I had never heard of trigger thumb condition. I had high anxiety during my 1st appointment (I am a 64 yr old BABY). When my appointment was over I felt so calm and relaxed with whatever was to come which was surgery. I never thought I could refer to a surgery experience as pleasant but I can. It was all because of Dr.Brentlenger and his very wonderful staff. I really wish Dr Brentlinger could be my primary Doctor. He could not have a better staff. Very professional and carings. love them!

I suffered a hand injury yesterday afternoon and was transported by ambulance to a local hospital ER.The ER closed the open wound (with glass still embedded), and suggested that I see a hand surgery specialist ASAP.My husband called Dr. Brentlinger's office (by referral from my regular doctor), and he okayed his staff to work us into his busy schedule today.Just one visit, with a follow-up scheduled in 5 days, but I am blown away by his empathy, communication and professionalism.BEDSIDE MANNER!

I've had 2 surgeries with Dr. Bretlinger and both have been successful. Not only is he a great surgeon, but he has a pleasant and caring demeanor. I would go to him again for treatment. His staff (especially Sam) is most efficient and go to great lengths to accommodate a patient's needs.

Dr. Brentlinger and his team were wonderful with my wrist surgery. He has done surgery for several members of my family and does a fantastic job every time. It was very quick, his anesthesiologist did wonderful and I had no adverse reactions, my wrist healed quickly and very well. His team was also great in getting me taken care of during follow up visits. They made it very easy and stress free. If you are considering surgery, I highly recommend them!

I injured a finger on October 14,2017 while on vacation in Arkansas. Started seeing Dr. Brentlinger on October 17. After completing in house treatment I started physical therapy. Now I am doing home therapy and the results are great. At this point I give Dr. Brentlinger credit for saving my finger.

My wife saw Dr. Brentlinger after she fell and fractured her clavicle. While she was in a great deal of pain, he demonstrated excellent knowledge of what she was going through and provided the plan that would direct her healing. It has been 4 weeks since first seeing him and his approach was right on target. She continues to improve and the pain is almost gone.

His whole office staff is amazing and very professional. I have never had to sit in the waiting room for more than 10 minutes. I recently had surgery, easiest surgery I have ever had! The staff at Baylor Orthopedic and Spine Hospital of Arlington were exceptional as well. I will definitely visit Dr. Brentlinger’s office again and tell all of my friends/family. Thank you Dr. Brentlinger and staff!

I am seeing Dr. Brentlinger for CTS. He has great patient communication and is very thorough. He scheduled me for additional testing and was able to get in right away for the test and a follow up appointment.

I'm four years passed the day Dr Brentlinger mended my broken and shattered wrist. I had found the last patch of ice in Arlington after the last big ice storm. Happy to say I have had no side affects, pain, or stiffness-even with the change of weather. I'm a hairdresser by trade and went back to work with no difficulty. I have high praise for Dr Brentlingers work and expertise. Thank you for putting me back together again so perfectly. I will always appreciate you. ?? Barbara Davis
