After 6 angioplasties from another hospital, we were referred to Dr. Bruen to research other ways to improve my husband's ability to walk. Our other physician did not apprise us of the dangers of continuing to have angioplasties but Dr. Bruen consulted with us for an hour and prescribed medication rather than engaging in invasive surgery - the outcomes have been very very good. Dr. Bruen was thorough and his intelligence was luminous. Highly recommend.

My mom had surgery with Dr. Bruen on her abdominal aneurysm. We came to Dr. Bruen as a 2nd opinion as we were very unhappy with our original doctor. Dr. Bruen was so caring and took such great care of her. She has many medical problems that Dr. Bruen was able to navigate and still perform her surgery with an excellent outcome. She was so suprised that she felt so good right after the surgery. Our family cannot say enough great things about Dr. Bruen and his staff!
