Patient Comments (5)

I cannot say enough about Dr Brumblay. He preformed a minimal invasive spinal fusion on me. It was a long difficult surgery but it has been so worth it. I went from continuous back pain to none. Dr Brumblay shows compassion, explains everything and is an excellent surgeon. So many health...more

He's a wonderful, caring, compassionate doctor who explains everything in detail and shows you on your tests what's wrong and why it's a problem. I recommend him all the time! He also went to Harvard and did his 6 years at U of M. What else can you ask for?

Dr. Brumblay is very thorough with his exams and I was in terrible pain in my back and leg before my surgery. I had no more pain in my back and it is such a relief. He is so good to explain and be there when I needed questions answered.
