Dr. Armbruster was extremely helpful in the recovery of hand laceration. He was not difficult to get an appointment with. Once I saw him, he knew the exact treatment that was needed and followed me closely through my treatment to make sure I was making progress.

Dr. Armbruster is great. He spends time in the exam room evaluating and discussing treatment options and answering questions without the appointment feeling rushed or unimportant. Very up front and honest.
