This office is one of the most professional practices I've ever been in as a patient. You are greeted by a lovely young lady who is all smiles and very bubbly. The nurses are wonderful, even when you call them 20 times like I did. Dr. Bruning has no peers. He is extremely outgoing. He talks to you in plain English and has a tremendous personality. I would recommend this practice to everyone I know.

Dr. Bruning has kept me active and feeling good for over a decade now. I have 3 degenerative discs in my lumbar spine that have caused pain of all sorts in my back and lower body. Sometimes it has been unbearable. EVERY TIME Dr. Bruning as known what to do and helped me return to my active life. I'm a practicing engineer and will turn 69 years old this year. Because of Dr. Bruning, I feel like I can move toward retirement with anticipation of having some great times ahead. THANK YOU.

Cecil Kingsley in Lawrence, KS – Jun 22, 2017
I had experienced pain in my lower leg ever since I tore ankle ligaments 40 years ago. After explaining the pain symptoms to Dr. Bruning, he quickly diagnosed the problem and remedy. I can't believe I waited so long to be pain free and I can't say enough good things about this physician

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.

Ann Drake in Overland Park, KS – Feb 27, 2016
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.

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.

C. Drake in Lee's Summit, MO – Feb 25, 2016
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
