He places himself in the shoes of the patient he is seeing, evaluating how their medical condition is impacting his or her life. He then uses his skills and knowledge to ensure they have the best outcomes possible.

A graduate of the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, Dr. Bruen completed residencies in surgical research and general surgery at the University of Utah.

My husband and I were both extremely impressed with every aspect of my care as a patient and his treatment as a family member. We are confident that AT LAST we will find out if something can be done and, if there is appropriate treatment, it will be successfully accomplished.

I was just seeking a consult about a particular complicated problem I am having and wanted a specialist to talk with. Although he did not have access to all my records, he did look at what was available and spoke with colleagues before we met. I appreciate his willingness to discuss my questions with me.
