Ratings for Dr. Domenick Braccia
The only reason I keep seeing Dr. Braccia is for him. He is knowledgeable, informed and caring. He keeps up with the latest treatment protocols and genuinely listens to your issues and symptoms. I believe he treats correctly and does change protocols through logic and reason. His staff, however, isn't the greatest. They seem completely oblivious to the fact that the people coming in are paying out of pocket and are EXTREMELY ill. We are and have been extremely ill for years. We have severe neurolgical impairment and trying to even get to an appointment without crashing our car or passing out is extremely monumental. They wouldn't even call in a prescription for me. They told me they don't do that. I'm astonished of their ignorance that the patients fighting for their lives can spend 3 hours in their office and not even offer the courtesy of calling in a prescription for antibiotics. When I made the comment of how much money I spent and how ill I am they finally said they can email it over. Every doctors office in existence does this for their patients. The staff seems irritated that they even have to deal with you. I was so ill that I had to pull over a few times because I was vommitting and couldn't even see correctly. I am bewildered by this behavior. The staff is very unprofessional and it honestly makes me not even want to go anymore.
Dr. Braccia is sadly seems to be in this soly for the money. Not only by his total lack of concentration on my health, erratic changing of meds, but also based on a conversation with him. I think his Physician Assistant was far more caring and knowledgeable. Dr. Braccia, sorry, Lyme patients suffer enough with nonsense, then up you pop as the LLMD answer. Would not ever recommend this Doctor. Save your money and research for a caring Doctor, whose goal is to get you better.
Gave my appt to someone else then told me to come back another day after waiting 2 hours. His wife was very rude and he was not very knowledgable about current treatments. I took my records and left his office!
I have been a patient of Dr B’s for almost 2 yrs. I had lyme disease for 12 yrs and was bedridden for 7 of those years when I started going to him. In the years previous to seeing Dr B, I saw 20+ drs, and the best they could come up with was a Chronic Fatigue Syndrome diagnosis and zero effective treatment. Dr B did more thorough testing for lyme and co-infections, and took history of symptoms into account. Under his care, I am now at 50-60% functionality and still improving, which is like a miracle to me (I knew healing would be a process since I have been sick for so long). He attends seminars to keep up with the latest info. He is extremely knowledgeable. He did not push IV therapy, but I opted for it when orals were not enough. In the 2 yrs I have been going there, his staff, including his wife Kim, have been fantastic. I recommend him to anyone I know that suffers from lyme disease.
All they care about is money and are way behind with current information and treatments. They push people's bodies way to hard and end just making people sicker then when they came and then try to make you believe that that is a good thing. You are completely misaligned from the very beginning. The staff is very rude and extremely unprofessional. The doctor and the PA constantly contradict each other, making treatment very confusing. He randomly changes his treatment protocols and gives certain patients special treatment.
I traveled from North Carolina after doing an online search of Lyme literate doctors. Therefore, I was going to want the trip(s) to be very worth it considering my time and since I had to pay for lodging, gas, meals, etc. as well as the total bill. Well, I am happy to report it was definitely worth it! Dr. Braccia was knowledgeable, compassionate and truly listened. He has an amazingly thorough blood test which alone would be worth it so he and you can assess your situation. He did not push treatment on me and gave me a couple of options. His staff was friendly and helpful. I cannot imagine people having an issue with this office.
Dr Braccia and his entire staff have been nothing short of amazing. I've been to so many rude doctors and doctors that just don't seem to care about my symptoms. He seems to be very knowledgeable and compassionate and actually listens intently to what you tell him. He spends a very long time with his patients getting to know their medical history in order to give the best diagnosis possible. Being his patient, I am most impressed by his staff. The nurses are all very nice, very helpful. They all actually seem to enjoy their jobs and never give you any attitude about anything. His office staff is also amazing. They went above and beyond to help me anytime I ever had any issue. Kim, his wife and office manager, is especially helpful. I don't agree with any of the other reviews about her being mean or nasty... She has never once been that way to me. She spent an entire day trying to solve a problem for me when any other doctors office would have not gone to the extreme she did to help. I
I was a patient of Braccia, let me say that this man should NOT under any circumstances be treating anyone for Lyme Disease. He does not know what he is doing, he is under educated when it comes to Lyme and co infections. I was diagnosed with Chronic Late Stage Lyme disease and he told me I needed to start IV Rocephin immediately. He verbally told me that he can cure Lyme Disease, for the record there is NO CURE for Lyme disease. He also told me that I have zero co infections, that's because he doesn't know how to test properly, I have all of them. To add to the complete disgust of dr Braccia on the other side you have his vile wife Kim. This woman screamed at me at the top of her lungs when I asked how much treatment was and what the payment options were. It's ALL about money with these two, patient care is the least of his and her concern. I met several patients there that were back for IV for the 5th time and still no cure. His license should be taken from him permanently.
Dr. Braccia and his staff are one of the most helpful doctors we have seen. He is very knowledgable about lymre disease and the coinfections . As far as being on time its the patients who seem to have the troule lol ,you know lyme brain . He and his staff go the extra mile to keep you comfortable while you are there receiving your treatment . The complaints I've heard are no home iv treatment . If you know anything about iinsurance for a doc , an iv pic line to your heart has very high risks , and patients are most of the time too sick to know if they are in trouble (clots, infections ) so as much as i hate the drive we feel very safe with him and his staff watching over us . And for the record he is not in in Havertown ! My husband will make a 100% recovery thanks to him and his staff ! Thanks, Donna Gillespie
