Dr. Brunton is THE BEST! He performed Carpal tunnel surgery on right wrist last year and I am having the left wrist done next week. Dr. Brunton is compassionate and personable. I would not go anywhere else.

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.
