About Me

I believe that a good physician takes the time to listen. I want my patients to feel that I understand what they are most concerned about, and that I not only provide them with quality medical care but also care about their well-being.

- Carrie Brown, MD

Dr. Brown chose to focus on ENT because it allows her to work with a variety of patients, from infants to the elderly. It also allows her to treat patients both medically and surgically.

Dr. Brown most enjoys her work when patients let her know that she has had a positive impact on their lives. She also loves seeing her younger patients back in the office after they have had tubes or tonsil surgery. Being able to hear, having less ear infections, and taking less oral antibiotics makes a big difference for kids and their parents –  when kids stop snoring, everyone in the family gets restful sleep.

Other Interests: 

Dr. Brown loves living in Portland because of all the surrounding area has to offer. Outside of work, she enjoys hiking and taking in the beauty of Oregon, cooking, gardening, yoga, wine tasting and spending time with her husband, two young children and dog.
