Dr. Bruneteau really does a wonderful job. This is my second procedure done by him and the results are amazing. Dr. Bruneteau takes the time to explain the procedure, he listens to your questions and does his best at making his patients feel comfortable. He is totally professional but yet very caring.

He did an Excellant job,explained everything step by step answered any questions I had.Very friendly.The Nursing Staff was great. Still in the process of payment ! Medicare coverd but we are appealing because they denied part of it because they felt it was Costmetic and not medical. Thinking because it was coded as costmetic at the time I didnt have a letter from my MD yet or Chiropractor that referred me to do this procedure I have copies from both if you should need.So Dont have a final payment plan till after medicare has paid their share.We dont go back till feb 2014 so guess we will dicusss that with them?

Dr. Bruneteau was complete and concise with his assessment and the actual procedure that he used on me to fix my bi-lateral gyno. I was fully confident in his skills and his ability to listen to what I expected from the procedure. I love the fact that I never felt rushed out of the office. The procedure went great and I am completely happy with the overall experience with him. I would highly recommend him to anyone who might be having the same procedure. You get what you pay for, and I am a happy customer!

Dr. Bruneteau was the greatest Dr. from the very first day all the way up to today!!! I will definitely use him for any future surgeries I may have!!! The 3 hour drive is worth it for me to have a Dr. who actually cares about you and your well-being!!! Thank you again Dr. Bruneteau!

Dr. Bruneteau and his staff were wonderful from the beginning! I had several consultations before scheduling my surgery. Dr. Bruneteau was patient and I never felt rushed to make a decision. After my surgery, I had no problems getting a hold of a nurse to answer any questions I may have. I had a breast lift, augmentation, tummy tuck and liposuction. I would recommend Dr. Bruneteau for any procedure needed-great bed side manner and he is so personable!

Dr. Bruneteau came highly recommended from a family member and I immediately felt comfortable with him. He explained the procedure to me and gave me honest feedback on size. He was always happy to answer any questions/concerns I had and I never felt like he was in a rush to get to the next patient. I would highly recommend Dr. Bruneteau for any kind of procedure.

Dr. Bruneteau and his staff have been amazing! Being born with an anomaly I knew I trusted Dr. Bruneateau from the start. He went to school with the same surgeon that have done all my prior surgeries, so I knew I was in the best hands possible. He answered all my questions and concerns and was very positive he could help me. He was never pushy about getting the rhinoplasty done and after weeks of thinking about it, I decided to go ahead and do the rhinoplasty along with the cleft lip revision. I am SO happy I did! I didn't want a "Hollywood" nose, but wanted to look more like my family. So Dr. Bruneateau used my mother has his model and everything was perfect! I completely recommend Dr. Bruneateau and his staff for cranial facial surgeries.

Dr. Bruneteu was a caring and understanding doctor that listened to what I was wanting with the results of the procedure. He took into account my body's unusual set up and able to make my breast extremely natural. I am SO happy with them and they wouldn't look this way if it weren't for Dr. Bruneteu. I'm incredibly appreciative to him and his staff. They were incredibly respectful and well mannered every time I entered the office. Thank you ALL!

Dr. Bruneteau is an awesome doctor. Very competent, very thorough, very knowledgeable. He repaired a prior liposuction procedure that didn't heal well and the overall experience was so much better! I felt like I was in excellent hands from start to finish (including pre and postop) and am very pleased with the care I received and the results!

Dr. Bruneteau has an excellent reputation for a good reason: he is knowledgeable and professional, provides a no-pressure approach, listens carefully to concerns, and gives honest advice about expectations and risks. Before going to Dr. Bruneteau, I researched his credentials and was very impressed. At this 3-month point after surgery, I am even more impressed with his skill and the quality of post-op care. I highly recommend Dr. Bruneteau for anyone considering facial surgery.

Dr. Bruneteau was so pleasant to talk to he actually talked to me not at me. We looks in your eyes and that makes me feel he listens and understands. I think he is great. I have and would recommend him everyday.

He was a wonderful doctor and made me feel very comfortable. He was extra friendly to my son who attended some appointments with me, and eased my nerves the morning of my surgery. I have nothing but good to say about Dr.Bruneteau and his staff.

I had an amazing experience at Surgical Images! I have been wanting breast augmentation and hip/thigh lipo for many years. I went to my consultation with a long list of questions. Dr. Bruneteau answered them all before I even got to ask them. He listened to me and what I wanted and was very honest about what he could do. I actually had 2 other consultations with other doctors and just couldn't find the comfort I was looking for. Even though it is a 3 hour drive for me one way to Dr. Bruneteau's office it was worth it. The staff is amazing and every one is always so kind. I had breast augmentation and lipo at the same time and was back to clinical's (nursing student) 4 days post op! I would recommend Dr. Bruneteau any day to anyone! I am now saving for a tummy tuck and he will be the one to perform that as well.

He listened to what I wanted and the end results proved that. I would highly recommend Dr. Bruneteau to anyone that wants to have this procedure done. I am so happy with the results and I am so glad I had it done. This procedure has changed my life!

I had my consultation with Dr. Bruneteau. He is amazing. He made me feel totally comfortable. He told me all about himself and his education and experience. He was amazing.

Dr. Bruneteau had a bedside manner we often dont see from doctors. He was never hurried or in a rush. We actually spent less time talking about the lipo and more time laughing and exchanging jokes! He took time to answer my questions and even made a personal follow up call the night of my procedure. He was very professional and respectful of my privacy. I am very grateful I found such an excellent physician.

Dr. Bruneteau is wonderfully knowledgeable, answers all questions and really took his time with me. He made me feel very comfortable and I was confident I was in good hands. He answered all questions I had, to the point, that I felt very comfortable going into the procedure. I will definitely return to him when I decide to have more plastic surgery!

Please see "Review Your Experience and Procedure" above. Dr. Bruneteau was very kind and committed to making his patients' experiences positive and successful. I believe I was treated with dignity and respect.

Dr. Bruneteau was the answer to my prayers. He truly is a master at his craft and his bedside manner couldn't be better. I went to him because a friend of mine had him perform the surgery a year earlier with amazing results. I no longer have the pain that ailed me everyday and am able to exercise like I did 20 years ago. Thank you so much Dr. Bruneteau and his staff, for meeting and exceeding my expectations! I wouldn't recommend going anywhere else!

Dr. Bruneteau was awesome. I told him what size and he didn't try to talk me into anything else. He answered all my questions. He is very easy to talk to. The staff was also amazing. Follow-up appointments never had to wait to be seen. Nice to have a Dr. not over booked.
Posted by TeriA
Dr Bruneteau was wonderful. He made me feel at ease, and told me what to expect with the surgery, and aftercare. I went to him originally because he did a breast reduction for a family member of mine, and she was happy with him as well. I would gladly recommend Dr Bruneteau to my family and friends. He and his staff were professional, caring, and always greeted me with a smile.

I felt very comfortable with Dr. Bruneteau, he was my surgeon on a previous surgery and I was very happy with the outcome. When I made the decision to do the "Mommy Makeover" I knew I wanted Dr. Bruneteau to preform the procedure. He explains every aspect of the surgery and is very honest regarding outcomes and expectations which is reassuring.

Dr. Bruneteau is an amazing Doctor who takes the time to help you understand the procedures you are interested in. He is extremely compassionate and wants the best outcome for you. I find him to be honest, caring, respected and has integrity. He is the type of Doctor that wants you to feel comfortable not only at Clinic and also in your own skin. If you want a Doctor that truly cares about you, then Dr. Bruneteau is the one for you!

Research on web. Dr. Bruneteau is an artist. He knew what I was hoping to achieve even more than I did. I received a browlift, blephs, and mini facelift. He is patient, attentive and his skill is remarkable. I would trust him with any future work I wanted to do and I would highly recommend him as well. The nurses were fabulous as well.

Dr Bruneteau did a great job with my tummy tuck and breast lift. My tummy tuck scar is really low, so I know I will not have any issues with any swimsuit I purchase in the future. My breasts were quite large and heavy, and I am amazed every day at how wonderful and perky they look, as well as completely natural. His staff is absolutely fabulous and I just love my nurse, Autumn! She has been extremely patient and helpful with all of my post op questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend Dr Bruneteau to anybody looking to have these same procedures done!

Simply amazing!!I have so MANY good things to say about the staff, the nurses and Dr. Bruneteau. From Sheila and Anne (insurance and consultation set up questions) to Brande and Sara at front desk, an astonishing nurse Nikki to the PA's, Amanda And Betsey, I felt as no question was obnoxious or off-putting, they really helped with the healing & recovery phase, it did not stop post surgery.
