Not only does Dr. B explain everything, he gave me sedation before the epidural which helped with my nerves about the shot. The office has a relaxing attmosphere and the staff are very helpful. My epidural at his office was way cheaper than my last one because he did it right there in the office. They made go to a day surgery for my last one.

I have been seeing Dr. Bruning for several years and have been very pleased with my care. He is trying PRP therapy on my hips and sacroiliac joints. He keeps up-to-date on the latest medical innovations and explains everything so I can easily understand.

My prior pain doctor switched to doing his procedures in an ASC which means I would have to pay an additional $500 out of my pocket. He referred me to Dr. Bruning and I only have to pay my regular copay. Not only does it save me a lot of money but Dr. Bruning was terrific!! He took lots of time to explain my procedure and I didn't feel a thing! The office was clean and attractive and his staff are very caring.
Clean and beautiful office. Friendly staff. Great nurses who know alot. Dr. Bruning was so good at explaining my problem and what could be done to help me. I loved the sedation. It really calmed my nerves.
I had a positive experience from start to finish. I have been in a lot of pain for 7 years and Dr. Bruning took it away. His staff is wonderful and a joy to be around.
in Lee's Summit, MO |
I would recommend Dr. Bruning because he listened to me and figured out my problem when other doctors couldn't. I have had epidurals before and they were painful! His epidural didn't hurt at all!!!!! The staff is wonderful and really care.
in Overland Park, KS |
Knows how to apologize, that's his string point. Had no sympathy towards my needs what so ever. I had heard good things about him but now I see his true colors. I recommended him to several people and for that I apologize for the discomfort I'm certain I caused you. I wish I could do more than apologize but that's what Dr. Bruning's office did for me after making an appointment 3 weeks ago, confirming it yesterday and than calling me today to say we cancelled your appointment. repulsive
