Dr. Michael Brown, the former Houston surgeon and founder of the Brown Hand Center, was recently hospitalized after suffering a heart attack. Dr. Brown, now in Miami, was set to begin his 30 day prison sentence which stemmed from his guilty plea in his most recent legal issues related to choking a flight attendant.
