Dr. Brightwell more than lives up to his excellent reputation! Not only did he perform successful surgeries on me, he noticed something in a chest x-ray and led to successful discovering and beating lung cancer! I feel that he helped so much in saving my life! I do recommend him to everyone!

Very knowledgeable, confident and trustworthy person that takes time to explain both good and bad od your situation. He offers his opinions and guidance to aide in decision making. Dr. Brightwell performed surgery on myself and I was very pleased with the procedure and his overall treatment.

Dr. Brightwell is very good at what he does.very understanding with me, easy to talk to. I've been with him for about 20 years. He tells you up front about the procedure. He doesn't like for me to go thru pain. I've never had a problem with him or his staff. Wonderful staff he has.
