Patient Comments (3)
Columbia, mo |
Horrible provider. He had no focus on patient centered care, did not consult with the patient about treatment options prior to treatment, and left computer unlocked with the patient alone in the room (confidentiality breach). His incompetence pales only in comparison to University hospital's as a whole.

Dr Bridgeman is kind, understanding and does his best to be positive without giving false hope. Did a great job and I'm very happy with my outcome.
in Centralia, MO |
Dr. Bridgeman repaired my son's foot, after an almost full amputation from a lawnmower. His caring manner and ability to explain the procedures honestly with a realistic outcome was refreshing. He's made a full recovery and saved my son's foot.
