Dr Bruggen has gone above and beyond expectations in the past when I was having challenges with and an allergic reaction to my medication to be available to assist me and call in alternative medications and offer advice. He even responded to my emails throughout the weekend!
*Dr. Braggen called me that afternoon to give me blood test results several weeks later to let one know he had received my records. I've never had a doctor do this before.
*Dr. Bruggen is fantastic! He was able to explain my results/condition in terms I send my husband could understand. He had genuine concern in my case - at least that's how I felt! I was so thankful I found him and this office!
