About James W. Bown, M.D.

“My interest in gastrointestinal disease and function began in medical school. Throughout my training, I was involved in many GI-related research studies. Through these experiences and training, I committed to and have now practiced GI medicine for 20+ years.

“I enjoy the variety and challenges of disease found in this specialty. GI medicine treatments and evaluations have seen many changes over the years, and I offer the most current and up-to-date treatments available. The technology and procedures available are a significant part of our practice and are used to diagnose and manage our patients. The procedures are most useful when performed for appropriate indications by a trained and skilled GI physician. My partners and I are skilled in these procedures.

“I enjoy my relationships with my patients. My philosophy is to listen to the patient and work together to provide the best treatment available with a goal to provide the best quality of life possible and to provide the highest-quality GI medical care.”

“In my free time I enjoy long distance running in the past and more recently a road biking.  I also enjoy a reading – nonfiction, biographies, American history, etc. Our family enjoys swimming, barbequing, games, and most outdoor activities – hiking, fishing, hunting, canoeing and kayaking.”

I became interested in gastroenterology in medical school at University of Utah where I did a research project my 4th year with Dr. Randall Burt looking at the effects of Sulindac (NSAID) on colon polyp growth. Then in residency (Univ of Iowa) the GI professors encouraged me to pursue GI fellowship (UC-San Diego).”

What a great experience and knowing that I would be violated within the next 40 minutes lol. From the staff at the front desk and Vince my nurse what an awesome guy 👍🏼 and my anesthesiologist hats off as well Great guy and finally Dr Brown! What a kindhearted man, extremely professional and very caring person. Dr Brown was at my bedside when I awoke and discussed with me about my procedure and what they found. I cannot fault anyone from the time I checked in to the time I checked out.
