I call Dr. Brunton the King of Westmoreland County! He is personable and really takes time with you. But perhaps even more importantly, he is a fist class surgeon!

He was the most insensitive physician I've ever had the displeasure of meeting. He was unable to help with the problem I'm having with my hands and instead of gently breaking the news, he seemed irritated that I even came to see him. He was condescending and rude.

Does not take time to explain treatment. Rushes to surgery. Does not seem like a nice fellow, and staff are downright quick, rude, and don't want to be there.

I've seen him in the North Huntingdon office twice. I had to put off surgery the first time because of family matters but still came back. The staff was very nice and informative. The PA took everything I said seriously and related that info to the doctor. Brunton spent a long time with me both times and explained everything as many times as I asked. He explained that since I've waited so many years (30) to have this done that it would take longer to see results. I left understanding everything.

Went to see Dr. Brunton with a severed tendon in my thumb, which left me unable to bend my thumb on that hand. Dr. Brunton preformed two surgeries on the thumb and I am amazed at the difference and outcome! I'm almost back to 100%. He is one of the best! His staff is totally awesome, the nurses, PA, and assistants!!! There is not enough credit that can be given to this Dr and staff!! Thank you!!!
Dr. Brunton is a great dr.
