The most thoughtful, principled and patient physician I have had in a very long time. I have serious hemorroids and was fearful of what I was facing. Dr Bruce calmed me down, described in detail that my issues could be dealt with via diet and other changes. He spent over 40 minutes with me and answered all my questions on various options RBL vs HAL, THD etc. He did not push any procedures, but said they are available if I choose. I have had no problems for 1/2 year following his recommendations. He is the best Dr in this practice I believe.
