“I saw Dr. Bruell regarding ankle pain from a previous injury. He ran the tests necessary to evaluate the problem. I like that he showed me the X-rays and explained what he saw there. I learned from him what I needed to do and how far I can safely push myself. I am following his advice and am doing very well. Everyone of the staff with whom I came in contact was wonderful.”
