Being completely honest.. I had a thromboses in the worst place. It was limiting my life. I was embarrassed and put off going to the doctor thinking it would heal on it's own. My GP sent me to Dr. Bruce who never made me feel embarrassed and said if I was free on Friday (couple days away) he would take care of it. Surgery wasn't easy but a couple of weeks later I was back to my old self. I feel like this man saved my life. A total professional.
