“We met Dr. Brown at a Q&A while we were expecting our first child. He is calm, compassionate, and brilliant in the pediatric field of medicine! We love this practice, the staff is great, nurses and front desk field questions all day from nervous parents, they are always helpful and kind. We love that they teach and often have students with them, sometimes this might have them behind schedule a bit but they always pop their head in and give you a ETA. I feel it is worth it, you learn so much, and I know my child is getting excellent care. I highly recommend Dr. Brown and Streeterville! Thank you.” -Heather Hickey
