Dr. Bromberg is the BEST!

August 31, 2014

As usual, I had only positive feelings

August 22, 2014

I was so impressed that Dr. Bromberg took the amount of time with us that he did, knowing that he was running behind schedule. I also appreciate that he chose to forego some testing which he decided would be unnecessary at this time.

March 03, 2014

The doctor was very clinical and knowledgeable but lacked more compassion.

February 23, 2014

Dr. Bromberg really puts me at ease and makes me feel comfortable.

February 16, 2014

Dr. Bromberg knows his profession and is taking very good care of me. It is pleasure to see him and talk to him.

November 18, 2013

not good news, but very good experience

November 05, 2013

After a few mishaps on my part, Dr. Bromberg graciously met with to discuss my concerns. He fit me into his already tight schedule. He spent a lot of time with me and reviewed my history, medications, and consoled my anxieties. I trust and have confidence in Dr. Bromberg as well as Dr. Gibson and cannot express how much it meant to me and my husband that he would see me on such short notice. Everything I've heard about Dr. Bromberg was affirmed - he is amazing.

October 14, 2013

Dr. Bromberg is a top notch doctor and I appreciate him so much. He is knowledgeable, kind and a good man.

September 09, 2013

Dr. Bromberg is amazing! He takes the time to make sure all of my concerns are addressed. I have absolute confidence in the quality of medical care I receive from him. I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Bromberg as my doctor.

August 26, 2013

DR Bromberg was very professional and understood my symptoms extremely well

August 26, 2013

Dr. Bromberg has treated me for GBS/CIDP for seven years and has been exemplary in every way.

August 19, 2013

the whole staff that I saw was just the greastest people I could have ever had

August 12, 2013

bad. I honestly didn't think the doctor knew how to use the equipment for me.

July 22, 2013

Dr. Bromberg is the BEST! Wise, helpful, thorough. Always spends a lot of time with me; this time called in the pharmacist to get Rx's worked thru. Good at explaining things to med student and to me. Open to ideas and options. Patient--never impatient!

July 10, 2013

Good.

July 05, 2013

Dr Bromberg took the time and patiently addressed all our worries/concerns. It's very evident he cares about his ALS patients and their families. We came in with a "cloud over our heads" and left with the sun shining. Things were not as bad as we had thought. ;)

July 01, 2013

Bad, Bad, Bad!!!!!!!!!!

May 31, 2013

I would always recommend....

May 11, 2013

Health care has become much better than it used to be for me. In the past, I felt like I was rushed through and like the doctor didn't have much concern for my questions or willingness to help with my problems. Now, doctors and the U spend much more time with their patients, make very sure they have addressed all problems, answered all questions, invite you to call if you have anything come up before your next appointment, and are interested in helping you in anyway they can to make your health and quality of life better. To me, that personal kind of interest in very important and makes patient feel that their doctors really care about them on an individual basis.

April 22, 2013

Went through things slow enough to keep up with and seemed willing to take the time needed.

April 02, 2013

Visits always were a absolute great experience!

March 22, 2013

Dr. Gibson was wonderful - attentive, answered all questions understandably, patient. I saw Dr. Bromberg for a few minutes and he was attentive and showed care as well.

March 01, 2013

Adequate time was not spent ACCURATELY assessing my current abilities.

February 24, 2013

Seems willing to spend as much time as I need to explain situation. Although I am still frustrated by lack of progress with diagnosis.

February 17, 2013

Just a long wait for the doctor

February 11, 2013

Seen in ALS clinic and saw a range of providers, they all seemed very concerned with patient health and ways they good improve his health and meet his needs.

February 11, 2013

Doctor Bromberg is an excellent physician

January 28, 2013

Dr. Bromberg was excellent. He took the necessary time to discuss the situation with me, and then determined how he could best complete testing that would be relevant and provide answers. I was most impressed when he asked if I could return that very afternoon for the test and get things done. The test was performed and then he discussed the findings with me immediately, their implications, 'the fuzzy' part of the answer and didn't leave until he was sure I was satisfied. His is one of the most satisfying doctor visits I have had over the past month - and with 19 days in the hospital, I have had many. Kudos to Dr. Bromberg and his PA.

January 21, 2013

All are outstanding. Very glad to see Dr Krishna Sundar added to the clinic. He, like Dr Bromberg, are some of my favorite people.

January 14, 2013

I am absolutely satisfied with my care provider

January 07, 2013

treated very well

December 27, 2012

Dr Bromberg has always been concerned about my progress. He is compassionate and caring.

December 27, 2012

I walked out with no answers, no plan other than takethis pill. See ya in a year. They were not listening to me. Very frustrating. I understand doctors don't know everything. A pinched nerve after 9 months and getting worse. It's mean

November 19, 2012

I have never had a doctor that spends more one on one time than Drs. Kolb and Bromberg.

November 19, 2012

The doctor spent an hour with me but used it to pull apart my file and try to figure out the computer.

November 12, 2012

I love the ALS clinic--it is the only good part of this disease.

November 12, 2012

Dr. Bromberg almost walks on water

November 05, 2012

I HAVE BEEN VERY SATISFIED WITH MY CARE.

October 15, 2012

I feel good being listened to and the time staff takes to explain and suggest methods of coping. No other Drs (and staff) have been close to this satisfactory.

September 05, 2012

Amount of time Resident and Doctor Bromberg spent with me was exceptional. There concerns and explanations were thorough and easy to understand.

August 22, 2012

I have confidence in all the nurses & staff in the IVIg room. Amazing group of competent and cooperative people.

August 07, 2012

Everything was explained very well. Both my husband and I felt comfortable during visit. I am very impressed with all services provided.

August 07, 2012

Very impressed with concern given by care providers and suggestions for follow up.

August 06, 2012

I spent less than 10 minutes with the doctor

August 01, 2012

I would happily recommend them.

July 16, 2012

My physician always explains to me what he is doing and why. He's easy to talk with about my condition. If I have extra questions he will listen to them. I have complete confidence in my physician and would recommend him to anyone.

July 13, 2012

I am very impressed with the concern about my health and willingness to share information and answer questions concerning my current condition and prognosis for the future. I left with a better attitude than I've had in months.

July 09, 2012

Liked our visit, and felt we received answers to our symptoms.

July 09, 2012

Dr Bromberg seemed to dismiss my feelings and concerns. I had heard he was the guru of neurology by a friend who's husband was treated by him, but I didn't find this to be the fact.

June 29, 2012

The staff is very professional and thorough and we are always treated very well. No complaints with the care provided; however, need to address the "wait" time.Our family loves the staff and we have a great deal of respect and appreciate all the care we have been provided.

June 09, 2012

it was a good experience!

May 10, 2012

My experience was excellent.

May 09, 2012

It was a really good experience.

May 04, 2012

I have had not been contacted about any kind of follow-up and am flustrated by the whole experience.

May 03, 2012

I still don't know for sure what the problem is.

April 19, 2012

all good

April 13, 2012

Dr. Bromberg is a very good listener. That is very refreshing to have a doctor who is willing to listen and then provide feedback. I enjoy my visits with Dr. Bromberg and find his counsel to be very helpful.

April 13, 2012

Have worked with Dr. Bromberg for several years and he has always taken whatever time was needed to help us with any concerns that we've had.

March 29, 2012

This visit was quick because the Doctor followed me to the room and we completed our visit for my ongoing care rapidly. Not many changes to report.

March 09, 2012

The doctor was awesome. He gave us his undivided attention, and never seemed rushed or impatient with the amount of time we took of his.

March 01, 2012

Dr bromberg himself was fine. I had to rule out nerve damage after a back injury. But they were so stuck on that my back injuring had no conisidence with the numbness that occurred at the exact same time. Just felt like they didn't care about me as a patient. When I left and said thank you and goodbye they just stood there. Felt totally neglected.

February 16, 2012

Dr. Bromberg was really good and informative.

February 15, 2012

The Dr. spoke to me and used words I could understand. I feel he honestly cares about my progress and my understanding of this disease.

February 02, 2012

It was a good experience even though I had to learn I have a bad disease.

Dr Mark Bromberg is a Professor of Neurology at the University of Utah. He received a doctoral degree in Neurophysiology from the University of Vermont and completed a fellowship at the University of Washington focusing on sensory and motor integration. He became an Assistant Professor at Columbia University, New York and later at the University of Michigan focusing on basic sensory and motor research. He received his medical degree and his neurology residency training from the University of Michigan. He then merged his basic research interests with neurology by completing a fellowship in clinical neurophysiology at the University of Michigan. He was an Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan before moving to the University of Utah in 1994.

His clinical interests are in neuromuscular disorders and electrodiagnosis (EMG). Within neuromuscular disorders his focus is on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), peripheral neuropathies, and myasthenia gravis. He has co-edited a book on peripheral neuropathies. He directs the Motor Neuron Disease/ALS clinic and co-directs the Muscular Dystrophy Association clinic at the University of Utah. Within electrodiagnosis his focus is on advanced EMG techniques as they can be applied to improving diagnostic certainty.

His research interests are on the clinical care of ALS patients and developing new electrodiagnostic techniques. The Motor Neuron Disease/ALS at the University of Utah is designated by the Muscular Dystrophy Association as a specialty care clinic. The clinic participates in clinical drug trials for ALS. He is active in research on issues related to quality of life for ALS patients and caregivers and is co-editor of a book that will be published soon on quality of life in neurodegenerative diseases. He has been invited to lecture on ALS at national and international ALS conferences.

Dr Bromberg has worked to develop and advance several EMG techniques. One is motor unit number estimation (MUNE) that is an electrodiagnostic technique that provides unique information that is helpful in the diagnosis and tracking of changes in ALS. Another is quantitative EMG (QEMG) that takes advantages of computer processing to refine EMG signals. He has published numerous articles in the field and organized and hosted two international symposia on MUNE and QEMG with publication of the proceedings. He received the 2011 Distinguished Researcher Award from the American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine.

Dr Bromberg has published over 120 articles and 30 book chapter, and has edited or co-edited 4 books. He is on he editorial board of Muscle & Nerve, Journal of Clinical Neuromuscular Diseases, and Journal of Clinical Neurophysiology, and serves as an ad hoc reviewer for 12 other journals.

He is very active in teaching and mentorship. He has received departmental teaching awards from the University of Michigan and the University of Utah. He serves as the School of Medicine’s 3rd year neurology clerkship. He has put together a web site (eneuroinfo.com) that includes a primer of common neuromuscular diseases and is writing a primer of EMG for residents and fellows. He is director of the Clinical Neuromuscular Fellowship Program that has trained over 20 fellows. He has been a mentor to graduate students, medical students, residents, fellows and faculty, and is the chair of the department’s Retention, Promotion and Tenure committee.
