    in Seattle, WA |
    Dr. Bruckner and his entire team are efficient, effective and friendly. We handed Dr. Bruckner a 75 year old broken and twice repaired hip and he replaced the hip with exceptional results.
    Dr. Bruckner does not treat the conditions listed on this web page. He does not even see all his patients. I have a labral tear that is visible on a MRI, and I never got to see him for an evaluation and hear his personal opinion. And this was after 2 mos of waiting for an initial appointment. Disappointing experience. I had three appointments plus imaging through this office. There is a visible problem. I never got to see him once.
