What People Say About Dr. Bruce Pastor, MD
Reply
If you're comfortable with a Dr. who doesn't listen to you, then Dr. Pastor is your guy. Even after an Endoscopy & Colonoscopy combined, he brushed me off as though simply watching what I eat was the answer. I was on every super restrictive diet for a little over a month and of the 'safe' items they still caused my symptoms. His reply. Give it another month. No understanding of what the patient goes through. No understanding because he doesn't listen. My advice, find another physician.
