Dr. Bumgarner or Dr. B as my mom referred to him as, is truly everything a family member would want from a Dr! My mother was diagnosed at stage four. Well she fought tooth and nail and made it 2 yrs! Dr. B helped her get there, he would present her with all the fact. When news needed to be presented he was mindful but honest. She and we trusted him, his knowledge in his field and dedication to his patients. I would recommend Dr. B if you or a family member want to fight an illness!

I saw Dr. Bumgarner his consultation was great. Trying to schedule surgery with his office not so great. I have been waiting over a week to get a date for surgery. I think the worst part is they haven't even called me back once. I am the one calling them every day. I would have scheduled that day but wanted to discuss it with my wife first. I was under the assumption that it would be no problem to call back the next day and was given a direct line to the person who schedules appointments.
