Dr. Bruene is great! She's very knowledgeable and responsive to her patients needs. She listens to our concerns and provides viable options for our care. I had knee surgery 20 years ago following an injury I received playing high school sports. Dr. Bruene is the BEST orthopedic physician I've had since that time.

Dr Breune listened to my issues, was respectful of my preference not to have shoulder replacement surgery and worked with me to determine various non-surgical treatment plans. She was able to decrease my pain levels and increase my shoulder functionality.
