Ratings for Dr. John T. Bruchalski
very bad doctor! I had him as my O.B. when I was pregnant with my son from in 2014. The day I was in labor, I showed up to the hospital and he wanted to discharge me when I was already 41 weeks along my pregnancy. I almost never saw him that day, despite the fact I kept asking for him. After many hours, 19 exactly, he showed up just when my baby showed signs of distress, and said I had to have an emergency C-section. I ended up delivering vaginally with an episiotomy, and a 4th degree tear. I passed out after I was transferred out of the delivery room because I had lost so much blood. He never cared to pay me a visit after that. I never saw him again in the hospital for the next four days they kept me in ( because I was such in a bad shape). I received 3 blood bags before I could leave, and one of his colleagues from Tepeyac attended to me. The only thing he did was to give me a phone call when I was still in the hospital. He never explained to me what had happened during delivery, the nurses neither. So when I got back home I discovered in horror I had stools coming out of my vagina ( because of the 4th degree tear) . I could not understand how no matter how I wiped I always had stools in my underwear and a considerable amount, even when I did not go to the bathroom. Now when I go back for my two weeks visit he does not even remember he was the one who delivered me. Anyway, I had decided to let that go because my baby was well, or so I thought, even though I went through unmeasurable physical pain and emotional distress to se stools coming out of my vagina (as A WOMAN, THAT WAS HARD!!). My son is going to be three on January 23 2018, and he has been showing signs of developmental delay for almost a year and a half, and I believe it is because the distress he had suffered during childbirth. I am so hurt right now and I hope you read this Dr. Bruchalski, because I am going to sue you for neglect and gross negligence.
Dr. Bruchalski is attentive and cultivates a professional relationship with his patients and their spouses. I found him to be relentless in problem-solving when it came to my health challenges. He speaks with optimism and truth. I trust his knowledge and he's thorough at explaining course of treatment ideas. Unfortunately, getting appointments at his practice is a bit of a hassle unless a woman is pregnant- then, she get's right in. If you have the opportunity to consult with Dr. B it would be well-worth the hassle.
I love Dr. Bruchalski, and all of the doctors are Tepeyac Family Center! I am someone who fears doctors and I was always EAGER to go in for every appointment- they make you feel so special there! Dr. B delivered my baby and was wonderful throughout the entire L&D. He talked with me and my husband was so encouraging! The practice makes every attempt to avoid a C-Section... however if one is needed they will support multiple C-Sections (5+) in the future and are open to VBACs.
he's the best! both my kids were big and i never even needed an episiotomy! never used a forcep and vacuum. i'm an L&D nurse and i know that this is largely dependent on how good a doc is. and this guy is great. very compassionate. not an in and out kind of doctor. he'll spend a lot of time with you even if the practice is super busy. even during delivery, unlike most docs who just come in to deliver the baby, he sticks around a lot. and yes, the docs in the practice are very faithful people, i've had appts in the morning and have caught the staff doing morning prayer! but like the previous reviews said, they don't discriminate and they welcome all.
Dr. B is the most caring, compassionate doctor I have ever had. He is eager to listen to the "big picture" and is willing to pray with you if you'd like! He also uses new techniques to treat conditions such as PCOS related infertility, which has helped my quality of life TREMENDOUSLY. His office, Tepeyac Family Center hires very kind, accommodating, even-keeled professionals both at and behind the front desk. I can't say enough about Dr. Bruchalski and his staff. I highly recommend Dr. Bruchalski for ALL people, even if you are not a person of faith or one who isn't very Catholic. It doesn't matter there, they just treat you like the important human being that you are.
Conservative with VBAC's and they were in the middle of re-working their doula police which made me switch. However, I would highly recommend the practice for GYN services and OB service for those mothers wishing a natural, non-invasive hospital birth. The office staff is kind and friendly. They welcome your family/children to your visits and were very accomodating with my toddler every time. I would highly recommend Dr. Bruchalski.
