What People Say About Dr. William Bruce, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
From the staff to Dr. Bruce himself, my mother was treated dismissively and patronized. It was evident they viewed her as just a stupid old woman not worth their time. She was given no instructions on how to treat her injured knee and just ushered out the door since it was "mostly arthritis", desite the MRI showing three ligament tears. I am furious at the way she was treated at this office and she will be getting a second opinion from someone more competent and compassionate.
