I grew up in Littleton, Colorado, attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, and then medical school at the University of Colorado, located in Denver. After my residency in New York City I worked for three years in Kentucky before coming to Massapequa, New York. With my wife, a nurse practitioner and nurse midwife, I opened my own solo practice in Massapequa in 1993.

An Interview with Dr. Timothy Brown

What led you to the field of obstetrics/gynecology?   

Medicine always appealed to me as one of the best ways to use my mind and work with my hands while interacting with many diverse people. Obstetrics and gynecology was a happy combination of medicine and surgery.

How many years have you been practicing in the field?  

I have been in private practice for 39 years.

What makes your job rewarding? What do you enjoy about your work?

The relationship with my patients has always kept me engaged and interested, from counseling a young woman about birth control to assisting a couple through the challenges of pregnancy to addressing the challenges of menopause to providing guidance and advice to the older woman, always dealing with the particular and often unique problems that women encounter. It is a special relationship that I have always appreciated and never taken for granted.

What brought you to the area and to this practice?

After my residency in New York City we ultimately settled in Long Island where I established my practice in Massapequa. I have collaborated with the doctors of WHP for some 20 years and am pleased to now take that collaboration to a new level.

Do you have special interests or areas of specialty as an ob/gyn?  

While I am a generalist and serve as the primary physician for many of my patients, in recent years I have become particularly interested and active in the management of problems and issues involving menopause and the years leading up to menopause.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

The applications of technology to medicine have been a particular interest and I obtained a Masters in Medical Informatics in 2010. I have been active in various leadership positions within my church and enjoy theological study. Since my children and their families are scattered across the country, keeping up with them and the grandchildren is always challenging.
