Dr. B's Bio

Dr. Samuel Y. Brown providing pediatric care since 1976

Dr. Samuel Y. Brown began a private Pediatric Practice in 1976 in Metairie, Louisiana.

Early on in his career, Dr. Brown was asked by the Office of Community Services and Child Protection Services to be the Medical Director for all of Jefferson Parish in Louisiana.

Dr. Brown’s time with the agency spanned 20 years, during which time he evaluated over 12,000 cases of abuse and/or neglect.

Dr. Brown appeared in court on numerous occasions on behalf of these children both in juvenile and criminal court, and because of his fierce dedication, he was responsible for putting several guilty parents/caretakers behind bars.

Dr. Brown was approached by Mr. Wieland and others from the Department of Health and Hospitals in Baton Rouge and asked if he would start the KIDMED Pilot Program Metairie, Kenner, and the New Orleans area of Louisiana. Dr. Brown welcomed the chance not only to accept the position, but to institute a Louisiana sponsored preventive care program for children. He began to see a difference in well care and immunization rates with his patients.

In 1996, due to the growth of his Practice and the desire to move to a more medically underserved area, he moved his Practice to Kenner, Louisiana, where he and his wife Linda built a state of the art Pediatric office.

DR. BROWN’S OFFICE IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE

- THE RE-CHECK EXPRESS

When you schedule your recheck appointment, you can be assured in knowing that your wait time for your follow-up will be minimal.

Provided that you are ONLY coming in for a recheck with no shots or well check up.

NO LONG WAIT ON THE RE-CHECK EXPRESS

ALL ABOARD THE RE-CHECK EXPRESS TRAIN!!

What is Re-Check Express?

This is a new program we have started at Dr. Brown’s office in order to reduce your wait time for a re-check, so you will be seen faster. This is for re-checks and follow-ups only on an illness basis (no shots or preventive care will be done with express re-checks). Re-checks will be seen sooner and as quickly as possible. Please understand, this may interrupt your place in line to be seen, but remember, you will be happy when your re-check turn comes.
