What People Say About Dr. Bruce McCormack, MD
Reply
Dr. McCormack is far too eager to operate. He should be supervised so that he uses more conservative treatments, first. We are human beings. We are not simply items for him to make money off of. Every day for the rest of my life, I will deeply regret the day that I walked into his office :(
