Dr Brightfield is the most conscientious and knowledgeable Doctor. He listens and ask questions to help solve your health issues. He follow ups when you have any tests taken, and will explain their results. Never have to wait, always punctual, so very considerate. His office staff is also kind and caring. If you are looking for a new doctor, I highly recommend him.

My wife has been a patient of Dr. Brightfield's for some time now. When we first came to the area, it was difficult to find a good primary care provider. Our first experiences with others were not positive (evaluation based not just as a patient but a health care provider as well). Then came Dr. Brightfield! He is not only well qualified from a medical point of view but truly, truly cares about his patients and does everything he can for them as well as working well with specialists.
