Dr. Joseph W Bruckert has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Excellent practice

Here I am again giving feedback on Dr Bruckert. I am puzzled by the few very negative comments. There are always a few people who don't like what they hear and can't get there way. I have been with Dr Bruckert for over 10 years and with the practice longer. It has always been consistently excellent. Crescent Family Practice in general and Joseph Bruckert specifically continue to perform excellent service. I just had my yearly physical and once again was very pleased. Dr. Bruckert keeps up on the latest reports that affect everyones health. If he sees a medical study that shows adverse effects from a medication that I am taking for conditions that I have he quickly notifies me and changes meds. He is personable but does press you to help yourself to better health. His PA's, Melissa Korzi and Jennifer Taylor, both are very knowledgeable and personable with great experience.

Five Stars

About a year ago I had to make a change in my physician. My sister-in law is a medical professional and recommended this practice. Over the past year I have had an occasion to see both Dr. Bruckert and Dr. Musselman. Both are excellent. This is the best run medical organization I have ever experienced. From the reception desk to the back examining rooms the professionalism the best I have ever experienced. I have interfaced with both Doctors, one of the PA's and one of the lab techs. All of them have been extremely professional and interested in providing exceptional care. I would highly recommend this practice.

Very Poor Customer Service

I would not recommend this practice. They forced me to pay a copay that I didn't owe (due to insurance covering my preventative annual physical at 100%) just to be seen by the doctor and it has taken weeks, going on months, to get my refund (still don't have it). Not only that, they were completely unwilling to answer my medical questions, and when I complained to the doctor, she cut me off mid-sentence and told me to "move on." After requesting our medical records and letting them know we (both my husband and I) were not returning due to their poor customer service all around, I received a "discharge from the practice." All I could do at that point was laugh, AT THEM.

One Star

I am so disappointed with this practice. My family were members of this practice for over 15 years. There was a mix up with billing and my son had a bill, $86, that was not paid. He's in college and over 18 so they sent a notice saying since it wasn't paid he was not going to be able to continue with the practice. When I saw the notice I called to pay and ask if he could stay in the practice since our entire family has been with them for over 15 years. The office manager was very short with me and said she would talk to the doctor. I received another notice that said they would not change their mind. My husband and I both made calls to try to speak personally with our doctor to explain what happened. The office manager was very rude and we were not allowed at any time to speak with one of the doctors or physician assistants at the practice where we had been seen many times over the 15 years. Then we received a notice that they would not continue seeing any of our family and we would need to find new doctors. I can not believe that Dr. Bruckert or Jennifer Taylor, the two we see the most, would allow this to happen and would not take the time to speak with us. We had a great relationship with them until that point and I can't believe they allowed us to be treated this way. You build a trust with your doctors and although I understand we made an error not getting that one bill paid, I can't believe this is how we were treated.
