Dr. Brumbaugh is wonderful! I am a new patient, and cannot say enough about him and his staff. So kind and professional, and make you feel very comfortable. They immediately got me in and called to remind me of appointment. Dr. Brumbaugh went so far above and beyond the normal in helping me to get in with a specialist in Graves disease. He is true to his word, and when he says he will follow up and call you...that's what he does. I would very highly recommend Dr. Brumbaugh.

Dr. Brumbaugh is incredible! He is never rushed, listens to my problems, does a thorough exam and explains my condition so I can easily understand what is going on. He involves me in the treatment decision, which i appreciate, and explains all options in terms anyone can grasp. His office is one of the most pleasant I've ever been in and his office staff is just as incredible as he is. I hope he never retires! I can't imagine going anywhere else.
