not to mention exploring all the fantastic activities this area has to offer, especially the excellent food options.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
