Some words from Dr. Brown:
"I was born and raised in Chicago, IL. However, despite that or maybe
because of that, I developed a love of the outdoors and small-town living.
This led me to pursue a career in rural family medicine seeking additional
training along the way. I have spent the past 11-years working at Clearwater
Hospital in Orofino, Idaho where I provided full spectrum family medicine
that included extensive experience in ER medicine and hospitalist operations.
The desire to continue to practice in a small-town setting combined with
the goal of being closer to the mountains and the challenge of new opportunities
brought me to Deer Lodge, MT."
Dr. Brown's hobbies include downhill and cross-country skiing, hiking,
road biking, travel, and photography.
