Dr. Brutlag is very knowledgeable but when she doesn't have the answers she takes the time to consult with other physicians and facilities for information. She truly cares about you as a person, takes the time she needs for a thorough exam and prescribes the treatment she feels you need not just what the insurance company wants. I appreciate her honesty and her caring manner even when she has to give you bad news. I've been her patient for 25 years and have referred my children, my mother and various friends to her for answers and all have been happy with her ability to finally give them a diagnosis and a doable treatment plan.
Dr. Brutlag is a wonderful, truly caring person and physician. She treats me with honesty, patience and respect...doesn't make me feel like just any patient on her daily schedule...I like that she doesn't have to read my entire patient history at beginning of each appt. to recall info of my condition and treatment plan, even when I haven't seen her in a while. She was the first specialist I had gone to, after wasting time and money on so many others, who believed me when I said I wasn't imagining my pain or other myriad of symptoms...said that certain conditions can't be diagnosed using imaging equipment or lab tests...this was the case for me...I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia several years ago, and she has been treating me off and on since then. Basically, she's simply awesome & I am so blessed to have stumbled upon her :)
