No bedside manner

I understand that sometimes there are medical conditions that cannot be fixed and apparently, mine is one of them. I went to his office with some hope not knowing what to expect. Dr. Brunton showed no compassion while dashing my hopes and seemed irritated that I bothered him.

Excellent experience!!

Had extreme pain at the base of my thumb where thumb and wrist meet. Dr Brunton performed outpatient surgery and after several weeks with a splint until healed it is as good as ever - like it never happened.Would (and have) highly recommend Dr Brunton.
