Philosophies


WHAT IS DR. BROWNS METHOD, PHILOSOPHY & PROCESS? 

  • Dr. Brown is an Integrative Veterinarian with advanced training in TCVM
    • She started her veterinary journey as a Western practitioner and is slowly adding the holistic options that she is most interested in.

It takes time and financial resources to pursue all the additional services she intends to offer as there is a vast array of holistic modalities outside of conventional veterinary medicine

      • The main holistic services that she offers are TCVM Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and TCVM-specific Food Therapy. She also offers select Western herbs, PEMF, whole food supplements, etc. In addition to a wide array of Western/Conventional Medicine

MAY I INTERVEIW OR "CHAT" WITH DR. BROWN TO SEE IF A "GOOD FIT" PRIOR TO SCHEDULING?

  • Short answer: No 
  • Explanation:
    • Dr. Brown understands that pets are family and that choosing a veterinarian is an important decision however it is not possible for Dr. Brown to personally respond to pre-appointment requests such as this. Dr. Browns main focus is the care of her patients. She spends her time either with patients or traveling from patient to patient. The only way for her to respond to such requests is to charge a fee as the amount of phone/email time required to accommodate such requests would diminish schedule availability for appointments and patient care while quickly leading to burn out. In a profession that already has one of the highest rates of compassion fatigue and suicide amongst all other medical professions this is the type of request that only adds undo stress to an already fragile profession

DOES DR. BROWN OFFER FREE CONSULTATIONS PRIOR TO SCHEDULING? 

  • Short answer: No
  • Explanation:
    • What is a free consultation? A free consultation is asking Dr. Brown on her personal time questions about a pet. Asking Dr. Brown questions about a pet is the same as asking for medical advice. Asking for medical advice requires an active doctor/client/patient relationship by law. As much as Dr. Brown would love to chat about pets it is simply not feasible by law or practical as it would take away time from patient care and quickly lead to burn out
