I have been seeing Dr. Bruel going on almost 10 years after I was injured in the line of duty on Thanksgiving morning in 2011. I was a Firefighter/Paramedic and we were  on the scene of a 18 wheeler accident and I had another 18 wheeler come through the scene and hit me, dragging me appropriately 65ft down the Hwy. making me lose my dominant arm and my other one is pinned together.  They said it was a miracle that I didn’t pass away.  I have had 40 surgeries and have been in severe pain since that has happened.  Dr. Bruel is  absolutely an amazing Dr with controlling my pain as much as he can!!  I will continue to use this Dr as long as needed!!

I have been Dr. Vinh's patient since he opened his clinic. I followed him from another pain management facility because he is so caring and he really listens and  asks questions. He has helped decrease the intensity of my pain by doing nerve blocks and by medication. The nerve blocks have worked so well that I rarely need medication anymore. I have recommended him to several friends and to strangers that I have learned were in need of an AWESOME Pain Management Doctor! His entire office staff is phenomenal and they are all caring and compassionate! As long as I need pain management... I will be faithful to staying with Dr. Vinh!

Dr. Vinh is an incredible doctor. His staff is always helpful and courteous. While I live in pain, I always leave his office with a smile on my face. Dr. Vinh genuinely cares about his patients. I've never ever felt like just another number on the daily docket of patients.
