Dr. Brucculeri is not only an amazing doctor but an amazing soul. A lot of the great doctors lack bedside manners and a normal empathy for people, but not this guy. He's funny, personable, smart and innovative. I am so lucky and blessed to have Dr. Brucculeri on my medical team. If there's something wrong, he'll get to the bottom of it. He has a go get it attitude and a strong desire to truly help his patients. ALSO, I love the fact that his office typically runs on time. Great bonus!

Worst experience I've ever had with any physician. Dismissive when you ask questions, very arrogant attitude. Felt like I was walking on eggshells when voicing my concerns at a vulnerable time in my life. Avg. wait time for me to be seen was 2 hrs, (not 30 minutes), for every appt. He cancelled two appts, & I couldn't reschedule with him in a timely manner. He didn't seem compassionate to me at all, (or at very least staunchly unconcerned)! I have never left a negative review for anyone in my life, and am I'm still reluctant to do so. However, I was shocked & discouraged by his unprofessional behavior, so am leaving this review as a warning for others. If he treats one patient badly, he will treat others similarly. I would never recommend him.

The wait was a little long, but he is a specialist. Well worth it. He took the time to answer all my questions, and did not seem to be in a rush at all.

Dr Brucculeri is perhaps the most competent and compassionate physician that I have ever had. He has my complete faith and trust. He actually listens to me and takes the time to explain my medical condition. His staff are equally as professional.

I started going to Dr. Brucculeti when I was first diagnosed with kidney disease, I can not compliment the knowledge, understanding, and compassionate. He will take as much time as you need and answer all the questions with honesty.

Dr. Brucculeri really cares for his patients. His treatment of my mother-in-law gives her confidence and a sense of dignity. He listens and takes into consideration all of the information at hand. He is willing to explain what is happening and go over the results of tests without making you feel stupid. His positive bedside manner, and high level of knowledge, makes you feel better when you leave his office. It is very apparent he loves his job, and cares for his patients. Thank you!!

A very thorough, knowledgeable and thoughtful doctor who listens. He took the time to address my symptoms and order tests he thought were necessary. When he said, "I think there's definitely something going on here; if I can't get to the bottom of it I'll send you to a Rheumatologist," it gave me a sense of hope. I trust his expertise and appreciate his concern.
