Great Doctor

So far, my experience with Dr Trumees and his nurse Kelly, have been excellent. He visited with me for an hour, describing in great detail what kind of fusion surgery I would need, and had a Great bedside manner. Kelly returns my calls on the same day and is friendly and informative. I have had no problems getting an appointment and the office staff has been courteous and efficient. I would rate my experience here as 5 stars.

the Friendly Giant

When I first met Dr. Truumees I was advised that they referred to him int he office as "The Friendly Giant". That is a perfect description - he is really tall and has enormous hands. He was very caring and understood that the pain that I was in needed ot be ended quickly. Within one month of my first visit with him I was ready to have the operation that relieved almost all of my pain. Pain that I had been suffering with for more than two years, but had been trying to ignore. I would recommend him to anyone suffering from low back pain. He is great!
