She explains why you understand.

Love this doctor! She is fun enough to put you at ease but not so silly that she lacks professionalism. She takes her time and doesn't rush patients. She answered all my questions, even the stupid ones :o)

I love Dr. Bruce. The hospital is another story. Both my children were emergency C-sections. Both times the hospital sent me home claiming I was not in labor. After having to go back later when She was there she kept me and saved both my children's lives. She always listened to me when I said something was wrong and thank god she did or I would have lost both my babies and could have died myself.

I would NOT recommend dr. Bruce. I had an appointment with her a few years ago when I was in college. While going through my medical history, she got to the section about drinking alcohol and said and you're a college student so I'm assuming you drink alcohol. I told her actually no I don't, I'm waiting until I'm 21 to drink alcohol. She said really??.. And laughed! Then through the whole appointment she was extremely condescending and rude! I left my appointment early and got another Dr.

Dr. Bruce is a perfectionist, she knows what she wants, she is very clear and direct, she looks over all the details, she always has the babies and mothers best interest in mind, she dedicates time to each patient never rushing her appointments, she answers any and all questions we may have. I highly trust her knowledge in medicine. She is firm and has high expectations in the hospital nursing staff. I would highly recommend her!
in Houston, Texas |
I liked her, but neither she nor her nurse remembered me at all after seeing me 3 times in 5 weeks. It was literally as if they were meeting me for the first time at every visit. They asked me the same questions each time, the answers to which should have been noted in my chart. As someone who is likely to develop complications in pregnancy, it was just not worth the risk to continue seeing a doctor who could not seem to keep track of who I am and what my past complications are.
in Houston, TX |
I was worried and apprehensive. I am still worried.....but Dr. Bruce helped me feel comfortable and reassured with no fluff or sugar coating with a big helping of respect. I hate the yearly visit but will be a regular participant as long as Dr. Bruce is practicing.

She is really patient and caring.
