Brescia didn't get a blood test when I told him we were trying for children and his practice diagnosed me with thyroid cancer after my first trimester. Had he done the blood test we would've treated me before having children. There are terrible side effects to high hormone levels during pregnancy. Plus, one doctor didn't get the blood tests done correctly which lead to another month of waiting for the diagnosis. Then the last doctor for some reason wouldn't tell me what kind of cancer I had even though it was on all of the reports. I ended up spending this Christmas crying to my family that I could be giving my unborn child cancer through my blood which was not the case. They are impersonal and unprofessional.
I saw all the OBs in this practice through about 23 weeks of my first pregnancy, and all was fine. Then, during a routine appointment, Dr. Brescia made some very upsetting comments to me about how my baby would do at birth because of some medication I had to take while pregnant (that this office had put me on, with the understanding that it was safe for the baby!) He left me in the room crying and having a panic attack for my unborn child's health and never followed up. I wound up seeking a fetal echocardiogram to verify that my baby was doing okay. Long story short, he is (thank God) in great shape, but the ECG showed some small anomalies that the cardiologists wanted to follow for the rest of my pregnancy and in the year after. I wound up switching to a high-risk doctor (Dr. Principe, who is in the same building--he's awesome), delivering in a new hospital I had never been in (St. Joe's--also awesome), and my baby spent 3 days in the NICU for monitoring. I am so appreciative of the great medical team who took care of us, and so happy that my baby is well. But, seriously, who does that to someone?! I had to have a planned Caesarean for baby's safety, and when he was out they whisked him off to the NICU immediately. I didn't get to hold him for 24 hours. If Dr. Brescia had not made the thoughtless comments he did, I would have never sought an ECG, and would have most likely had an uneventful and pleasant birth. I am personally past it, but it is not a pregnancy experience I would wish for anyone else.
I am a fairly new patient of Dr. Brescia's about 2 years now. I am reading these comments on here and I cannot believe what you all are writing... maybe you did have a bad day or experience, but I was in the office one day when a lady was at the front desk and was complaining about her appt, SHE WAS AN HOUR EARLY and demanded to be seen before the doctor was even in the office! My sympathy goes out to the patients who have lost a baby bc no one should ever have to go thru that, but for everyone else you have to understand that their job is not easy! Getting back to this patient, the 2 women at the front desk kept their cool (idk how) and were very nice to the woman asking her if she'd like to see another dr that was in the office and she completely thru a fit bc her dr wasnt there when she wanted him to be. totally ridiculous! yes sometimes i had to wait, but when u see dr. brescia or any of the dr's there, they spend more time with you if needed and do not kick you out, and ppl need to understand that. the staff is great and very nice, the office mgr, ehh i would agree with some ppl on here that he isn't the "greatest" but their office is so busy, i dont understand how they do it. Before taking some of these ppl's advice NOT to see dr. brescia, you should see for yourself and then determine if u like him or not, bc i certainly do and i rec. him and the other dr's to my family and friends and no 1 has had anything bad to say, but thats why everyone is entitled to their own opinion. i love the staff and all the dr's bc they really do care.
