My daughter has been seeing Dr. Truccone for 11 1/2 years and he diagnosed my daughter. She had a triple bypass open heart surgery at the age of 8 months at Children's Hospital of Detroit. My child had 6 months to live when he discovered that she needs surgery and she is doing just fine. Dr. Truccone is very thorough and straight- down to business. We love him and we feel that he was a large attribute in saving our child's life. Thumbs up to Dr. Truccone!!!

We found Dr. Truccone very thorough and knowledgeable in his testing and diagnostics with our pediatric aged son. We highly recommend Dr. Truccone to family, friends and other new patients.

This doctor is a quack and misdiagnosed my daughter only to find out he did the same with a friends daughter a few years later. In both cases, 2nd and 3rd opinions showed that nothing was wrong with either of our daughters, yet he had raised significant alarms and even prescribed what would have been harmful medicines. Thank goodness my wife and the other mom had the awareness to question what they heard and before giving them what would have been harmful medicine.
