Awesome 👍

With Out Dr J. Bruce, I would be Dead!!

05/07/2024

Dr Bruce is respectful and helps you feel at ease.

04/30/2024

The doctor seemed very busy, a bit hurried. When he explained my condition and remedies he didn't spend much time giving me enough details about different options of treatments. He said he doesn't perform some optional procedures because the machines cost too much. Made me feel like he isnt interested in providing the best possible care due to cost.

03/07/2024

Cleanliness of lobby, interior space and exam room was apparent and appreciated, including ADA door to lobby. *NO ADA exterior doors to the front enterance of the office building. Doors are heavy and require wheelchairs and walkers to ask for assistance from other ambulatory patients. Unfortunate that this accommodation could not have been included during last years construction
