Exceptional surgeon

Dr. Trumble has operated on me multiple times for varying conditions. I have a fair amount of medical fluency and can say that Dr. Trumble is an exceptionally knowledgeable, exacting surgeon, who loves his work and constantly seeks a better way to do things. If you need a surgeon, particularly a hand/wrist surgeon where skill is borne of a combination of experience and competence, then Dr. Trumble is what you want.

The Best of the Best-hands down!!

Dr. Trumble literally gave me back my hands! Both of my wrists were in terrible pain 24-7 due to bad arthritis and carpal tunnel. I had surgery on each wrist 6 months apart in 2016. Going on 3 yrs. later, I am no longer in pain all the time, and can do most anything again. His professionalism, bedside manner, knowledge, skills, sense of humor, and a great staff, earned my 5 stars in every category! I'd like to end with a very heart felt thanks to the good Dr. (Miracle Worker) and a shout out to Allen & Clyde (and everyone else there who's names escape me at the moment)

Be Your own advocate

He suggested surgery right away and did not pursue conservative treatment first. He sent me back to work with no restrictions or splints and I was in so much pain in a week I had to go back when I was told "I don't think he realized you were L&I". Very disappointing. Condescending and too busy to listen usual characteristics of a good surgeon.

Five Stars

Over the past year, Dr Thomas Trumble has operated on both of my elbows (torn tendons) and on my left hand (trigger finger). Dr Trumble has been recognized over the years as one of the top hand surgeons in the Seattle area and deservedly so. From my first visit, it was obvious to me that I was placing my care in the hands of a very skilled and compassionate doctor. A shout out to Dr Trumble's staff, 5 stars for them and the physical therapists.
