I have had 2 spinal sugeries and will only go back to Dr. Brumett!! He has a wonderful bedside manner, all of my questions were answered, and he fully supported me to be in charge of my own timeline for surgery (ie. trying pt 1st and surgery as a last option). I had my last surgery on the day of a big snow storm - when we showed up, he was already there (surgery was for 7am - check in shortly after 6am), but we had to wait for the ansethologist (spelling?) to come in. He spent part of our time waiting talking w/ me, and making jokes to make me feel more at ease (as this was my 2nd surgery w/ him and we had had many appts. before this). I have recommended him to many people I know, and would go back to him in a heartbeat, if needed!
