Dr. Carttar is one of the best diagnostictions I’ve ever been to. He worked tirelessly to find out what my problem was and then worked just as hard to find a solution for me. He is one of the kindest and most caring people I’ve ever known.

Outstanding experience. He was able to help me. I had seen many other doctors and was still miserable. He took the time to figure out my problem and give me my life back.

HR in Little Rock, AR - Jan 07 2019

Review for Dr. De Bruyn

Do not go see this guy. He will misdiagnose you with SVT, Atrial flutter or AFib and perform unnecessary procedures on you. He should not be allowed to practice medicine anymore given his inability to diagnose correctly and function in a professional manner on a day to day basis.

Dec 22 2018

Review for Dr. De Bruyn

Brilliant man who can relate to a person with no medical knowledge. Did a heart cath and stent on my husband. We have seen him a total of 4 times and he was never late, always early. A quiet person, but will take time to answer all of your questions. Very polite. Highly recommend him.
