Specialty: Pediatrics and Adult Internal Medicine
Phone: (208) 785-3838
Dr. Brown specializes in pediatrics and internal medicine. He graduated from BYU with an undergraduate degree in pre-medicine, then went on to earn his M.D. from George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
Dr. Brown completed his residency at the University of South Florida, where he finished as chief resident over Med/Peds.
Dr. Brown is a Med/Peds physician, short for "Combined Internal Medicine & Pediatrics." This specialty requires the completion of residency training in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics simultaneously. At the end of residency, Med/Peds doctors are double board-certified as both internists for adults and pediatricians for children.
This specialty is different in structure and philosophy from Family Medicine: Med/Peds training is more specialized and extensive, and Family Medicine training is broader and more encompassing. Both doctors provide comprehensive care from newborns to geriatric patients: Med/Peds doctors as specialists, Family Medicine doctors as general practitioners. Both fields complement each other well, and work alongside each other to provide patient care.
As a physician specializing in treating families and children, Dr. Brown works hard to provide information in a clear, concise manner while at the same time building relationships with his patients that can last over the years.
He has strong connections to our area, having grown up in Ririe, where his father is still a dry farmer. He graduated from Ririe High School and served a mission to the Czech Republic. In his spare time, Dr. Brown enjoys reading, running, traveling and cooking.
