Dr. Bruno pressured me to have an induction so my baby’s birth would be on his time instead of my body’s. Once I went into labor naturally he asked the nurses to give me pitocin without ever confirming this with me. I DO NOT recommend Dr. Bruno if you want any say over your labor and delivery.

I needed to find a surgeon to do a Hysterectomy and Rectocele repair. I felt blessed to find Dr. Bruno. I was very anxious and needed someone that I could feel confident with. He listens and explains everything. You never feel rushed. The day of surgery all of the nurses stated how great of a Dr. he was. The office is run efficiently. He returns messages quickly. If you are having concerns and need to be seen, he gets you in right away. I feel he is an excellent surgeon and really cares about you.

Dr Bruno is a kind patient physician who delivered both my kids. And he remembered them and asks about them and my Mom(who thought she was his assistant while I was in labor lol). He answers all my questions and when procedures were necessary he explained them in great detail. I trust him and look forward to the day when my daughter will have a baby I trust him to deliver my grandkids.

Very happy I decided to go to Doctor Bruno, as most Of my family does too. He is extremely knowledgeable in his field and it makes it easier to trust him during such an important time. During my pregnancy he explained everything to Me as it came up and addressed any questions I had thoroughly. Was quick in sending over paperwork, nursing staff was super friendly, And when it came time to deliver he was there checking on me and came quickly when there were complications that resulted in a c section in the middle of the night. It was easy to trust that my baby and I were in good hands when it came time to deliver. He makes the best decision for the mother and child. I would highly recommend him.

I moved to this practice around 15w. Nursing staff was very rude to me & was dropped for refusing care from one nurse! Was also given a hard time about needing back brace due to pain so I could continue to work. Knowing I had back problems before my pregnancy. After that my pain wasn't real. Questioned why I didn't find another doctor closer to me since there's plenty in buffalo. Mind you I don't live in buffalo. I told him how my job continued to give me heavy groups and combative residents how

While be delivered to the emergency room or an emergency c-section, was asked if I wanted my son to have be circumcised by Dr. Bruno. Even though I had no idea what the sex of the baby was, a nurse needed to correct him and said, if it’s a boy you mean, right doctor? In addition, while I was being cut open, Dr. Bruno said to another doctor - ah, it’s so nice not to have to cut into so much fat, isn’t doc?

I drive over an hr to his office and I will continue to. He is extremely intelligent, kind, professional, and straight forward. I can ask him him anything and trust that he will give me the best advice. I use to see to his father before he took over the practice. He delivered my last 4 and his father my 1st 2. I am never rushed when I need more time to ask questions. To me there is no other dr for me and my daughters will see him when they are ready for an ob/gyn.

My first experience with pregnancy/childbirth was with Dr.Bruno. His Staff was always friendly. I never had to wait to see him. Through the "my chart" I was able to send messages in which he promptly responded. I had a great delivery with good bedside manor. I would recommend Dr.Bruno.

He has a great bedside manner. Addresses concerns without making you feel embarrassed. Performed a partial hysterectomy on me, and was caring and suuportive throughout the process. I'm amazed at how little time you spend in his waiting room...once, I was out before my scheduled appointment time. He has always been competent and sensitive. Highly recommend.

An egregious office error left me standing in the hospital being told I was having a miscarriage. (I wasn't) He immediately quipped back that his office made no mistake, and only later had his office call to apologize about the serious mistake they did in fact make. Next visit was terse and dismissive. Switched doctors. If he could get over his ego, he'd be a great doctor.

Dr.Bruno is an amazing Dr. I highly recommend him for anyone needing gynocological surgery. He is an amazing Dr. He was kind and caring every step of the way. He was very informative about my surgery and all the procedures. And as a plus he's pretty cute too. He's definitely deserves a 5 star rating. ??

Dr. Bruno has a way of making what can be an uncomfortable visit, comfortable. He is very compassionate, caring, and he does not make you feel embarrassed to ask questions. He throws an occasional joke in during a visit, which also helps cut some tension. I would highly reccomend him!

Dr. Bruno ignored my requests for further testing and complaints of heavy periods stating that was normal. I switched doctors and within my first month at my new doctor a 4 lb fibroid was found in my uterus as a result of a simple sonogram Dr. Bruno refused to do. It was so large it nearly killed me, resulting in 4 days in ICU for blood loss after nearly having a hysterectomy to stop the bleeding. Dr. Bruno ignored me for years and it almost cost me my life and the life of my future children.
