I was referred to Dr. Bruce by a friend in the medical community after suffering a knee injury. An urgent care doctor had diagnosed a patella fracture after an X-ray and several friends and family encouraged me to see an orthopedist. I am so glad that I did as there was no fracture . Rather than keeping my leg straight and not moving it for 7-10 days (urgent care doctors orders), I began to immediately introduce gentle range of motion. 2 weeks later, I am back to 90% activities.

Dr. Bruce has treated me for some 3 months and I love his approach to treating me. I truly believe he cares about the whole patient and not just the piece he fixed. He asks about how the family is taking the news of my issues and listens when I speak about it. Truly wish we could clone Dr. Bruce and insert his bed-side manner and quality of care into every medical professional.

Without going into great detail, my wife and I would NOT recommend Dr. Erik Bruce to even our worse enemy. Very sad, we have never given a poor rating on any doctor or even any person or business.

I first went to Dr.Bruce to get a second opinion on a torn ACL and medial meniscus in my right knee. Upon first meeting the staff and then Dr.Bruce I pretty much knew this was the guy I wanted to go with, he was upbeat and you could tell he loved what he does. He then informed me that I was great candidate for the quad acl harvest (made famous by Dr.X) and that was exciting to hear, he would also be able to do a meniscus repair instead of the common meniscectomy. I had my surgery performed on Au
