Specialties

Dr. Roger D Bruce has the following 2 specialties

  • Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine

    The main responsibility of a perinatologists, also known as a maternal-fetal medicine specialist, is to treat, monitor and assist pregnant mothers through high-risk pregnancies. This includes high blood pressure, early labor and bleeding. They’re also able to identify birth defects and then recommend necessary treatments to support your baby before he/she is born.
    Other reasons you may need to see a perinatologist during your pregnancy include diabetes, problems with a previous pregnancy or carrying twins. Having completed OB-GYN training, they’re experts on the female reproductive system with additional specialized training in un-routine pregnancies. So, whether you know you’re at risk going into your pregnancy or problems arise unexpectedly, perinatologists can help you.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Dr Gloom and Doom

This Dr is very rude and short with his new moms and dads. Our experience with him was not very pleasant. His diagnosis was giving us the worst case scenario and causing unnecessary stress on our entire family. I will not recommend him to any friends. He needs to learn some bedside manner and learn to show some empathy.

Dr. Bruce's feeding protocols are out of date. NICU babies should not routinely be left unfed for 24-48hours!

He kept our baby in he NICU for several weeks and was kept ordering test after test. He could never tell us what was wrong with her because every single test came back normal. It was a very scary experience.

Dr Bruce was very understanding of our child's problems and why he was in the NICU. He took time to explain everything to us and made sure that we understood him and what was going on without son. As far as we are concerned, Dr. Bruce saved our child's life.
