Work Hard, Play Hard in the Heart of the City

The lobby of Dayton Primary & Urgent Care at 301 W. First Street is a busy place. Patients are constantly coming and going, as are owners Dr. Morris Brown and his wife Alison, who works as the office manager. It’s easy to see why the family practice had to move to a new location in October of 2005 in order to support their growth. Dr. Brown, who has had his practice downtown since 1985, was initially located in the Talbott Tower.

“We were out of room, but staying downtown was important,” says Alison Brown. “The space we purchased was perfect because it is easily accessible for our elderly patients with a street level entrance and attached parking lot. Our patients come from all over and many of them use the Greater Dayton RTA to access the facility, so downtown is the perfect place for us to be.”

The 3,719 square-foot facility contains Dr. Brown’s family practice and focuses on preventive medicine and specialty treatment of diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease.

Alison is a native of Detroit and Dr. Brown was raised in Alabama, but the two have had no trouble discovering all of the entertainment options available downtown. They enjoy attending DCDC performances and listening to live music at Gilly’s, and their favorite restaurants are located downtown. The couple also believes it is important to expose their young son to the arts and culture downtown has to offer.

“Our son is a theatre buff. We love taking him to all the shows at the Victoria Theatre and Schuster Center,” says Alison. “We just have to make sure my husband has an aisle seat because it’s a given that the doctor will get paged at some point.”

Nearly five million people come downtown each year for all of the unique attractions and amenities, and this is one doctor who’s always in the house.
