      Dr. Bruns was treating my husband for dementia, after talking with her we both had hope - hope that we could live as well as possible with the correct medical treatment; that things could be dealt with and that even though it wasn't a great diagnosis, we would still have time together - time to live and make more memories.

      Dr. Burns is truly a wonderful doctor. English is not my moms 1st language. I interpret for my mom. (I'm writing this review for my mom) Dr. Bruns makes sure my mom understands everything. We never feel rushed. Dr. Bruns prints out all information in Italian for my mom. Never had that done before. We highly recommend Dr. Bruns.

      Dr. Bruns is a godsend to me. She treated me in Ohio before moving to New York. Her opinion is something I trust highly and she provided me and my family with such useful and important information regarding H.E./S.R.E.A.. She is such a wise physician and has such a caring and kind demeanor. I miss her very much.
