Dr. Jeffrey L. Brown

Dr. Jeffrey L. Brown did his undergraduate studies at Cornell University. Later, he attended New York College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed family practice residency at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, New York. Quoting Dr. Brown now: “I believe that God gave our body the ability to heal itself. We just have to give our body what it needs. This principle is why I became an osteopathic family physician so I could learn how to diagnose and treat conditions with my hands. Once I became a physician, I quickly realized that traditional medicine was limited to treating symptoms, and not truly healing the body. As a result, I furthered my studies. First, I learned how to use Meridian Regulatory Acupuncture (MRA) to treat pain and other conditions. Later, I became board certified by the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. This knowledge gave me the tools necessary to learn how to prevent and reverse disease. I don’t believe that there is a disease out there that we cannot cure as long as we have faith, discipline, love, and our body has the appropriate nutrients to heal.” Board Certified and Diplomat of the American Academy of Anti-Aging & Regenerative Medicine American Osteopathic Board of Family Physicians American Board of Acupuncture Medicine American Board of Family Medicine Licensed in the State of Nevada View Guest page
