I have had several surgeries with Dr. Brunellli with excellent outcomes. His office is equipped with it's own xray unit for hand and wrist injuries, which is convenient. His practice is extremely busy, which is due to his expertise and he has such a likable personality. I have seen him with elderly patients and he is very calm, reassuring, and patient.

I’ve seen Dr. Brunelli for several arthritis related problems, all of which he has treated successfully. What stands out is his compassion, the time and attention he gives to each patient. He is kind and honest - and skilled at giving a shot in the joint. Fear not! I trust him completely. The staff is warm and supportive, too, and everyone timely.

I needed an injury check after an ER visit so that I would know that my hand would be okay on an upcoming trip. He was kind, quick, and reassuring. I felt confident in his assessment. I would recommend him.

Dr. Brunelli did a wonderful job on surgery for my carpal tunnel. My surgery was scheduled within a week of my initial consultation. The procedure was fast and painless. The results were immediate, no more numb fingers. Thank you so much to Dr. Brunelli and team for your hard work.

Dr. Brunelli helped reconstruct my elbow after an injury from a fall when I was told by another surgeon there was nothing they could do to help me. He walked me through the details of my injury and surgery step by step, so I was well aware of exactly what was what was wrong and how he was going to perform the repair. He always treats me with respect and kindness, always the ultimate professional, and always with a smile and positive attitude. Thank you for everything Dr. Brunelli!

Dr. Brunelli has very warm personality. He is also highly skilled at treating my tennis elbow. I was expecting a suggestion for surgery after two shots in a year. He gave me another shot with good results so far (three weeks). The way the shot is given and find the location to shot requires a lot of skills. Hopefully this is the last shot or can last a long time.

In the past I have had a wrist surgery and a rotator cuff tear surgery with Dr. Brunelli and he is an excellent Dr., very knowledgeable, professional, great bedside manner etc./. Presently having a nerve issue in my back and boy oh boy do I wish he worked on backs. I trust him 100%. Anyone who gets to have him as a Doc is lucky IMO!
