My previous experience 6 years ago was awful so I was hesitant to come back but I had so many friends recommend Dr.Bredthauer and his team that I decided to try again. Although I can't get exactly what I want at this time, my situation was explained to me professionally and compassionately. I left feeling much better about my situation with greater clarity and hope!

My experience was excellent with the doctors and with the office in the hospital. I was very pleased with the outcome. The people were very kind listening. And caring I would recommend them. To anyone. Thank you.
