Brett Brown, PA - Pulmonology

Overall Patient Rating

4.9 out of 5 stars - 223 total ratings

A graduate of Vassar College and the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Brett has been practicing since 2014. Brett’s wife is also a physician assistant, and he became interested in the profession after helping her with her studies. “I originally had a background in both the sciences and customer service, and I eventually saw becoming an advanced practitioner as an opportunity to combine these two disciplines in a really fulfilling way,” he explains. “One of the reasons I like working in medicine so much is because it’s infinitely complex and allows you to be a lifelong student.”

Brett practices in the department of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Reliant and enjoys working closely with his patients. “I’ve found that pulmonology is one of the specialties where you can have a lot of success working hand-in-hand with patients to get them ‘dialed in’ to where they want to be with their illness. Unlike a lab or imaging result, patients can really feel their improvement when they have a pulmonary issue.”

One of the reasons Brett enjoys working in pulmonology is that he can have a big effect on a patient’s quality of life. “Addressing a patient’s sleep apnea, for example, can utterly transform a patient’s life by allowing them to get a good night’s sleep. That’s gratifying to do as a clinician, but more importantly, it’s incredibly helpful to the patient.”

In his spare time Brett keep very busy raising his two daughters with his wife. He also enjoys brewing beer, cooking, tending to his vegetable garden, as well as watching football and the occasional “insanely-challenging” video game.
