I'm so loss for words right now,I was a patient of his for 10 years.And I am so thankful that we crossed paths, because in a way I feel he helped me open my eyes to a new me and without him and his guidance and wisdom I may not be here today. He was such a great doctor and had a heart of gold and was such a wonderful person inside and out. I will never find another doctor like him he was one of the best and will be dearly missed. I pray for him and his family and kids.God Bless you All. At least Dr Brown is finally at peace.

Dr. Brown was a light in this World. I was a Patient of Dr. Brown's and I will always be thankful that Dr. Brown and I crossed paths. I saw Dr. Brown once every two to three weeks for about 2 1/2 years for ECTs in the surgery unit at the Salisbury VA, and he helped me in a manner in which no one had been able to help my medical conditions before. Dr. Brown was professional, friendly, happy, knowledgeable regarding the medical field, and he had integrity. I always enjoyed my talks with Dr. Brown. I will always be thankful for the manner in which he helped me. He will be greatly missed. May his memory be a blessing.

So very sad to hear about Dr. Brown passing, I worked with him at Wake Forest University, as a Forensic Paralegal in Psychiatry. I learned a lot from him and throughly enjoyed working with him. He was very kind and a great mentor for me. We worked on quite a few forensics cases and he was always a delight to work with. My many thoughts and prayers go out to his family. He will be dearly missed.

I am so sad to hear of Tom’s passing. He and I were colleagues and friends at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in the Department of Psychiatry. We worked together teaching residents and students and seeing patients as attending psychiatrists on the inpatient unit. In all of my years practicing medicine I have never had a better colleague than Tom Brown. He always had my back. More importantly, he always had the back of the residents, students, staff, and patients. Tom was genuine, warm, kind, bright and funny. He was a great doctor, a great friend, and he will be missed.

Thank you, Dr. Brown, for being a wonderful teacher to our psychiatry residents at the VA. I had heard so many great things about you from other residents and faculty, including my husband, Patrick Smith. I am so glad that we had the honor to train with you.

Deepest condolences.
