I have seen this doctor a few times. My experience has been almost always the same. He always looks like he's mad.. No bedside Manners. Doesn't say much to patients. He calls his female patients "mom" even if he's older than them. He's rude and incompetent; not to mention his staff. Hard to say which is worse.

Dr. Brusco's staff was pleasant, npbut just as incompetent as him. My appointment was scheduled during lunch, when they don't see patients. The doctor himself was extremely rude and arrogant. I would not recommend him to anyone, ever. Most unpleasant experience I have ever had with a doctor. Not to mention I did not receive a bill until almost a year after my one and only appointment.

He does not take the time to listen to patient concerns. Pushes patients to get the iodine tratment without explaining the risk and long term effects. Please stay away from this doctor.
|
No respect for his patient's time. I have never been to an appointment that took less than 2 hours. Even once you get called from the waiting room (at least an hour after your appointment time), there is still an hour or so spent waiting in the exam room. The sad part is... I think he is a good doctor but am contemplating a change.
