Dr. Bracanaro has been my doctor on and off since 2002 until just recently when he left to go to Gesinger Life in Kulpmont. My entire family; mother, father, grandmother, husband, both brothers and their wives saw Dr Bracnaro. Our only regret is he couldn’t treat our young children as he’s not a pediatrician. He has been a fantastic doctor, he listens to you, trustworthy, helpful, explains things well, takes time with you, he tries numerous alternative treatments to medication management, Dr. B truly cares for the patient. He isn’t a pain management specialist but helped me with my RSD by finding a non medication management pain tripod of tens units and PT with paraffin wax which is the only thing that helped my rsd when medication options didn’t. When my husband was diagnosed with diabetes in hospital they didn’t explain anything to him prescribed insulin no tips no meter to test etc. dr saw him next day and got him on the right track. We all miss him!
