In my opinion, he does not have a patient's best interest. Find another doctor!

I would give his bedside manner a "10" if possible
in Johns Island, SC |
Very knowledgeable as he has many years of experience. Sense of humor as well. Nice smile.

I realize Dr Bumgartner has to give patients bad news on a regular basis, but his delivery of bad news to our family seemed very clinical and uncaring. I wish he could have been more in tune with our devastation at the diagnosis of our immediate family member. It also would have been helpful if he had spent a little more time with us after giving us the diagnosis. We barely had time to digest what he said before we were rushed out of the office.
