What People Say About Dr. Hunter Brumblay, MD

Please do not take your child to Dr. Brumblay if you are hopeful that they will get better. Even though he sent my son to physical therapy, he refused to re-evaluate my son when he completed rehab. He wouldn’t even see him again or speak to us and lied about what was discussed at the one and only appointment that my son had. This man’s ego is to big for real patient care.

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 professionals told me that Dr Brumblay would be their choice if they needed spinal surgery. I am so happy I chose him!

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.
