Patient Feedback

Mariedy P.

My oldest son is 15 and my youngest is 9, My kids have been patients since birth. I have never had a problem with this office. The front staff is great and the nurses are kind, gentle and caring. I feel like I’m speaking with family and not healthcare providers. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I pray that Dr Bruck doesn’t not retire until my kids are of age. People will only rate when they have a problem and not when credit is do. So for a change I can write that I have Always been 100% satisfied with this office.

  Dr. Aqua is THE BEST!! Staff is great with kids also!! I read some of the reviews and we have been going there for over 8 years now and heveen;t had any problems. Not to say these comments aren’t legit….nothing is ever going to run smooth ALWAYS or be the way we want them to. But at the end of the day, the MOST important thing is that these doctors. LOVE what they do and are FANTASTIC at it!! Dr. Aqua is VERY thorough and has given us GREAt advice and ideas throughout the years in some situations. We are FOREVER grateful to her and Dr. Bruck and their staff for making us always feel welcomed and protected!!

  I’ve been bringing my almost 11 year old son here since he was born. Great front office staff. Check-in is always a pleasure and quick! The medical assistant is great at what she does, especially when giving shots. I’ve had a few times where I had to request a same day appointment due to an emergency and they always find a way to squeeze me in. From check-in to check out, I’m never there for more than an hour, maybe 1 hour and a half. I’ll never switch practices! From check-in staff to MA to Dr. Bruck and Dr. Aqua, they know what they are doing and never push me into something that I do not feel is right for my son.
Definitely recommend it.
