Unfortunate for me that this is my second time with Dr. Trumble. Lucky for me that he is the absolute best surgeon for hand injuries and has published many text books used by universities on the subject among his many accolades. His staff, facility, and the Eastside Surgery Center are exceptional. More than highly recommended.

I was a patient of Dr Trumble's in 2017-2018. To my surprise he remembered details that I had forgotten. As a patient it warmed my heart and boosted my confidence in his plan of care for me.

For me, Dr. TRUMBLE is a great professional. When I first arrived at his clinic, he made me feel important. He did studies before making a diagnosis, and on the day of my surgery, he explained to my wife all the procedure that I was going to do. and he himself gave him his personal number so that my wife could ask him anything about my surgery, don't hesitate to go to his CLINIC, you will have a great experience.

Dr. Trumble is the best hand specialist in the area. He was very friendly, as was his staff. The wait was a bit long but I got the feeling he stays with each patient to insure all questions are answered. From the reception desk to Dr. Trumble, the atmosphere of caring was evident. Quite often, other Specialists have you see their Medical Assistant rather then direct contact w/the doctor/surgeon. That wasn't the case @ Bellevue Hand Surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Trumble & his staff.

I knew from talking with people who had previous experience with Dr. Trumble that he would be the best choice for my hand surgery and it turned out that I was right.  I don't think I could have done any better with anyone else and it could have easily have been much worse because of the involvement of the nerve and because the course of action was not straightforward without first surgically opening the site to determine the ultimate course of action.Dr. Trumble clearly has the knowledge, expertise, experience, critical-thinking and ability for rapid decision-making and information processing needed for my situation.I play the piano at a high level and the function of my hands to allow me to continue to play the piano at a high level is extremely important to me.Although healing isn't yet complete, it appears that I will recover complete function of my hand.  Instrumental in recovery were his hand therapists who were all excellent and his office staff who keep things organized and efficient.

My experiences with Dr. Trumble have been the best! Over the years he has performed joint replacement surgeries on my seriously deformed arthritic fingers. The results have been excellent, both in terms of appearance and in terms of function. As a patient I feel seen and heard. He listens closely, brings a generous amount of intellectual skill and knowledge to bear, and has been kind and easy in communicating with me. Everything about his office and staff communicate excellence and superb patient care. I leave feeling well cared for every time."
