Dr. Brimacombe is an excellent physician. He provided great care when I had surgery on my lower right leg. He and his team at the Honor Health Thompson Peak Hospital Wound Clinic are very good. You could not ask for better care.

Stay as far away as possible from him

Waited one and and half hours after appointment time and was ready to leave he finally came in and then went and looked at MRI came back and gave me some dianogonius that was so vague , soft mass on bottom of foot, then sent me to another Doctor. Said it would require surgery but i said you do not cut on the bottom of feet, especially where you walk on.The first operation he did on me about 3 years ago was a failure. He remove a lump on top of my foot but missed the large one adjacent to the cut only a mm away.

Doctor's Response

I am sorry your wait time was not shorter. I can assure you the delay in your visit was a result of other patients needing extra time before you. I try to give patients the time they need to discuss their medical conditions and try not to rush them out the door. Unfortunately, this sometimes results in patients being seen later than their scheduled time. You are correct, your diagnosis was vague as is often the case with a mass or tumor found in the body. Masses often require a biopsy to make a specific diagnosis which is why I referred you to my partner who specializes in masses and tumors so as to not perform an unnecessary surgery. As you said, surgery on the bottom of the foot is undesirable. They are, however, sometimes unavoidable. I am sorry you feel your first surgery three years ago was a failure. I would be happy to re-evaluate your problem or refer you to another provider if it is still problematic. My apologies once again. Sean Brimacombe

I shattered my ankle and broke some bones in my leg after falling off a high step stool a year ago. I was taken to the Emergency Room and told I needed surgery. Being new to the area I was unfamiliar with any of the orthopedic surgeons and was scheduled with Dr Brimacombe the next morning for surgery. When he came in the room and introduced himself and told me he was going to put me in an exterior fixator. I looked at him and thought to myself that he looked to young to have any experience so I cancelled the surgery. After a couple hours on the phone with my family I decided to go ahead and let Dr Brimacombe do the surgery. He explained that there was no guarantee of the outcome and I would either need multiple surgeries or have chronic pain issues but assured me he would do his best. After the surgery I followed everything he told me to do. I want to thank him for his expertise on knowing what to do and doing it correctly. I am walking, have no chronic pain and never needed more surgery. Dr Brimacombe is very skillful at what he does. I was very fortunate to have him do my surgery and I can't thank him enough. I will definitely use him again and refer him to everyone I know.

Dr. Brimacombe was outstanding with my 12 year old son. He spent over 30 minutes talking with him in terms that he was able to understand and was very caring. And the staff was extremely helpful, caring and professional. I would recommend Dr. Brimacombe to all my my family and friends.
