I just wanted to thank Dr. Bruce and her staff for taking great care of me. I was addicted to pain medication and Dr. Bruce helped me realize it. Thanks to her I got the help I needed and am doing so much better.

The first time i seen this doctor was 3 days after having major surgery, Staples not even out yet, she wanted to schedule several tests that were invasive, she wouldn't give me the pills i needed saying take over the counter, the anxiety meds she gave me a script for the meds i had just told her i couldn't take, her nurse did not have the cuff on correctly to do blood pressure, and her staff it took two of them just to draw blood with both of them putting needles in my arm, nope no more dr bruce

I've been seeing her since October 2015. She doesn't listen to the patient, when they know there medical issues. She refuses to gI've referrals to a doctor. An won't look into your old medical files to see what you were diagnosed with. She does her own thing. I wouldn't refer her to anyone. I'm personally thinking about switching doctors.
