19/06/11 5 5 5 5 My husband and I cannot give this Dr. enough accolades. He is the most kind, compassionate,informative, and helpful Dr. we have ever had the pleasure of having a business relationship. My wife had a serious and deadly illness and Dr. Brunicardi was there for months with help, kindness, knowledge. Since that time he has seen us through many health problems and we are living life to the fullest because of his expertise. C.R. &Polly Ferguson  Respond

05/09/10 4 5 5 5 I have required 11 surgeries. He performed the last two. He discovered abnormalities that were not found by others. He is one of the best skilled surgeon I have ever known. He came highly recommended by his peers and colleagues alike. He also has a bedside manner like no other! I need another surgery and he is the only one I trust my life to. He is a Godly man, in both word and deed.

04/08/09 5 4 5 5 Saved my life. Plus I just loved him. He acted as if he cared about all of his patients. His resident was also extremely polite, knowledgeable, and attentive. He did refer me to a plastic surgeon that I would not send my worst enemy to. I truly regret not asking Dr. Brunicardi for someone else. This PS disfigured me for life.

05/06/08 5 5 5 5 I cannot say enough about this doctor. He is an angel. He has THE best bedside manners you will ever see. He is just amazing! Was in St. Lukes for over 2 weeks w/ pancreatitis and gallbladder problems. He visited everyday along with his students, and made me feel so comfortable. He was never in a rush and talked with me about what was happening and what we should do every step of the way. Without him and his staff, I would have not had such a great outcome. I recently had my gallbladder removed by him, and never felt like I had had surgery. No soreness, bruising, or pain. That shows that he knows his stuff! I think he is awesome!!
