Verified Patient Reviews
Very gentle and thoughtful approach.
Dr. Elena had such a calm and peaceful way during the entire appointment. I felt very comfortable talking to her, even though its very difficult for me to open up. Just her presence in the room and the way she talks, makes you feel like her, calm and in peace. I highly Recommended her!
Super knowledgeable and helpful - a great reassuring presence!
Extremely knowledgeable about medication for bi-polar depression. Soft spoken, guides the session back towards issues gently. Recommended vitamins and meditation to address the mind/body connection.
Dr Bruck was professional and kind - I was pleased with my appointment and will return to her in the future.
She was incredibly intelligent and helpful.
Very soft spoken and calming. She was friendly and was clearly invested in our session.
Very thorough on the first appointment.
Quick and professional. No wait. Pricy, though.
My first impression, before even meeting Dr. Bruck was great. She recommended I send her a paragraph about myself prior to our meeting. I could tell that not only had she actually read what I sent her, but had a list of questions pertaining to what I had written. She was very thorough and I didn't feel rushed. I really felt like we had enough time for her to understand me, get the whole picture, and make an educated evaluation.
I think Dr. Bruck is great. She was very thorough with my history and had a lot of constructive advice on how to deal with an upcoming stressor. She did not attempt to push unwanted drugs on me. I plan on seeing her again.
Awesome! Would recommend to anyone going through immediate problems. Very helpful and good listener, good advice.
Dr. Bruck is calm, empathetic, and intelligent.
Good first visit. Will be returning
Dr. Bruck was extraordinarily comprehensive in getting a full picture of my current life, health, diet, mental and life history in order to tailor a medication and activity regime to help me move forward with my mental health. This is the kind of detailed evaluation I wish every doctor could provide.
She is very smart, but not condescending, and very eager to help.
Very nurturing and very smart. Highly recommended.
