I have been a patient with Dr. Brown and her therapy staff for several months. During this time, I am continually impressed with the individual attention and compassionate care of the clinic. As a person who was always active and athletic, my spirits were down when I first attended care here. I have bone on bone arthritis in my shoulder, which has limited my ability to drive and do certain activities of daily living. The staff are professional, kind, experienced and have given me a sense of comfort, going the extra mile to assure any questions or concerns are addressed. Although I still have some time to go in my recovery, I know I'm in the right place for the best possible outcome. A special shout out to Christian, my therapist who has taken the time to check on my after our sessions, to assure I'm okay. Thank you!

I had the pleasure of meeting the entire staff at TruWell. They all were so helpful and met all my needs. My Physical Therapist was so understanding and knowledgeable. He helped me so much understand my limitations but moved me forward. Dr. Brown listened and worked with me. I could not have progressed without the remainder the staff. Thank you for a good experience.

I have been searching for a physician that could treat my numerous problems with arthritis and pain. So very happy to have found Dr Lora Brown. She’s caring and kind. Took the time to answer my many questions. She doesn’t just quickly see you and send you on your way with a prescription. But she will figure out the best way to help you. The staff is friendly and helpful. They make you feel they truly care for you and happy you’re a patient of theirs. Dr. Browns office is designed beautifully and has an open modern vibe that relaxes you the second you’re seated. It’s so nice to be offered a bottle of water or tea instead of a sign on a door saying “Absolutely no liquids or food allowed” I’ve already recommended her to friends and family. Her office is in a great location, very easy to find and the free valet parking is a plus!
