Philosophy of Care

My role is to help you deal with the challenges that come with a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. This includes treating the underlying disease with disease-modifying drugs, management of MS-related symptoms such as cognitive problems, fatigue and difficulty walking. We strive to work as a team, involving other staff members, rehabilitation professionals and consultants. Educating the you and your family and providing a program to achieve maximum wellness and quality of life is a top priority.

Personal Information

I have always been drawn to people with disability. So, I chose Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation as my specialty. I find that working in multiple sclerosis is always challenging and rewarding on a personal level.
I grew up in Colorado and California, the son of a nurse and a radiologist. After residency, I wanted to work with disadvantaged patients and spent nine years at a leprosy and rehabilitation center in Northern Thailand. I came back with a lot of good memories and married a nurse who I met over there. Together, we have a son who is going to public school in Kirkland and always keeping his parents entertained. In my free time, I enjoy going to soccer games, jogging, gardening, listening to audio books. I am a dog-lover.

Community Involvement

I am on the Healthcare Advisory Committee of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and meet with three MS Support groups on a regular basis.
I have helped teach a course to physical therapy, occupational therapy and orthotist students at the University of Washington annually since 2005.

Dr. Brown continues to be extremely professional, knowledgeable, sincere, kind, and very invested in my health and care. He is not "in network" under my health insurance - I will not charge doctors. He is very vital in my treatment & my life.

I don't want to recommend Dr. Brown to others in the selfish desire to not overwhelm him with new patients. I've never found, nor had a real doctor pay so much attention to my concerns and condition, plus listening to my idea's on "off-lable" treatments. He seems open to anything that might help. Very posititive.
