Patient Comments (1)
in Santa Cruz, CA |
I was referred to Dr. Brunelli by my PCP after I suddenly began having symptoms of neuropathy in my feet and lower legs - this was a little over a year ago. I've been seeing him since that time, and have developed a very high level of trust with him, finding a rare combination of competence, compassion, good judgment, openness, and decisiveness. He has helped me enormously in helping me cope with chronic pain and finding the best combination of treatments to make my condition bearable.
