Brooklyn, NY |
Every doctor turned us away, except for Dr. Bruce.My family member had terminal cancer (without treatment he had about 1 month) and Dr.B promised with surgery (w 1% chance of things going wrong due to surgery) that our family member would most likely survive minimum of five years. We had no time to waste,he was admitted that very same day, surgery the next day.We were fear stricken and Dr.B was our hope.Because of all his misguidance,false hope and greed, we had 9months of suffering before death

Dr. Bruce is a wonderful doctor and a great neurosurgeon. He removed my brain tumor without any complications. Thanks to him I am tumor free and hoping to stay that way. I will always keep him in my priority list if my tumor returns. I would recommend him to anyone who requires brain surgery. He is it. great doctor
